How We Began...
Founding her own Internet station was only a dream for Lillian S. Cauldwell when she was associated with Global Talk Radio and Artist First Radio. She wanted to do Internet talk radio better, proving that a network could be a viable and competitive force. It should educate, enlighten and entertain. On December 5, 2006 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, she seized that opportunity and created PWRTalk. Her motto and that of the station's: "The World On Your Terms!"
For her first interviews, she called upon her book publishing and bestselling author background to interview mid-list and unknown authors. Poets soon became part of the mix and other media-related guests wanting to promote and brand themselves.
In addition to her broadcasting skills, Lillian has a philanthropic, caring heart. Through the years, her station has promoted successful Radio-thons that help unknown charities gain recognition with the Internet listening public. A side benefit has been offering program that helps connect needy families to target doctors and medical facilities.
