Social Justice Activist and Veteran Radio Host Mark Thompson Launches New Daily Show and Podcast with DNR Studios and DCP Entertainment
Rev. Mark Thompson to extend "Make It Plain" programming to a live audience and on-demand podcast
By: Foote Communications
Rev. Thompson, who has spent nearly three decades on radio and as a TV commentator, says his new partnership with DNR and DCP is his own "declaration of independence."
"I was a free-agent and my friends at DNR and DCP called me and said to come on over to be free to do the show I need to do," says Rev. Thompson. He adds, "As election 2020 approaches, I want to make sure MIP remains the resource for listeners and voters it has always been."
Most of the 2020 Democratic candidates for President have already appeared on MIP to get their message out to Americans, including a new interview with Mayor Pete Buttigieg where he discusses the police shooting investigation in his city of South Bend, Indiana; his Frederick Douglass and Walker-Lewis Plans; being called the 'gay Obama'; and how "Black women are bearing the burden of the inequities in our justice system."
Beginning today, Thompson's daily "Make It Plain with Rev. Mark Thompson" LIVE show will air exclusively every weekday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. EST on dnrstudios.com/
Subscribers can hear Make It Plain virtually anywhere they play music or podcasts and subscribing is easy. Shows will also be available On Demand immediately following that day's broadcast. Listeners can choose a Make It Plain subscription for just $6.95/month or more than 120 hours of programming with the DNR Plus multi show subscription that includes "Make It Plain" and other daily and weekly shows in the DNR Studios network for just $12.95/month. Both options are available now at DNRStudios.com/
Beginning July 19th, "The Make it Plain with Rev. Mark Thompson" PODCAST will be available as a free series on Acast, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and everywhere else podcasts are found. There will be new episodes every Tuesday and Friday.
The live daily show will feature short timely interviews with newsmakers and the twice weekly podcast will have more in-depth, long-form, timeless interviews, Rev. Thompson explains.
Chris Colbert, CEO of DCP Entertainment, said, "Mark has always been at the forefront of fighting for change – and now, we're excited to be part of his move into podcasting, which allows him to reach an even larger audience."
Romaine Patterson, co-founder of DNR Studios, says, "Derek and I are thrilled to welcome our friend and fellow broadcaster Rev. Mark Thompson to DNR Studios. We created DNR Studios to provide a platform for dynamic and unique voices to engage with their audiences in powerful and meaningful ways and there isn't anyone who fits the bill better than Mark."
