According to Gary Alan, founder and president of TalentWatch, the reason “On the Horizon” has stood the test of time is due to the show’s personality. “I think John’s show is so entertaining. He and his wife, Elly, do such a great job. I personally enjoy their playful bantering. They’ve got such great chemistry. I can tell you from talking with John that behind the humor is a burning desire to deliver the best undiscovered artists from around the globe.”
“John and I believe it’s just a matter of time before music fans follow our lead. Between his listeners and our site, we plan on changing the way music artists are discovered. It’s time music fans decide who deserves to be played.”
“I’m very excited about the direction TalentWatch has taken,” says John Anderson. “In the 9 years I’ve hosted “On the Horizon,” I’ve yet to come across a site like this. We all know about myspace, youtube, and facebook. It’s nearly impossible to sift through all that clutter to find legitimate talent on those sites. TalentWatch solved that problem with its rating system. The best artists get the most exposure. I also appreciate that every artist uploads a personal video, where they tell their story. They’re actually teaching artists how to market themselves more effectively. With their approach you receive a more honest view of the artists themselves. I think TalentWatch is a gold mine for independent music artists.”
Starting from one station in 2001, “On the Horizon” has expanded to five different countries, on 21 different radio stations, with approximately seven million listeners. They hope to be heard around the world by 2015. The hour long show, which helps promote undiscovered music artists, can be heard on http://www.theothnetwork.com or at http://www.onthehorizon.podomatic.com.
