Beginning March 18, DNR STUDIOS presents a new twice-weekly hour-long LIVE radio show hosted by long-time broadcaster and social media personality Laura Heywood (@BroadwayGirlNYC).
Available live exclusively on www.DNRstudios.com/laura, Laura Heywood Interviews airs LIVE Mondays and Wednesday from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM Eastern. Following one week of exclusive on-demand access for subscribers, each episode will be available as a free Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify and everywhere else podcasts are found.
Laura Heywood Interviews embodies Laura’s signature intersection of contagious enthusiasm and deep research. The launch marks ten years since the first tweet Laura posted as her formerly anonymous online alter-ego, @BroadwayGirlNYC (50k followers across Twitter, Instagram, YouTube & Facebook).
The show will feature visits from celebrity newsmakers, tastemakers and changemakers from both inside and beyond the world of theatre; phone calls with listeners and contests available only to those listening live; and interviews from Laura’s extensive archive, consolidated and combined to celebrate current events and timely themes.
Episode 1, “Laura Heywood Interviews… Laura Heywood” will serve as an introduction to “the whole Laura Heywood,” designed for new listeners as well as the tens of thousands of devotees who know her primarily as “Broadway’s most influential fan” (CBS This Morning).
While best known for her long-form interviews with over 150 Broadway stars on AOL’s Build Series, CBS, Sirius XM, and her own social media channels, Laura is also an accomplished sports talk personality (San Francisco Giants); a radio DJ in formats as diverse as hip-hop, light rock, show tunes, and classic rock; a commercial actor (Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty), print model (Nintendo, TIME Magazine, Ameliora) and voice over actor (Grand Theft Auto series, Macy’s, Volvo); a world traveler; and a dedicated fitness & personal growth devotee. She is also an activist, focused particularly on arts education in elementary schools.
Episode 2, “Laura Heywood Interviews… Mandy Gonzalez,” will air live on Wednesday March 20, with a focus on fearlessness as it relates to the actress and singer’s Broadway career, music, activism, family life and spirit.
Segments on the show will include YES, AND… which explores a surprising feature of each guest’s background, training, or personal interest; TWEETS & SASS, a look into the social media posts that have Laura and her guests “all atwitter”; and JUST ‘CAUSE, a segment dedicated to a charity or non-profit organization chosen by that day’s guest.
Subscriptions to Laura Heywood Interviews include over 100 hours of additional content from DNR Studios, including Derek & Romaine, The Taylor Strecker Show, I Love My Wife, Naughty but Nice with Rob Shuter, and Happy Campers with Matthew Camp.
