I have never experienced a more thoroughly run, competent and professional company as VoiceAmerica. From the first conversation to the airing of my show, careful thought and attention went into every detail with guidance and care. It is, simply, a wonderful experience.
I want to thank you all for doing such a terrific job on your end. I know that I'm getting emails to you 'just in time'--but this is the real time here when the pieces come together. Chad is doing a terrific job as the sound engineer. I get to listen to each show over the weekend, and my compliments to the quality of sound and professionalism… we've had terrific guests that I think make the show quite interesting.
All good. No complaints.

I love working with everyone at VoiceAmerica, especially Nathan my Senior Executive Producer, Randy in host services and my engineers (Michael & Dionne) - they have all contributed to my comfort level as well as to the show's success thus far. I look forward to many more episodes in the future!

I want to say a very big thank you for all
your hard work, professionalism and
creativity. I feel in very capable hands
and I am really looking forward to my
A BIG Thank you to the team!
I just want to tell you that I really enjoyed yesterday's radio show. It's
about time that someone addressed the issues Blacks have with their hair and
learning to swim. Many of us don't go in the water because of our hair and we
prevent our children from going in for the same reason. I think if you did more
discussions around this topic, you'll see more of us in swimming lessons. We
have to feel that there's an easy way to deal with this issue. We need to know
that learning to swim is a wonderful experience. Maybe if you receive enough
responses to revisit this issue, that you could have one of your Black swim
instructors speak to the radio audience.
I took swimming lessons on and off for 7 years. I got so discouraged that I
haven't been in the water for the last 3 years. This month, I'm going back in
the water (after I get my hair braided, of course). You and your radio show
have encouraged me to not give up. Speaking of... I really hate that your radio
show will be ending soon. I knew it was only for a short while, but I hope
there's a way to continue the great discussions.
As a side note, because I can't swim, I made sure that my children can. They
swim like dolphins.
Thanks for everything!
The Learn To Swim Show
One day I transposed a telephone number as I always do, and found myself at the switchboard of VoiceAmerica.com. Instead of finding a guy by the name of Tracy, I was directed to the only name in the directory that came close, and that was Tacy Trump. Within 10 minutes I had bought my first hour of airtime. Within 2 years I had reached 1 million people. To this day, Tacy Trump is still my Senior Executive Producer, and we have climbed high mountains together, reached overseas to interview some of the most incredible people, and have created one of the most popular shows in this genre – The Dr. Pat Show. None of this would have been possible without the talent, technology, management, and leadership at VoiceAmerica.com. I will be forever grateful to the people that helped me find my true life purpose, passion, and inspiration. I love what I do, and now I help other people do the same. That one hour show has now turned into ten hours of live radio per week, and the launch of the Transformation Network. I am honored to be part of a family of other hosts that have the courage to take their message out on the airwaves over one of the largest and fastest growing networks in the world.

As a kid I often thought it would be cool to be on the radio. But as happens with many kid dreams, that one disappeared along with my desire to play shortstop for the Cleveland Indians. That is until Senior producer Tacy Trump called me and invited me to try hosting a show. Given my very full schedule I very reluctantly agreed to give it a try. Much to my surprise, my show, Turning Hard Times into Good Times has become far more successful than I ever imagined it could be thanks to various factors not the least of which has been the technical and business support of Voice America. I have my own producer and engineers who work me every week in providing a very popular show. Also, the management has been very helpful and flexible in working with me to meet my needs it building up this show which by the way has become a profitable business. Although this is a web based radio business, its just like operating a terrestrial radio show with fewer hassles. So at age 62, I have found a new career that has given me a new lease in life as I approach my golden years. I never did replace Chico Carrasquel at Shortstop for the Cleveland Indians and I think at my age the chances of going to the moon are better of achieving that goal. But the dream of hosting a radio show has come true and it can for you as well if you aspire to it.
Turning Hard Times into Good Times
I am TOTALLY excited about being part of the VoiceAmerica.com family. They are the TRUE pioneers of internet radio which has become exciting NEW media platform. Being able to broadcast from my home, V/A.com studios, or on location through my computer on the Voice America brand has been a dream come true. The GREAT people at VoiceAmerica.com led by Jeff Spenard are the TRUE pioneers of this every growing media. They are visionaries when it comes to making on demand radio/TV through the world wide web.
VoiceAmerica has are the Global GIANTS when it comes to introducing the WORLD to the EXCITING landscape of NEW Media. I am PROUD to a member of this GREAT company.

