Bios:
Whether you realize it or not, you know Jordan Rich. Or at least, you know his voice. Jordan’s voice has been a ubiquitous and friendly presence on Boston airwaves since 1978, as a dynamic radio personality and as a voiceover artist featured in countless radio and TV commercials. For years, Jordan kept listeners company over their coffee and commute as morning drive host for such Boston stations as WRKO and WSSH-FM. For 20 years Jordan entertained the late-night crowd, hosting a regular talk show on WBZ AM 1030. Chart Productions was created in 1978, the brainchild of Jordan Rich and Ken Carberry—two college buddies with a passion for broadcasting and a vision for the future. Both have been able to apply their considerable talents and skills to create a unique type of production studio. http://chartproductions.com
Dan Thibeault has worked as a sound engineer, classroom teacher, educational consultant and business development manager. He is the owner of Fast Twitch Media, which specializes in content marketing and media host management for podcasters. From recording, artwork and social media design, to configuring platforms for uploading content to major podcast directories, Fast Twitch Media assists independent content creators in getting their podcasts published in Apple Podcasts, Googleplay, Stitcher, TuneIn, Spotify and Android platforms.
