Vegas Video Network Available on Google Currents

One of my favorite discoveries over the holidays was Google Currents, which delivers beautiful magazine-like editions of many of your favorite content provides to your tablet and smartphone. I use it to read a Forbes, Fast Company, cnet, Edgadget, TechCrunch, Adnroid Central, Entrepreneur, Lifehacker and Men’s Health (among others). It’s available for iOS and Android devices and it is of my new "go-to" programs.

While using it, I wondered what it would take to be able to view VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK content within Google Currents. After some investigating, I found out it could be done. And. . .

. . .IT HAS BEEN DONE.

It’s as if we created an Android or iOS application for VVN.  If you’d like a super-easy way to get VVN content on your smartphone, tablet, or iPad, take these two easy steps:

  1. Download Google Current
  2. Add the Vegas Video Network

It’s really simple.

As we are a new content provider, you won’t be able to find us in their catalog until we hit a certain number of subscribers (which isn’t clearly defined).  But if a couple hundred of you do subscribe, we will hit their first hurdle; surfacing in their search results.

Don’t Miss This Friday’s Vegas Video Network Holiday Special



One of the coolest things about be a part of the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK is the number of talented people we’ve had appear on our shows. And even better than that, the vast majority of these folks are both talented AND nice. . .a pretty groovy combo.

I thought it would be very cool to bring many of these people together and, as a gift to our viewers (and their fans), deliver a kind of musical “thank you” to all. With the help of Kelly Clinton (Host of Talktails) and Jerry Jones (groovy man-about-town), I think we’ve come up with a way to do just that.

HOSTED BY TALKTAIL’S KELLY CLINTON-HOLMES, the broadcast will stream LIVE on the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK website. Along with songs selected by our musical guests, we will employ another first. . .live song requests from our live chat audience. All will be available at http://VegasVideoNetwork.com/LIVE.

Kelly Clinton Nominated for 2012 BroadwayWorld Award

Kelly Clinton on Talktails

We just learned that our very own Kelly Clinton has been nominated for BEST COMEDIAN (FEMALE) at the 2012 BroadwayWorld Las Vegas Awards.  This is for her work on Talktails!

As one of the funniest people I’ve met, Kelly is a great choice for this award.  Because this is richly deserved, please take about 5 minutes and vote for Kelly.  (The process is a bit of a hassle, but Kelly’s worth it. I promise.) She’s up against Rita Rudner and Carla Rae.  I’m sure they are both nice people, but are they a “kaleidoscope of talent”?!?!?

I think not!

Go here and vote for Kelly today!
