When it comes to entertaining, enlightening and educating, no one in talk radio compares to Michael Baisden. His high energy and love for interacting with his listeners is just one reason for the popularity and success of "The Michael Baisden Show." Michael ignites heated discussions with explosive episodic themes like: Living Your Dream, Your Body Is Your Temple, Do Women Know What They Want and Pimps In The Pulpit.
His radio career began in 2003 when 98.7 KISS FM in New York City offered him a position as the afternoon drive-time host. Because of budget constraints the station was unable to offer him a salary. Michael’s response was, “Just give me the damned mic!” And sure enough, within six months, their afternoon drive ratings went from No. 9 to No. 1.
After eight months of consistent high ratings, Michael suggested taking his show national but management was apprehensive, suggesting that New York wasn’t ready. A few months later, Michael threatened to quit if management did not pursue a syndication deal. “There was no doubt in my mind that I could have one of the hottest shows on radio! I knew the impact it would have on people all across the country and I wasn’t taking no, for an answer,” Michael rebutted.
His vibrant personality on and off the air has made him a people magnet. He began attracting attention with primarily female followers as author and publisher of the highly successful provocative books: “Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat," “Men Cry in the Dark," “The Maintenance Man" and lastly “God’s Gift to Women." Two of his titles ultimately were adapted into stage plays. 2012 marked the return of Baisden the author with new titles: “Do Men Know What They Want,” “The Maintenance Man Collectors Edition” and just released the long awaited “Maintenance Man II: Money, Politics & Sex…Exeryone Has A Price.”
But his proudest moment came on September 20, 2007, when he passionately and skillfully spearheaded the famous Jena 6 March in Jena, Louisiana. This historic and momentous occasion garnered tens of thousands of citizens of all races to peacefully march in support of six young men who have been unfairly treated by the justice system. In addition, he urged millions of listeners to wear black on September 20th in protest of unequal justice. The news traveled throughout the country, everyone wore black in support of the Jena 6, from college students of all races to corporate executives.
2008 was another historic year. In late January Michael endorsed Sen. Barack Obama in the democratic primary. He celebrated President Obama’s victory with over 4,000 fans at a watch party in Miami on election night. The Obama camp along with millions of listeners credited Michael with being one of the major forces behind this historic victory to elect the first African American to the Presidency of the United States.
In December 2009 Michael called for a National Mentor Training Day and announced his plans for a 2010 nationwide campaign. He pledged up to $350,000 of his own money to be donated in over 72 markets he would visit on a bus tour. The outreach was named “One Million Mentors National Campaign To Save Our Kids.” Michael challenged his listeners to match or beat his donations and get involved. In October 2010 President Barack Obama publicly congratulated Michael on his efforts. He founded the Michael Baisden Foundation focusing on education, literacy and technology. Michael believes that “books change lives” and he is living proof!
Michael continues to entertain, enlighten and educate as he pursues one of his first dreams, to have his novels adapted to major Motion pictures. The other dream was to host a Late Night Talk show. He got that chance in the fall of 2007, when he partnered with TV One to host and co-executive produce “Baisden After Dark,” featuring comedian George Willborn and band leader Morris Day. The show was a smash hit, breaking records for viewers on the network.
In 2011, Michael continues to expand his media reach when he produced, wrote, and directed a ground breaking documentary film titled, “Do Women Know What They Want?” The reviews have been amazing! “It was time for something new and exciting, and no one else was doing it, not like this!” Michael said. Get ready! It looks like the baddest man on radio and late night TV, will be in theaters near you soon!
