Beyond The Spotlight

Beyond the Spotlight – Hosted by Lauren Dair Owens and Sam Lant, is a teen radio show which spotlights today's talent in music, acting, athletics and more. Lauren and Sam give you access to everything teens are interested in today – Since we are teens ourselves we understand what you are looking for out in the world... entertainment and music are the main focus in your life just like ours. So... look to us to get you up close and personal with all your favorite teen stars. Not only will we be talking to these exceptional teens about their latest projects but we will GO BEYOND THE SPOTLIGHT to talk about their life outside of entertainment, favorite pastimes, future goals and their favorite charity, or cause, and how they are working to raise awareness and make a difference in their community. We also want to talk to our guests about the things that interest you.
