NEW YORK, NEW YORK – (November 3, 2009) – Each year, the fast-food industry spends billions of dollars advertising on television, radio and in print, among other methods.
According to a November 3, 2009 press release, Vegetarianism Gets a Voice on Progressive Radio Network, "Because of this, they often tie the hands of media outlets when it comes to speaking out against the negatives that accompany each cheap combo meal they push. Now there is a radio program that is not afraid to discuss such issues, and more. The Progressive Radio Network (PRN) has given the vegetarian movement a voice, by offering a weekly show all about vegetarianism."
According to the media release, Vegetarianism Gets a Voice on Progressive Radio Network, “Vegetarianism is a forward-thinking idea, and a lot of media outlets cannot even talk about it because they are afraid they will offend their advertisers,” explains Gary Null, an award-winning talk show host, notable author and the founder of PRN. “At PRN, we proudly give vegetarianism a voice because we know that people are starving for this information and a chance to talk about the issues.”
The show, called “It’s All About Food,” airs each Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. EST and can be accessed online at www.progressiveradionetwork.com. Hosted by Caryn Hartglass, who is the executive director of EarthSave International, the show is all about vegetarianism and covers a wide range of vegetarian issues, including raw foods, overall wellness, healthy school lunches, factory farming, global warming, and dairy-free desserts.
The show also interviews special vegetarian-related guests, including such previous guests as Allison Rivers Samson of Allison’s Gourmet, and Ruby Roth of the new children’s book “That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals” (North Atlantic Books, May 2009).
Hartglass, who has worked in different ways over the years to promote a plant-based diet, has been a vegetarian for over 35 years. She first became a vegetarian as a child because she found it unnecessary to be a part of such a cruel industry. Today, she takes her mission of promoting vegetarianism to the air waves, where no related topic is off limits.
PRN also offers shows that cover natural living, the environment, autism, cultural affairs, women’s health, mindful living, the economy, animals and pets, and progressive politics. Because they are supported by listeners, they are not limited in their speech when it comes to controversial topics.
“When you take a look at the store shelves in grocery stores around the country, it is clear that vegetarianism is here to stay,” adds Null. “Whether people choose vegetarian meals out of compassion for the animals, for a cleaner planet, or for their own health, our show can provide a platform for discussing it, without having to worry about companies pulling their advertisements.” Listeners can listen to PRN and find a list of all shows, hosts, and events on the site.
