Where are all of the talk shows for men? For years, women have enjoyed “The View” and “The Talk” to express their perspectives on life and now they have “The Real.”
Unfortunately, males constantly find themselves without a platform to discuss issues amongst themselves and to the opposite sex, but the time has come for male voices to come to the forefront of talk shows.
Enter “Regal Roundtable,” a television show production similar to the “Hot Topics” segment of “The View,” dedicated to issues affecting men of all ages, colors and creeds, hosted and executive produced by Todd A. Smith, publisher of Regal Magazine (RegalMag.com), the online magazine honoring our royal heritage.
The show consists of three participants; two permanent panelists with different points of view and one special guest panelist per episode, in addition to Smith, the host. Topics range from politics, relationships, sports, social issues, entertainment, health and religion in this 30 minute talk show. Also, periodically women are invited to the roundtable discussion for our “Battle of the Sexes” episodes on relationships. Smith describes the show as “sophisticated barbershop conversation” because like at a barbershop there is always good conversation, and no topic is off limits.
Guests on the original local version of “Regal Roundtable” included comedian and radio personality Marcus D. Wiley (“Yolanda Adams Morning Show”), Houston community activist Quannel X, playwright Renee Rivon (Je’Caryous Johnson’s “Marriage Material”), country singer Mike Stites and former Houston City Council member Jew Don Boney.
Regular panelists for the national launch of “Regal Roundtable” are comedian Juan Villareal and Stites.
The ultimate goal of “Regal Roundtable” was always to be a nationally distributed talk show and that dream has become a reality thanks to Fun TV. Fun TV is a video on demand channel distributed nationally via DISH, Hopper, Comcast, Samsung smart TVs, online and Verizon FIOS.
The video on demand platform is perfect for a male talk show because many men work during the day, help with the kids at night and watch sports on the weekend. However, if we can watch a male talk show on our own time, we will definitely welcome a different perspective to the world of talk shows.
It is RMG’s plan to offer classy, informative and cutting edge productions that provide an alternative to the status quo in today’s arena of mass communication.
