Steve Lehman and myself are diehard entrepreneurs, which means you jump out of the plane, then as you are falling, you check to see if the parachute is on.” — Ken Rutkowski

Business Rockstars Radio host Ken Rutkowski, was recently featured on the cover of Radio Ink Magazine, and in their article titled, "Radio's Next Rockstar." He speaks of how he got into the radio business and specifically his venture into digital radio.
Ken Rutkowski is a dot-commer from the early days. He’s one of the first broadcasters who went from radio out of a small town (Joliet, IL) to broadcasting over the Internet. He saw how big digital was going to be long before radio stations had websites worth visiting, long before social media existed, and long before anyone knew the smartphone would take over individuals' lives.
Rutkowski’s radio show, called World Tech Roundup, was one of the only shows listened to by every big deal in Silicon Valley, and his newsletter was read by tens of thousands. To have that kind of fan, one not only needs to know their stuff, one needs to know how to network. Ken Rutkowski is a master at networking, a super connector. He prefers personal telephone calls over e-mails or texts (he tries to call 50-80 people every day). And he started a group called METal, which consists of 1,600 paying members who meet regularly to talk about entrepreneurship.
And now, along with Steve Lehman, Ken Rutkowski has leveraged his two decades of networking, his Rolodex of CEOs, and his knowledge of the digital space into a syndicated talk show called Business Rockstars. The show focuses on the 30 million aspiring entrepreneurs. The show is heard live weekdays from 10 a.m.-noon (PST), it’s streamed over the Internet at http://www.BusinessRockstarsLive.com, iTunes, Stitcher, and iHeartRadio, and it can even be seen on YouTube. Already Business Rockstars has 450,000 Twitter followers (@bizrockstars) and more than 183,000 Facebook fans, has reached almost a million Google Plus profile views, and is a rising star on Linkedin.
Ken Rutkowski states, “Steve Lehman and myself are diehard entrepreneurs, which means you jump out of the plane, then as you are falling, you check to see if the parachute is on. That’s what entrepreneurs are. There are so many entrepreneurs out there, but they feel so alone. We wanted to create a place for them.”
Business Rockstars is a show that focuses on rock star CEOs, entrepreneurs, and starting, growing, and funding a business. Their target is the “wantrepreneur.” There are 30 million “wantrepreneurs” in the United States. They have created a show in one of the hottest sectors in the world right now, entrepreneurship.
Business Rockstars is the only daily two-hour national show that focuses on entrepreneurship in an entertaining, fast-paced, exciting format.
“We drive the audience, and we enable the audience through social interaction, through our website, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. We create an interactive platform with our listeners that we think adds an entirely unique dimension to this radio show,” says Steve Lehman.
