After a highly successful 6-week pilot, and a brief hiatus, TechCrunch Radio on Sirius XM is returning and settling in for a much longer stay. We’ll be returning very soon for our usual hour-long show on Sirius XM 102 Indie, and like usual, we’ll be holding our rapid-fire startup pitch-off.
If you’re new to the program, TechCrunch Radio is a new radio show hosted by TechCrunch East Coast Editor John Biggs and myself. We discuss the week’s news, bring on interesting folks to interview about the future of various technological industries, and then head into a pitch-off, where five companies have exactly sixty seconds to impress us, a VC guest judge, and our dear listeners.
The show airs every Tuesday at 6pm ET/3pm PT, with a replay on the West Coast at 6pm PT.
But… We need your help.
In order to have a pitch-off, we need entrepreneurs with products to pitch. That’s where you come in.
It’s a great way to spread awareness for your company, get feedback from VCs and members of the tech media, and of course, practice your radio voice. So apply! But read the rules first.
1. You must have a product that is available to general users. No sign-up pages or pre-orders with a TBD ship date. There must be a link we can give to listeners/readers where they can access your product, service, what have you.
2. You must be an early stage company. If you have raised a Series A or later, you are disqualified. Bootstrapped or seed stage startups are welcome.
3. You must be able to pitch your product with your words only.
4. You must be able to operate a telephone.
It’s going to be a hoot!
You can also stay in touch with TechCrunch Radio on SoundCloud.
Each week, TechCrunch Radio will air Tuesdays at 6:00 pm ET with a replay at 6:00 pm PT, drive time for both coasts, on Indie, channel 102, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. Subscribers will also be able to listen via SiriusXM On Demand through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices and online at siriusxm.com.
