For years, we’ve been told that the web is important but it was really not a money maker for most of us using it.

I’ll be concentrating on media as a partner to my talk show on KDKA radio(remember radio?)as well as the arts, acting, theatre, film and TV as usual but I also feel it necessary to add and focus a bit on politics and social awareness as citizens.