I'd have had only had one show so far. Allowing me to brag about it along with give me a deeper repoir with my guests. My brand name has increased already.
I have had a bunch of listeners so far and received one referral from it. Should be a good, long term client.
In addition, I just did a local radio show today. A listener referred me to her boss who owns the station.
With the help from Ray, Ruben, Jeff, Matt, Mike, Ryan and the crew, I am going to tear it up!!!

"I have been highly satisfied with the experience of hosting Visionary Radio with Gisele on Voice America. The people who were working in collaboration with me at Voice America were all exceptionally professional, competent and reliable. In particular, I was impressed with the level of expertise of the engineers who get the show 'on the air', and how they are able to quickly solve literally any problem, and then quickly create high quality polished permanent recordings of each show. As someone new to this type of media work, they helped me feel confident and that there was always someone there to help, even during a live show.
I was assigned a team of caring experts!. All my questions were answered and contract terms were met, with no surprises, and with the end result of a series of high quality podcasts which are of great value in my online and offline work in the positive change movement.
I would recommend Voice America as a partner for any small or larger business or organization looking to increase their profile and service to their intended clientele or community at large."
"With many years in broadcast and production, one always is reminded with every due diligence to realize the importance of paying tribute to individuals and firms holding significant vision and passion for their industry. In bringing In Discussion to Voice America as a candidate for its technology platform, I have been impressed beyond words for the manner and dedication to which this programming has been supported with the highest regard. As a product reflecting very cutting edge principles it is challenging in the day to day production intensity, to realize the importance of those behind the scenes whose knowledge and respect ensures detailed and accurate delivery. Their exactness and hard work reflects the vision led in any environment of that leader who holds strong values and earnest support of its hosts and presenters. In many years I have seen and been privileged to meet those who meet these criteria. However, in these changing and demanding times those efforts of maintaining an ever expanding vision is most rare. The devotion to an industry held at Voice America by its founder Jeff Spenard, displays acute awareness to the rare individual who believes in his product and service. I am delighted in these difficult times when friendship and professionalism is at its greatest in this individual, who has constantly crossed the constant barrage of roadblocks most evident and expected in creating such a program with style, true belief and never-ending dedication. For this I could not see a comparable organization either in the United States or Great Britain that would be able to match the commitment to which Voice America and its founder offers so eloquently and with the highest ethics to this program."

Holistic Living with Tina Marie airs live Tuesdays at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Health & Wellness Network. Tina Marie has been broadcasting the latest from the health and nutrition scene on the VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network since December of 2007. Here's what a few of her guests and listeners have to say:
“Tina Marie is a bright and talented health resource that I greatly respect. She is a glowing example of a total body, mind and spirit philosophy and the benefits of leading a balanced and holistic life. Tina Marie is always seeking to share her gifts and help others. Her hard work ethic, friendly communication style, and dedication to friends and clients have made her a natural leader in her business and natural health community… She has repeatedly amazed me and many others with the depth of her knowledge and connections in the natural health field. This ability to condense large volumes of complex analysis into simple guidelines and suggestions is a gift that makes her unique in today’s world of information overload.” - MM
“Natural health is my hobby and I’ve been to lots of practitioners through the years. I would rate Tina at the top as she is very caring, and it’s obvious that she enjoys helping people regain their health. She also stays up on the newest advancements which makes me feel that she is doing the research and study necessary to keep me healthy. I especially enjoy her seminars which are an added benefit and help to enrich our lives in other ways to round out our enjoyment of life.” - Joanna Devine
“Tina Marie is very knowledgeable about foods and the nutrients they provide and how to prepare great raw food dishes. She is very nice and personable.” - LM
“I enjoyed everything about this class! I know now that I can have more foods in the raw.” - NL
“Tina Marie is very passionate and comforting while teaching; therefore, the Live Food diet and lifestyle appears attainable. She makes it look easy.” - JH
“Tina Marie made things fun and easy. I would recommend her to others interested in this lifestyle” – CM
“I was interviewed by Tina Marie for my book Inside Every Woman: Using the 10 Strengths You Didn’t Know You Had to Get the Career and Life You Want Now. She didn’t just ask the questions. She participated in a meaningful way. Tina Marie clearly helps her listeners to become all they are meant to be. This was one of the most delightful interviews I have had.” – Vickie L. Milazzo, RN, MSN, JD
“I have been listening to Holistic Living with Tina Marie for about 5 months now. I am very impressed with her broad knowledge as well as the class and quality of guests she has hosted. Her talk show has been extremely informative to me and I have personally taken her advice and am using it in my day to day well being. Thank you Tina Marie and I look forward to upcoming talks.” Sonya

