For 17 years as host of Conversations LIVE radio show and 6 years as host of Conversations Daily News, media personality and Mississippi native Cyrus Webb has been reporting on history-making events. On February 11, 2021 he will be making history of his own. The 45 year old will be celebrating his 10,000th guest of his radio career as well as attempting to break the Guinness World Record for most radio interviews in 24 hours.
“It’s hard to believe I’ll hit 10,000 guests this year,” says Webb, who began hosting the radio show when he was 28 years old in Jackson, MS. The show began on the radio dial at WMPR 90.1 FM. Today it’s heard on the airwaves daily in Yazoo City, Mississippi at WYAD 94.1 FM as well as Blogtalkradio, iHeartRadio and others.
Over the years the show’s guests have gotten more prominent, including notables such as Jon Meacham and Eugene Robinson, Stedman Graham, Leeza Gibbons and LeVar Burton and celebrities including DeVon Franklin, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bill Duke, Chandra Currelley, Renee Lawless, John Schneider, Thai Edwards, Peter Parros, Tyler Lepley, Gavin Houston, Jaclyn Betham and others.
The mission of Conversations LIVE is to share inspiring stories and to remind listeners of what is possible. For years millions have tuned in to the show to hear Webb talk with notables. To celebrate the show’s milestone of 10,000 guests, however, Webb is turning the camera literally on himself.
On Thursday, February 11, 2021 Webb will begin vlogging the day at 7:30a.m. central/8:30a.m. eastern, interviewing 500 guests total (The current world record is 347). The interviews will feature 5 unique questions for each guest and will be carried on a variety of platforms throughout the day such as Blogtalkradio at www.blogtalkradio.com/conversationslive, Yazoo City’s WYAD 94.1 FM, Youtube www.youtube.com/cyruswebb and Instagram.
However the day will not just be about radio interviews. Webb will be taking you along for the journey on his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cyruswebb, sharing insights throughout the day as you watch history unfold. Adding another layer to the event, Webb will also be including the 500 interviews in a special edition of Conversations Magazine, profiling them as a part of Conversations’ historic milestone that will be published on Amazon.com.
“it’s going to be an exciting experience,” says Webb. “I’m excited not just for the milestone. I’m excited to remind people of what hard work, dedication and faith can achieve. This year I’m allowing you to see what’s possible.”
Later in 2021 Webb will be attempting to break the world record for most TV interviews in 24 hours. Stay connected with Webb at www.cyruswebb.com as well as on social media.
