Steed Media Group, the parent company of rolling out, is proud to announce the launch of “rolling out LIVE,” an expansion of its digital media network starting Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018. This new and exciting initiative will offer a platform featuring seven new one-hour talk shows with some of the hottest hosts from coast to coast engaging with audiences about the day’s most newsworthy, trending and provocative topics.
“Media is constantly changing and we recognize the importance of flexibility to continue to be a leader in those trends,” says Randy Fling, chief operations officer of Steed Media Group, a national entertainment company whose assets include a digital network, print publications, content studios, and book and music publishing.
“Rolling out LIVE will be organic conversations over a variety of shows such as technology, politics, food, beverages, relationships, inspiration and empowerment — all designed to give our viewers and listeners an important, insightful and always fun take on our community and the world.”
The new platform and lineup were added after the successful May 1 launch of “100-Proof Radio Show,” a digital podcast airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (EST). The “100-Proof Radio Show” is hosted by journalist and spirits connoisseur Jé Wesley Day, who leads a lively weekly discussion with subject-matter experts about the etiquette and decorum of drinking alcoholic beverages in various social settings, while also dispelling myths and stigmas surrounding alcohol consumption.
