Talk radio is a radio format that discusses current issues and consists almost entirely of original spoken content rather than external music. Talk radio usually includes an element of listener participation, usually by broadcasting live conversations between the host and listeners who "ring in" the show. The shows are also organized into segments, each separated by a break for commercials, in which music can be played. Varieties of talk radio include conservative talk, hot talk, liberal talk (increasingly known as progressive talk), and sports talk. If you like this format, choose and listen to Talk Radio Online.
