Chalk Media announced today the launch of a new national television program titled Dave Chalk Connected Live. Utilizing the experience and knowledge of hosts Dave Chalk and Mike Agerbo, Dave Chalk Connected Live will offer more than 10 million viewers nationwide an interactive program dedicated to simplifying the world of technology.
In the new show, the nationally recognized hosts use an engaging and entertaining approach to demonstrate how to use technology in real-life situations. In addition to being the only show of its kind to feature interactive chats through email, live telephone calls, and soon-to-be-launched text messaging, Chalk and Agerbo will invite industry experts into the studio to share technological expertise and work with technology in the field.
"Dave Chalk Connected Live is more than a traditional technology program, it is a lifestyle show. It's about helping people understand and embrace technology to enjoy the maximum benefits it can afford," says Dave Chalk, Founder and Director of Chalk Media and the host of the show. "Our hands-on demonstrations, coupled with the interaction with our viewers, will provide a powerful method to reinforce these tangible benefits."
