Greetings dear Nurse Talk friends and family
Well it happened! O.K. sort of. We had the big reveal last Saturday and took our show to a new level (some may dispute that). Our friends at Talk Stream Network hosted Nurse Talk for a live stream broadcast of our show. It was streaming 101 on our part but we did it and had great fun. Technology is amazing and this new platform allows for social networking and live chat interaction with our listeners, increases diverse sponsorship and advertising opportunities at very reasonable rates—and facilitates up to the minute delivery of our own brand of healthcare news and entertainment.
And visit our new website at www.nursetalksite.com –and while you’re there– if you are feeling benevolent –check out the opportunity to sponsor our show. It’s very simple and it really helps us continue our broadcasts. We’re just like the politicians—always looking for that next donor. All kidding aside we would love it if you just take a minute and check it out at http://www.nursetalksite.com/book-now/. Sponsor an hour of Nurse Talk for $200, or a segment for $75. Wish someone a Happy Birthday, or promote your favorite charity or your business.
COMING UP on Nurse Talk this Saturday is our 4th annual “Fall Flu Fashion “ show—on the catwalk! Although most of us don’t run with the crowd that attends the Annual Fall Fashion Week in New York City, it does seem somewhat exciting and it certainly highlights all of the beautiful fall fashions and—SADLY—the fact that eating disorders are alive and well in the fashion industry. Well, just because we are boring old nurses doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun and run with the “it” people.
So check it out at www.nursetalksite.com (audio or livestream)
