Wellington, FL – January 10, 2012 – Mason Phelps Radio is pleased to announce that its first segment will be held this Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. EST on W4CY.com. This week’s show will be co-hosted by Media Personality Steve Williams, and will feature Bob Cacchione, Peter Cashman and Ron Davis as guests. The new radio show will be held each Thursday. Phelps and his guests will be discussing the most important issues regarding the equestrian community, from exciting upcoming events, to the challenges and obstacles the sport faces.
Co-Host Williams is a staple on the equestrian scene and has helped produce major events like Dressage Under the Stars. “I’m really excited to have a forum to share news on the happenings of the equestrian lifestyle, particularly in the heart of the equestrian capital, Wellington,” he commented. “Mason is the voice on what is happening and what needs to happen in the horse business. I’ve always been fond of his ability to do what is best for the community and to provide a forum so that people can be informed and have discussions about what’s going on. He always does it with a really fun twist and he’s always very energetic about being a part of the lifestyle; anytime that I can be involved and share that I am honored.”
One of this week’s guests will be Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Founder and Executive Director Bob Cacchione, who will be joined by Coach of the IHSA Equestrian Team at United States Military Academy at West Point, NY, Peter Cashman. Cacchione has dedicated himself to the growth and success of the organization. “I’m very excited to be on the show,” he noted. “It is another opportunity for the IHSA to be exposed a very wide equestrian audience. This week I am hoping to discuss the growth of the association for collegiate riding, our National Championships, which will be held in Raleigh, NC, and the scholarship foundation, which is planning to give out 30 scholarships this year.”
Docutainment Director and Producer Ron Davis will be this week’s second guest. Davis produced the hit documentary Pageant, and is currently working on a new piece that will air on HBO. “I am very interested in doing some equestrian documentaries, so I’d love to chat about that on Mason’s show this week,” he said. “I really enjoy working with Mason and it’s always great entertainment when he is involved; I never know what is going to fly out of his mouth. I think the first show will be a huge hit and everyone should be listening!”
