ProBoatRadio to mark milestone next week

On Tuesday, ProBoat Radio will air its 100th show at 11:30 a.m. (EDT).

The broadcast will feature “Surveyors Roundtable” with Patricia Kearns, Jonathan Klopman and Steve Knox, as well as host Barbara Jean Walsh.

To grow the listener base and give the show more exposure, Professional BoatBuilder magazine will begin publishing summaries of all new shows as part of its online presence.

“Starting with the 100th show we'll have a closer connection with www.ProBoat.com,” Walsh said. “We already offer a weekly update for new shows there, but ProBoat readers have asked for an easy way to read about past shows and listen to the recordings. Now that some of our archived shows have had 1,000 or more downloads we know what the hot topics are for our audience.”

ProBoat Radio is a Web-based show, and there are several options for tuning in. Listeners can go to http://www.ProBoatRadio.com or call (347) 637-2307 to listen to the live broadcast on the phone. They can also go to the iTunes Store and subscribe to the podcast or go to the show's website to listen to previous shows.

Another option is to become a member of ProBoat Radio.

“People who register as members can leave comments, including text, audio and video,” Walsh said. "Our hope is that we will build a community there as more people become interested in this format and want to participate.”
