Webb now hosts 4 shows a day, spending over 20 hours a week on the air. He was recently recognized by Blogtalkradio as one of their success stories. "I do what I do because I love it," he says. "It's great to get the recognition, but the most important thing for me is to make sure that my guest and my listeners walk away with the best experience. If I can do that, then I've done my job as a host."
