Thank you for stopping by. This week, we celebrate our 8th Anniversary. It was August 16, 2001 that we broadcast our first radio show on WSRadio.com. Within 6 months we were broadcasting on conventional radio and, by that time, we were doing weekly segments on NBC in Burbank, California for the Los Angeles audiences. Little by little, we have worked on radio reach, distribution, and sponsorship, but our concentration on content and credibility is king. We connect our audiences to the experts in a personal, yet professional, manner, giving our listeners and visitors a close and up-front view of trends, technology, destinations and the news of travel, tourism and lifestyle.

This week, San Diego will be welcoming over 6,000 delegates here for the National Business Travel Association (NBTA) International Convention and Exposition. We will be bringing you more information on the results of the Exposition. In the meantime, if you are in the area or you would like to attend, there is still time to register and, in fact, you can save $100 by using our promotional code: TTM. Hope you can join us or stay tuned for more information on radio and the Web.
