Teen Empowerment Radio Producer, Cynthia Brian, Named an UnSung Hero

Teen Empowerment Radio Producer, Cynthia Brian, Honored as

UnSung Hero

Producing a successful radio broadcast is time-intensive, challenging work. The editors of Podcast Magazine chose 22 podcast and radio professionals to honor as Unsung Heroes in its March 2022 issue. Moraga’s Founder of Be the Star You Are!® charity, radio personality, coach, and the Lamorinda Weekly’s Goddess Gardener, Cynthia Brian, is among those being celebrated. Read about the Unsung Heroes:

Besides producing and hosting her weekly LIVE lifestyle broadcast, StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!®, in 2011, through her company, StarStyle® Productions, LLC, Cynthia Brian launched a broadcast, Express Yourself!™ for teens, by teens, and with teens, completely unedited and uncensored under the auspices of Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity. Both shows broadcast o the Voice America Network, the largest radio network in the world. She began by coaching five Lamorinda teens to be reporters and has now coached over fifty adolescents from across the country between the ages of 12-19 to be communicators and journalists. Cynthia produces every show, books the guests, and coaches the teens to improve their performances.

Express Yourself!™ Teen Radio is now in its eleventh year and has broadcast 620 podcasts. Now in their mid to late twenties, many of the former reporters and hosts have gone on to careers in media and all have recounted that being part of this teen radio experience was a highlight of their adolescence providing them with the tools and confidence to share their viewpoints. Cynthia believes in the voices and opinions of young people as the future of our world. Her hosts and reporters are asked to make a list of the subjects that interest them, then she finds the guests that will inspire and motivate the teens and listeners. Guests include a global roster of artists, authors, actors, celebrities, sports figures, Olympians, teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs, scientists, innovators, teens, and others making a difference. Her goal is to find permanent sponsorship and grants to keep this empowering, positive message program on the air.

Cynthia credits her team of professionals at the Voice America Network for making both programs sound and look first-rate. “After almost two decades broadcasting on the Voice America Network, we are one happy, dedicated family and I share this accolade with them,” exclaims Cynthia. With Express Yourself!™ Teen Radio, Cynthia’s goal is to give teens a voice so that they can speak up, speak out, and express themselves.

Express Yourself! airs every Sunday from 3-4pm PT on the Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel.

StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® airs LIVE every Wednesday 4-5pm PT on the Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel.
