Here is an excerpt of the article written by Chris Wetterich:
Nathan Ivey, a former talk show host at the now-defunct 1230 WDBZ-AM “The Buzz,” is starting his own podcast called Nathan Ivey Online” and hopes to recapture the audience that followed him at what was Cincinnati’s only urban news and talk station
Darryl Parks, veteran of talk radio in Cincinnati, wrote about The Nathan Ivey Show in a very heartfelt piece on his blog.
Here is an excerpt of the piece written about Nathan Ivey and the state of black radio stations:
“Curious. Connected. Comical. Culturally astute. A communicator with great instincts in getting the most out of topics and callers, callers which he really didn’t need. Never belittling. Always respectful. Playfully sarcastic. And with silence or a single word said with a tiny twinkle in his voice, made you laugh out loud at the lunacy that will pass for topics, controversy and some callers on talk radio today. He spoke often about is life and his family and his struggles as a husband and father to his kids. He humanized himself and was genuine and real.”
Darryl writes more about Nathan:
“His show was appointment listening. Part pop entertainment, culture, hip hop, sports and politics from a black perspective all held together by his strong advocacy for the community he served. Nathan embodies everything that will make the successful radio talk host of the future – if this format is to survive.
He’d play off genders, respecting women and dragging out the misogynist views of male callers.
One of the funniest and most memorable things I had ever heard on the radio came on Nathan Ivey’s show.”
Cincinnati Magazine featured The Nathan Ivey Show in an article titled “The Top 5 Podcasts in Cincinnati” in thier June online edition.
