Yesterday, the critically acclaimed and award-winning live-streamed podcasted program known as the DMVDaily Radio Show returned to the internet for their third season. And while the first episode was marred by technical difficulties, they were still able to interview their guest – former Baltimore City Mayor Sheila Dixon.
Hosted by Hassan #MrPolitics Giordano, the cast and production crew have changed significantly from the previous seasons, as former co-host Ivan Bates, Esq. has decided not to return as a regular co-host due to his large and bustling legal career. The other co-host, Mark McLaurin, is due to appear in selected programs, while the show’s executive producer Jason Rodriguez has been replaced by former radio producer Sean Stinnett.
However, viewers yesterday witnessed Giordano hosting and producing the show due to being the only person in-studio; and then found himself scrambling to bring the program up online due to internet issues at the show’s new studio locations in the heart of Sandtown. “Things happen, but the show must go on,” Giordano told fans who tuned in to see the interview with Mayor Dixon. “I was able to address the problems after the show, so we are ready to come back with the same quality programming as before, during our first two seasons.”
And while the show was once a daily program, found live on the group’s website, www.dmvdaily.news, as well as on Facebook, Periscope and YouTube Monday – Friday from 5:00-6:30 p.m.; they have decided to scale it back this season, appearing live on Mondays and Wednesdays while having pre-recorded or podcasted programs air on Tuesdays and Fridays. Thursdays will be their one day off, as they have another program airing that day during their usual time slot, hosted by local community leader Archie Williams. Friday shows will likely be aimed at airing the one-on-one interviews Giordano has with local candidates running for office in the 2020 elections, as the DMVDaily Media Group brings back their popular ValueMyVote series.
“We found that the five days a week programming was killing us, so this season we plan to bring you quality programming, both live as well as podcasted,” says Giordano. “We want to be able to pace ourselves, given that we all have full-time jobs outside of the show, and we still need to do other things such as scheduled interviews with the candidates as we look to revamp the popular political program, ValueMyVote2020.”
This season viewers will be able to tune-in to live interviews and discussions related to breaking news, as well as watch podcasted shows that will be recorded a day or two prior so it won’t be stale. And on Fridays they can catch a glimpse at the candidates vying for their vote during next year’s election, both live-streamed where they can ask the candidates questions of their own, as well as podcasted programs they may have missed.
So make sure to tune-in to the group’s Facebook page @DMVDailyNews for updated show times and scheduled guests, or go to their website www.dmvdaily.news for all the latest shows and interviews. Tomorrow, the show plans to air the show at a special 2:00 p.m. time, as Hassan plans to speak with attorney and N.Y. Times Best Selling Author, Rabia Chaudry, live from New York, about the latest events surrounding the Adnan Syed case.
And next week, they will have a special live-streamed Tuesday show airing at 2:00 p.m. as well, as Hassan sits down one-on-one with Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot, to discuss the latest updates from the state’s chief fiscal officer, as well as his quest to become Maryland’s next Governor.
