Positive Radio Exec Linda Mackenzie
As a Great Women of the 21st Century in Radio Broadcasting
Manhattan Beach, CA, July 12, 2006...CHSR HealthyLife.Net - All Positive
Talk & Music Radio, found at www.healthylife.net, announced today
that it's Founder and General Manager, Linda Mackenzie, has received recognition
as ABI's Great Women of the 21st Century in Radio Broadcasting.
Well known as a telecom engineer, award-winning author, radio, TV and
film personality, Linda is a seasoned mainstay of entrepreneurial spirit.
Believing that people wanted positive media alternatives to traditional
negative and controversial media, Linda started her 24/7 Internet radio
station, HealthyLife.Net in 2002.
"Negative Media is so unnecessary. All it does is breed fear, which
results in a negative impact on people and their lives. Looking at things
half full instead of half empty isn't a Pollyanna attitude, it's just
a matter of perspective." states Mackenzie, "My radio station
helps people feel good every day. That gives me great joy and to be recognized
for my work is very gratifying."
Since 2002 the station's listeners have grown from 200+ to over 920,000
in 65 countries - by word of mouth alone. HealthyLife.Net's strong and
broad appeal is credited to the diverse and eclectic array of over 40
radio hosts; all well-known and respected personalities, like mind-body
medicine Dr. Bernie Siegel, political evolutionary Barbara Marx Hubbard,
Golden Globe Winner Sally Kirkland and best selling authors Guy Finley
and Lynn Andrews.
But Mackenzie fought a hard road of negativity to get where she is today.
Financially depleted from a business partnership, she borrowed $3,000.,
and then sold her house, where she resided for 31 years, to finance the
start-up of her dream.
Being a woman pioneer in Internet radio and getting traditional media
to recognize the need for positive programs was no picnic either. Her
radio station became a member of NAB (National Association of Broadcasters)
where she successfully enhanced media awareness. Seeing success, competitors
with deeper pockets jumped on the band wagon vying for her audience, stole
her ideas and formats as they tried to emulate her station. Obtaining
commercial ads to fund the station is an ongoing challenge since Internet
radio provides actual audience counts but advertisers still have the perception
of needing 3rd party extrapolated ratings.
Believing in conscious business, without need of competition, Mackenzie
met each challenge with perseverance, integrity, ingenuity and a positive
attitude. Consequently, her loyal audience stays with her and HealthyLife.Net
continues to amass global listeners who want a positive media alternative.
