Name John C. Snipes
About I'm a former print journalist, and have been an independent film actor for 8 years. My desire to host a radio talk show stems from my desire to fuse these two interests into a single medium. My fascination with radio goes back to my childhood. Recently, I created a fictitious paranormal radio show called 'NightWire' for a film I am working on.

One night it occurred to me that I could do this for real, so I have done extensive research, and am calling upon my experience in ADR voice-overs, my journalistic training, and my passion for performing to bring this show into the realm of reality.

NightWire is a Q & A talk radio show not unlike Coast-to-Coast with George Noory. I was formerly a long-time fan of Art Bell, who I consider to be an influence. My proposed show differs in that guests must prove some legitimate connection with the subject we would explore on air. We will take the element of provable fact, and allow the guest to give us his or her inside "scoop" on topics that our listening audience would like to have expounded upon or revealed.
