Had fun the last couple days filling in for Tonya on the Tonya Hall Show, the only talk show of its kind where the power of social media is highlighted and discussed on a worldwide basis every day.
I had some fabulous guests to discuss social media and its impact on current events and politics. Here’s a recap of both my guests and the news items I highlighted in each show.
Tuesday, August 9th – Alice Linahan, Conservative Media Consultant and founder of Voices Empower. Through Voices Empower, Alice works in the trenches of the Tea Party movement to break the reliance on the liberal media for news and information. Voices Empower shows you how to harness the power of new media to help you get your conservative message out.