When I was first approached about doing a show with VoiceAmerica, I thought, "Why would I want this? Who would want to listen to me rant? It's going to cost me money. What benefit will I get? I don't know how to do this." But, something told me to dive in and ignore the negatives. I got a sponsor rather easily, actually received an income check on my first 13 episodes, got total support and teaching and patience from the VoiceAmerica staff, especially my Executive Producer Jon Missall. And my Engineer Justin Jackman is such a pro -- they make it so you cannot mess up! After the first nervous show, have honed my craft and feel like an old radio pro. I have been hired to host another independent radio program and to narrate an award-winning documentary.
The status I get from the radio show is unbelievable. Rather than the 15 years plus experience and remarkable track record I have within my industry, new business prospects are more impressed with the fact that I have my own show on VoiceAmerica! Strange but true. Furthermore, I have been able to network and meet people after having them on as guests. I have gotten several clients out of having my show on the VoiceAmerica network. The value of the status and recognition of being associated with VoiceAmerica.com cannot be measured. Take a look at their line up and you will see why VoiceAmerica is number one!

Quote from Lauron Sonnier to her Senior Executive Producer Jon Missall:
"I'm excited to embark on my second show tomorrow, and as I reflect on the inaugural experience, I feel the need to share some important thoughts with you.
First and foremost, thank you for your terrific feedback, insight, and overall support. It's a wonderful and comforting blessing to know that you're always just a click or call away. As an entrepreneur, I often feel like I'm stuck alone in the middle of the sea. It's tremendously comforting to know that you're taking great care of me and that I can turn to you anytime for expert and encouraging help. I am truly grateful to know you, and to have you on my side.
Please also help me extend my sincere appreciation to Jeffrey, Nicole, Ruben, Justin, and the rest of the team. All of you are top-notch all the way. I'm thrilled with the quality, creativity, and overall production of all of my elements. I'm beaming with pride every time I view or listen to them. Also, the first show could not have been better supported or more smooth in its execution.Your professionalism, expertise, creativity, and sense of urgency are appreciated, admirable, and definitely rare today. I've worked in television before with many similar issues. I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, and all of you are nothing less than the best..."

The network has grown not only in leaps and bounds in numbers but in quality of programming, technical capabilities and marketing expertise.

"Why Shamanism Now?" with host Christina Pratt airs every Wednesday at 2pm PT on VoiceAmerica's 7th Wave Network
Just wanted to send a special thank you to you and all of the members of the team that is VoiceAmerica and the 7th Wave Network for all of your kind and professional help in making this radio show happen. In all of my life I’ve never worked with an organization in which ALL of the people I worked with were always kind, giving and very professional. You know in this old world, you learn to expect rudeness and unprofessionalism. I have not once found it at VoiceAmerica.
Every email, phone call and production issue has been answered quickly, efficiently and with kind professionalism. Every problem has been quickly resolved with, again, kind professionalism. The production staff have always been kind and helpful as well as professional when I’m actually performing on the show and every little detail is always attended to.
I don’t know how you guys managed to make that happen, but I’m very grateful. It just makes life so much easier when there’s a gentle flow to everything and gentle flow aptly describes my experience with everyone there. Everyone.
Please feel free to send this out to everyone there to let them know of my appreciation. I try to say thanks in every contact, but it’s just not enough.

Pamela Heyen's expert guest, Dr Arminta Phelps made an impression on the "Creating Your Healthy Life" listeners as they discussed the topic, "Chiropractic Is For Everyone" on the VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel. The recording of the interview on August 20, 2009 can be found here.Pam- I had such a blast doing the show!! Chiropractic is my passion in life. I believe it can make the deaf hear, the lame walk, and the blind see!! It is my calling in life to spread this message and give specific principled chiropractic care to as many people as possible while I live this life. The comments about the show were great!! I love opening people's eyes to the body's own ability to heal itself, from birth to the grave. If anyone has any questions please direct them towards my web site www.achievebalancechiropractic.com or have them call me at 573-442-5520 Much love and Blessings!! Dr. Arminta
Dr Arminta Phelps comments about the show:
I learned a lot today from Pam's show, for example:-
I never knew it could be used to help newborns and young children...
Thanks Pam a most informative show and thanks to Dr Arminta...
Jenny - Pembrokeshire, Wales. UK
Yes......learned a lot about what a chiropractor can do and amazed to hear that people that supposedly have heart conditions may actually have a mis-aligned spine instead!
Also nice to hear vaccinations coming in for a beating as well !
Christopher- Wales, UK
Wonderful Information! Thank you
Carolyn- Magnolia, Texas
Pamela, I find this an interesting observation what you say in that radio show:
"You don't get sick overnight (...)" as you also said you don't get cured overnight,
or something, but so that you say one does not get sick 'overnight'..., i have
to say i find this interesting to 'think' about (ha! never yet 'thought' about that).
