Jeff Brown is the host of the highly-acclaimed "Read to Lead" podcast. Before beginning Read to Lead, he spent 26-years in radio. Jeff even co-hosted an award-winning and nationally syndicated morning show from 2002 to 2008.

The Read to Lead Podcast began in 2013. Since then I’ve been fortunate to interview a number of New York Times bestselling authors including John MaxwellSeth GodinDan MillerDaniel PinkSimon Sinek, Chris Brogan (not once but twice), Gary Vaynerchuk and Liz Wiseman among others.

The Read to Lead Podcast has been a top #10 Business and top #3 Career podcast in iTunes, is an iTunes Essentials podcast (Book Lovers), and has twice been nominated Best Business Podcast. Read to Lead has been featured in EntrepreneurInc.SethGodin.comChrisBrogan.comGoins WriterSocial Media ExplorerNashville Business Journal, the Tennessean, and more.

Jeff also helps mentor and teach people how to host their own shows. Since January 2014, Jeff has leveraged his radio background to coach numerous podcasters, helping dozens create, launch, grow and monetize their shows. People like Brendan HuffordLiz CovartHarry DuranDarrell DarnellBen Castleberry and Nicole Welch have all been clients. He has even had the opportunity to consult with the US government and several multi-million dollar companies the last few years.
