idea thread: how to reinvent the roundtable?

How can Teddy Bart’s Roundtable and the Public Forum reinvent itself?  Format?  Funding?  Venue?  Mix of old and new media?

I’d like your thoughts.

    Teddy Bart should bring back the “Noon Show”. OK, maybe not. It was the 70′s, I grew up with him.

    Busy,
    Now weren’t you just complaining about the (lack of) quality on daytime tv when you were recently under the weather? As much as I think Teddy would improve the quality, I think his appeal is not to the out-of-work sick, lame, and lazy that are the target market of the daytime tv viewers.

    Then again, maybe there are people out there who don’t fit the daytime stereotype, and they’re just yearning for something worthwile. God knows that there’s no competition then.

  3. Busy Mom Says:

    You have a good point, Bob. Anyone coming up with quality daytime TV would be at the top of the heap these days. I’d watch Teddy in a minute if he were on and I was home. But, one loyal viewer at home during the day on occasion doesn’t make for colossal ratings, I guess. Perhaps podcasting or blogging is in his future until he comes back.

    Teddy and Karlen would be great on P.B.S. Congress is calling for more “balance”. The Round Table would be just the ticket. T.A.F.

    Preferred Teddy’s morning show as could listen to it on way into work and get something meaningful. Listened to Steve but he was becoming more like Screamin’Dean and he pampered his favorites like some certain senators. I feel they should allow call in by the morning crowd to allow them to ask questions. By time I got to email it was too late. I think there are some ways they could do a little commercialization to pay bills but not become crass.
