Content Black Woman Show #1 on BlogTalkRadio.com

Tech Savvy African American Blogger Takes to Internet Airwaves and Immediately Garners Mainstream Credibility, Buzz and a Loyal Following Within Weeks

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 5, 2008) - After only four outings since its January launch, the hugely popular Internet radio program, The Content Black Woman Show (CBW), has nabbed the #1 spot for current events programming on BlogTalkRadio.com. One of the few successful mainstream or Internet radio talk shows with an African American female at the helm, the program was featured last week in an Associated Press article discussing the historic 2008 presidential race between Illinois Senator Barack Obama and New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Hosted by 3BAAS Media proprietor and blogger Valencia Roner, the online show provides news, opinions and insights from a "content black woman's" perspective. Its zenith rise of nearly 20,000 downloads per week has made many take note of this seemingly overnight web sensation.

"These are exciting times in our nation's history," said Roner, who was a featured panelist at the 2007 BlogHer Conference. "With white men ruling talk radio for so long, I think the success of the show demonstrates that the market is hungry for a more diverse point of view. My goal is to be first in class among the cadre of individuals providing a new voice. BlogTalkRadio is allowing me the opportunity to do this and I couldn't be more pleased."

With the exponential growth of the Internet by way of YouTube, MySpace, and other social networking sites, BlogTalkRadio tops the ranks of those providing expansive Web 2.0 audio programming. An interactive medium allowing users to connect globally simply through their phone and a computer, in less than 16 months, the upwardly trending online network has registered more than 7,500 hosts. Many of these hosts are creating live call-in shows with unlimited participants. At the end of these programs, users can subsequently repackage and archive shows for future subscriber podcasts without software downloads or MP3 technology.

The only African American hosted and produced show in BlogTalkRadio.com's top 5 most popular shows out of some 51,000 currently featured, CBW is clearly meeting a demand for strong advertiser-supported content appealing to woman in general, and high-end black consumers in particular.

Having specialized in marketing and public relations for over 15 years, Roner should know. The Los Angeles based entrepreneur and mother began the popular blog Why Black Women Are Angry, with the intent of dispelling the less than favorable stereotype of black women as being angry, focusing instead on their inner radiance, physical beauty and emotional state of contentment.

Currently, Why Black Women Are Angry is ranked #1 for the search terms "black women" in Google's search engine. The blog was also recognized by Ebony/Jet.com as one of the Ten Most Important Blog Posts for 2007 for Roner's in-depth coverage of Prophetess Juanita Bynum and the controversy surrounding the popular ecumenical leader's pending divorce and criminal case involving estranged husband Bishop Thomas Weeks.

On Wednesday February 6, 2008, Roner will feature guest co-host former Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kevin Ross for a special Super Tuesday Post Election Edition of the program. The lively, no-holds bar discussion from a black perspective on the 2008 Presidential Race will kick-off at 9 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. CST and 6 p.m. PST.
