Having kept listeners company during their commutes for years as morning drive host for Boston stations like WRKO and WSSH-FM, Jordan Rich is launching a new podcast series with Veterans Northeast Outreach Center (VNEOC).
Titled, Voices of VNEOC, the Chart Productions podcast is available on Apple, Google, Stitcher, Deezer and other platforms.
“Throughout my life, I have been an ardent supporter of veterans causes,” said Rich, whose current podcast, On Mic with Jordan Rich, reaches an international audience. “My father was in the army stationed in Germany in the early 1950’s, so my interest in this cause is personal, too.”
Serving Essex, Middlesex and Barnstable Counties (MA) and Rockingham and Hillsborough Counties (NH), VNEOC provides basic food and housing, advocacy as an Accredited VSO, counseling, peer support, case management, employment and education to veterans and their families.
As for its composition, Rich said each Voices of VNEOC podcast will be in magazine format and last approximately 30 minutes.
“Each episode will feature several short segments on different aspects of the work performed by VNEOC,” he explained. “We are going to reveal the honest to goodness stories of veterans and how their lives are improving. It will be a first-class production.”
Rich credited colleague Dan Thibeault of Fast Twitch Media for bringing this and other Chart Productions podcasts to “the cloud.”
“Dan handles the development of the podcast RSS feeds, artwork, launch and networking of podcasts,” he said. “His contributions are crucial.”
According to VNEOC’s John Ford, the opportunity to work with Rich and Thibeault is “remarkable.”
“I especially love the chance to share the stories of some incredible men and women who have served our nation,” he said. “I cannot think of a better person than Jordan Rich to help tell these stories.”
