On the Path Productions -- Is Traditional Talk Radio Good for What Ails America?

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 24, 2009) - From A to Z, abortion to zygote, traditional talk radio isn't part of America's healthcare solution. In fact, it may just be part of the problem, according to Christopher Springmann, Executive Producer of the daily and weekly Life Love & Health and Body Language programs.

"Traditional talk radio beats up on the children of illegal immigrants receiving healthcare, death row prisoners needing liver transplants, the 'creeping socialism' of universal healthcare and the single payer model, and then there's the poor OctoMom," said Springmann. "It's time to inform the discussion about what's right with healthcare in America and what needs to be done to solve our challenges. Let's create more light than heat!"

On the Path Productions LLC, the parent company of Life Love & Health (LLH) and Body Language, has rolled out a series of broadcast programs on terrestrial, satellite and Internet platforms to answer that need.

"We just did our first live show from the 29th Annual Medical Communications Conference, presented by the American Medical Association, a milestone in our history," said Springmann, who co-hosted the broadcast with Teresa Knight, MD, FACOG (an Ob/Gyn). They used a Comrex Access portable IP Codec to connect with the HealthRadio.net technical operations center in Florida for the one-hour program.

Guests included "Mommy Calls" author and pediatrician Tanya Remer Altmann, MD; "Seductive Delusions" author and family physician Jill Grimes, MD; and "Crave" author Cynthia Bulik, Ph.D. The upbeat and informative program featured conversations ranging from taking care of newborns, to avoiding sexually transmitted diseases, to the dangers of binge eating and what to do about it.

"We're determined to inform the debate about health and healthcare in America -- and we've dedicated our resources to do exactly that," offered Springmann. The recent and upcoming LLH programs include interviews with Dr. Alan Trounson from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine about the changing climate for stem cell research, Dr. Timothy Gardner of the American Heart Association about workplace wellness programs, and Sandra Lee of Semi-Homemade magazine about Easter Seals' efforts on behalf of families living with autism.

Life Love & Health, America's most listened-to daily 90-second health, prevention and wellness program, reaches over 6.4 million listeners on CNN, Fox and ESPN; both satellite networks and multiple Public Radio affiliates; in-store radio in 4100+ retail locations; airline in-flight radio; online at HealthRadio.net; plus the Voice of America and American Forces Network.
