Make Liberty Media "Mainstream" !Submitted by Zak Carter on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 08:40
Last year I saw a need for more expert voices in support of liberty and Ron Paul in the media, and I started lining up interviews for the Huffington Post writer Robin Koerner who had started the “Blue Republican” movement. By the time I wrapped up my surrogate speaker project I was also lining up interviews for Colonel Macgregor, Pastor Brian Jacobs and eight other expert speakers, each representing a specific coalition. For Robin alone I had lined up close to 40 media appearances, but it was nowhere near enough. Not Even Close. We were completely drowned out by the cacophony of the established MSM.
That needs to change Before 2016, and I’m starting with radio. We need a voice that has an audience size to compete with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, NPR, Sean Hannity, etc.
In all of my dealings with alternative media/liberty talk show hosts over the past year there was one voice that really stood out to me as someone who had that potential to become a household name - Josh Tolley - http://www.joshtolley.com/ - Josh is extremely dynamic, young, charismatic, a solid advocate of liberty and really appeals to a younger demographic while still keeping the older generations tuned in. Josh has a real passion for helping people gain their freedom with what has been called by one fan a ''Tony Robbins meets Ronald Reagan'' style. His latest book, “Quit Your Job or Die: Discover the Importance of Self-Employment” was a top ten best seller. On top of this he’s ranked as one of the top 100 business and personal growth trainers in the world. I started working on helping to grow Josh’s show just last month and have already had a small bit of success. Lining up live speaking engagements for Josh will also help increase public awareness of him, and with smart phone radio apps really taking off in popularity, this is more important that ever before and I’m making strides there too. I’m also working on getting other media to cover him, and I won’t be happy till he’s a household name and then I can start looking for the next liberty loving voice in alternative media to promote.
But I need your help, and there’s a lot You can do to help me!
