Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2008
Spencer Kobren's 'The Bald Truth', the weekly health talk radio program focusing on hair loss, overtook the number one slot for highest rated radio program of the day on Stickam.com for the past two Sundays, March 20 and April 6, 2008. The program is consistently ranked in the top five weekly broadcasts and is one of Stickam.com's all-time top ten shows.
Hosted by hair loss consumer/patient advocate, Spencer Kobren, The Bald Truth is the official weekly broadcast for The American Hair Loss Association. Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth first gained national recognition in the late nineties when it debuted on WABC radio in New York. It remains the only national radio program on the airwaves that focuses on the emotional effects and cultural difficulties that hair loss sufferers face.
Broadcasting live from WestwoodOne radio in Los Angeles, Kobren's on-air support group speaks to men and women who are dealing with hair loss and helps them safely navigate through the $3.5 billion dollar hair loss industry.
Kobren's on-air hook "SEX, LIFE and HAIR LOSS, America's #1 Reality Radio Show for Men" has made this taboo subject more approachable for young hair loss sufferers and has proven to program directors across the country that hair loss hits home with the most powerful demographic in radio, males in the 18-34 year-old age range.
The weekly show airs on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. EST on XM Radio 152 and on Stickam.com and it has been nationally syndicated for ten years.
Despite the fact that The Bald Truth only airs for two hours each week, it slammed past heavy hitters whose shows broadcast daily. With a young audience (Stickam.com's average visitor is just 23 years old), the ranking demonstrates how prevalent an issue hair loss is, especially among young adults.
"Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth is one of our most popular shows despite Stickam's youthful demographics. It's simply amazing to see 40,000 viewers flock to watch his weekly show," said Paul Ku of Stickam.com.
Social networking sites have created a new meeting place on the Internet where the public can gather and share news and information and rate their favorite websites, radio and TV shows, films, music, and books. According to The Bald Truth host Spencer Kobren, "Companies like Stickam.com have set the stage for broadcasters and advertisers to interact with their audience in remarkably efficient and effective ways. The future of broadcasting is here and I'm thrilled that The Bald Truth has been embraced in such a huge way."
