Readership has been up here at The Virginia Conservative these last several months. In fact, November places first in overall visits per month with October clocking in at third behind January 2010. Even though December is not over yet, it too is shaping up to be another well-read month. Now you may have noticed that lately, I’ve been exploring a variety of ways to expand my audience. After all, the more people you reach, the greater chance you have to make some sort of meaningful difference.
Well, yesterday afternoon marked my first appearance on the radio. For those of you in the Charlottesville listening area, you might have caught me on The Schilling Show. The show airs on 1070 AM WINA every weekday from Noon until 2 PM. On this program, Rob Schilling, his guests, and his callers discuss numerous political and religious issues, as well as local topics of importance to the Charlottesville community. Although you can also tune in to the program on the radio here in the Valley, reception is spotty due to the inference caused by the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Over all, I thought my performance went well. Although, I’ll freely admit that pretty nervous before we started, I must say that I really enjoyed my time on the air. I wish that I would’ve had a bit more time, as there were several important issues I would have loved to discussed, but I guess I’ll have to save them for another day. As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! If you are interested in hearing my segment, you can find in on the podcast section found here. Just scroll down the page until you find my name and simply click on the playback format you prefer.
I want to say thank you again to Mr. Schilling for letting me come on his program and I hope that those of you unfamiliar with his work will take the opportunity to check out his show. Although I don’t know the next time or place, I’m really looking forward to my next spot on the radio. Maybe you’ll be able to tune in.
