I wanted to reach out directly with some news.
Last Friday, the decision was made to replace my Sunday radio show in the WSB-AM lineup. I have hosted the Ilyce Glink: Rebuilding America One House at a Time show for the past 15 years, and have enjoyed every one of the some 780 Sundays we have spent together.
I know that the ending of my Sunday show has made many of you unhappy. And, you should feel free to express that by writing or calling our Program Director, Pete Spriggs. (WSB always likes to hear from its listeners, whether they’re happy or upset!)
But by reclaiming my Sundays, I get to spend a little more time with my husband and co-columnist, Sam Tamkin (the world’s best real estate attorney) and my son, Michael, who will be leaving for college and plays in volleyball tournaments over the weekend. (His big brother Alex is happily ensconced in college already.)
It also gives me an opportunity to focus on some of the new and cool things I’m doing in the world of media. (And you know me, I’m all about new and cool ways to give you the best real estate, investing and financial information available.)
For example, we’ve been promoting my new show Big Money Real Estate on Witnation.com. Every day, Monday through Friday, we’ve got a new BMRE Daily Update, where I interview top thought leaders, economists, and real estate investors so you know what to buy, where to invest, and how to negotiate the best deals.
In addition, we’re putting up new Real Estate Minutes on my YouTube.com/expertrealestatetips channel every day as well.
We’re about to launch a new IlyceGlink.com website, and are working on a really interesting initiative for next year, called Best Money Moves, which will provide you with clear and compelling information to help you make sense of your financial life.
We’re also looking at having more podcasts where you can participate – because when it comes down to it, my favorite part about being on the radio on Sundays was our ongoing conversation: Talking about the economy, helping solve life’s big and little problems, and just hanging out for a couple of hours, trying to make sense of the world.
So, trust me when I tell you we’re working on ways to recreate that time. And, maybe it’ll be on Sundays or maybe it’ll be another night during the week. In the meantime, I’m not going anywhere. WSB has asked me to stay on board and work with them to bring this information to you in other forms. I’ll be sitting down with WSB on Tuesday, Feb. 3, to begin the discussion about what’s next.
Until then, stay in touch! Visit me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, subscribe to my YouTube channel and watch out for Thursday’s e-mail. If you want to reach me directly you can reply to this e-mail or reach me at email@example.com.
