Ryan Forbes – Portfolio – April 2017

website1  website2

Making my “triumphant” return to the Hosting business with Riot Radio after a 3-year hiatus.  I quickly realized that being in a crawl space for hours on end isn’t exactly my dream job. I’m here to listen to myself talk, and to turn bringing up indie music that no one has ever heard of into a career, to make a few bucks, and to blow it all on tattoos. If you see a vaguely-hipster looking kid with a band shirt on, who just happens to be at a gluten free establishment? Odds are you’ve got the right guy.

Forget the unbiased, middle aged, politically correct news anchors. Forget the mainstream, depressing news that you’ve already heard from some other network. We’re not going to talk about Trump’s new federal budget, but be damn sure that we’ll be bringing up his weird handshake. We won’t be looking at the most recent development in Kim Kardashian’s robbery, but we’ll dive right into the making of the world’s first Smart Condom. Forget the news they think you’ll want to hear, and come listen to the news you wish that they were allowed to say.

Some of my articles and videos that I produced through my experience at Q104 – Today’s Hottest Music,  and their website Kenoraonline

(Due to the archival system of Kenoraonline and Q104, the vast majority of articles I wrote and posted on the site from March 2013 through November 2013, have been extremely difficult to find.)
