“The world is in need of a new generation of leaders. Leaders who have the courage to break through the boundaries and question everything around them. Society is yearning for bold and enthusiastic women and men to provide the necessary leadership that will be required for the next leap forward.”
I was living in two parallel universes – at least it seemed that way. One universe had me covering the news cycle on national radio, as a news commentator and host there was no shortage of bad news to go around – I know I reported on it. There is far too much truth to the phrase – ‘If it bleeds, it leads.’ They say bad news sells, not positive news or encouraging stories that improve our lives. I beg to differ.
My other universe centered on all these exciting and inspiring stories of people that were finding themselves on the brink of some life decision that might transform their life, and that would ultimately give hope back to the human race. There are so many underreported stories that need to be highlighted in the news. People that need to be celebrated and cherished. Brink of Greatness™ was born as a platform to showcase the greatness that thrives in so many of us.
A FEW WORDS ON MY ORIGINS
I invested 27 years in the marketing world as the CEO, Creative Director of a Worldwide Marketing and Advertising Agency. I was know as the BIG IDEA CATALYST. I’m a visionary, I was able to see the big ideas and the potential that many in the C-Suite could not see. I love bringing out the best in people. My time in the marketing world is probably best summed up with this two and a half minute video that Fox News did on my role and the uniqueness that we created at that special place.
It was back in June 2010 that I made the leap myself from the corporate boardroom to the radio mic and television camera. I knew that this other universe had ‘real people’ stories that needed to be told. I’ve discovered since then – there is more good and positive happening across our nation and around the world than the media would have you believe.
It all started with both a daily talk radio show playing in a top 20 market and I was one of the pioneers on YouTube in the launch of Malcolm Out Loud TV back in June 2010. Never one to rest on my successes or failures, I hired a pr firm to advance my brand across talk radio as a national commentator on leading stations.
Most people introduce themselves by saying ‘I am so and so’. I use a different style of introduction… ‘This is Malcolm Out Loud’. For me it was to create a moment – a moment that says ‘I’ve arrived or I’m here’. An expression that says ‘I own this moment’. I started using it on my Web TV program from the onset and I incorporated it into my national radio work and the syndicated Out Loud Minute early on. I use it as both my hello and as my sign-off. I believe it’s important for each of us to stake out our uniqueness and let it rip!
THE BIRTH OF A NETWORK
Like some of the most successful projects and initiatives in history, America Out Loud came out of need, not greed. The idea started when a few folks asked for advice or guidance in creating their own talk shows. From that spark in April 2016, it started by weaving these talents together, along with my own, and many of the contributors that were selflessly feeding the blog with wisdom and solutions. – into a unique network that would attract tens of millions. The platform is prime now for substantial growth and expansion, as you’ll see in the coming years. We have some very special plans in place!
America Out Loud is the informational news and entertainment portal combining the latest technology with incredible talent in a most unique setting. A place where you can listen to top programming from select personalities, read the latest from bloggers who get it, and watch some of the latest videos from decision makers. Is it possible to be respectful and yet direct and truthful – without screaming at someone or talking over their heads? The answer is YES. America Out Loud is all about the vision of the voices.
FEW OTHER POINTS TO KNOW

You may also wish to check out my Weekly Radio Headline News Awards. I started this for radio affiliates back in 2013, and have been steadfast in delivering what I consider to be the newsworthy headlines of the week and I gift them an award. Sometimes for stupidity, recklessness, and with sarcasm – to brilliant moments we should all cherish – all wrapped up in one segment. I deliver them live in many radio markets and I record them for podcast, you can hear them at this link ‘YOU TALKING TO ME?‘.
Back to where I started this from, my origins as a YouTube guy, Over 700+ programs throughout a five year span, and I’m still having a great time. Malcolm Out Loud TV informs and inspires people to take action. From business to politics, from spirituality to social happenings, this ground breaking digital news magazine brings a fresh perspective to a world vying for quality programming.

We’ve all been to those conferences or seminars where you get so bored that you literally have to force yourself to stay awake. Even worse – you invest hours of your precious time and you learn nada – you come away feeling empty. I can guarantee you this – you won’t be sleeping through my talks. Let’s just say that public speaking won out over algebra in my world! The size of the group is irrelevant. I talk to millions of people on national radio. Hundreds of people on stage. A dozen people in a boardroom. What is relevant is the impact! There is no greater reward in this lifetime than to impact a life. I do this through the process of these two extraordinary talks:
THE BRINK OF GREATNESS AWAITS YOU!
Please get involved and get loud in your own life.
