I’m Bert Weiss.
Here’s the short version: I’ve worked at every level in broadcasting. I started as a teen research assistant. Snuck my way onto the radio. I’ve been a phone screener. I’ve been a producer. I’ve been an executive producer. I’ve been a barely heard sidekick, a co-host and, now, the proud host of (what I consider) the most fun, diverse, personality driven morning show in the country; The Bert Show.
I manipulated my way into getting a live shift on a radio station two decades ago and I still remember the thrill of being behind that live mic for the first time. It’s downright intoxicating to be heard, to have a strong opinion, to have a unique voice. There’s nothing more satisfying than believing in yourself, starting from scratch and having an audience respect you and grow with you.
The elements of a great podcast are no different than what made my syndicated morning radio show successful for over 20 years and the top 5 most downloaded radio podcasts in the country. We get over 2 million downloads a month. That success was built on content and delivery. Period. I was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame in 2020. Every step along the way, I’ve constructed and programmed personality driven morning shows. The kind of programming experience that gives you security and allows you to be the most creative, unique voice you can be. Working with me is different because I understand the challenges, the struggles and the uniqueness of being creative and a performer.
