Outdoor home-improvement experts and TV regulars Dean Marsico and Derek Sterns are taking on a new medium – Internet radio – starting tonight.
The Dean & Derek Show will premiere on BlogTalkRadio from 7-9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, offering construction advice, project overviews, Q&A, special guests, and a celebration of American products and services … along with fan interaction through call-ins and instant messages.
The pair are known nationally for their two shows, Rock Solid and Indoors Out, on the cable-based DIY Network. They’ve also appeared on NBC’s Today Show and PBS’ Victory Garden, also host their own website … and actually operate a stone company, Stearns Stone Works LLC, in Weymouth, Mass.
“Everyday we’re out in the construction field designing and installing,” Sterns says. “Adding television was a natural progression of that, and now branching out to radio with The Dean & Derek Show is the perfect fit.
“We can get even closer to our fans through on-air calls so we’ll be able to really discuss the projects and products that matter most to our audience, and we’ll get to know them better at the same time. This show has been two years in the making, and we couldn’t be happier to launch and get started.”
“Our television shows, while informative and inspiring, have limits; there just isn’t enough time to get all the content we want into the show, not to mention the lack of interaction with fans,” adds Marsico. “Through radio, we can eliminate that barrier and get down to the good stuff with fans who call in. It might be a design or construction question, a funny family story, or even a favorite.
“Besides, what’s better than a talk show for two guys who love to talk?”
The Dean & Derek Show will offer new weekly episodes every Thursday at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Listeners can find the program at blogtalkradio.com/dean-and-derek-radio.
