SportsTalk at the PositivePub creates an empowering message for sports fans and non-sports fans alike. We examine sports from a positive, historical, and philosophical perspective. It’s a show that will be caller and interview driven. There will be no negative rants or personal attacks. It provides an outlet for you to express your passion, opinions, and solutions through constructive dialogue. We want to create a healthy conversation through the means of internet radio, social networking, and other technological aspects of an ever changing medium. The show will also provide a news making component. This will not be a show that is slanted or is misrepresented. This program will also promote the positive values of athletes through their foundations and faith based community initiatives.
