Internet talk station BLOGTALKRADIO and the PENTAGON have developed shows to get the word out to staff and the general public about military activity. The first shows to air under the arrangement are "ASY LIVE," focusing on the "AMERICA SUPPORTS YOU" program, and "DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BLOGGERS ROUNDTABLE," connecting civilian bloggers with DoD figures and experts.
"We're using new media in the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE because it's allowing us to create a more customized experience for our diverse worldwide audiences," said DoD Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs ALLISON BARBER. “They can access our news and information where they want it, when they want it. BLOGTALKRADIO is one of the new media formats enabling us to provide that more personalized experience."
BLOGTALKRADIO CEO/Co-Founder ALAN LEVY added, "The PENTAGON has recognized BLOGTALKRADIO's ability to reach various targeted audiences utilizing our easy-to-use talk radio broadcasting format. It enables them to deliver prompt information to listeners regarding the War on Terror and other PENTAGON activities and programs, while also conveying the feelings and emotion of those who are affected."
