I love how we all have our own take on a particular vision, and get to bounce off of each other to create something better than any of us had initially thought of. It’s a case of several parts making the bigger whole–And I love it!"

Dierks Bentley and Michael Shawn Hartman Discuss "Only the Brave"

Michael Shawn Hartman and CMA Nominee Dierks Bentley Discuss "Only the Brave"

Our firefighters are some of America's finest, bravest heroes!”

— Michael Shawn Hartman

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 23, 2017 / — The distinctive vocals of multi-platinum singer/songwriter and Arizona native Dierks Bentley resonate throughout "Hold The Light," his first-ever song written and recorded for a motion picture. Also featuring Bon Iver's S. Carey, "Hold the Light" is featured in Columbia Pictures and Black Label Media's "Only The Brave," in theaters nationwide October 20th. The song was written by Bentley, Carey, Joe Trapanese and Jon Randall.

"Only the Brave," based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it – they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire. The film stars Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, with Taylor Kitsch and Jennifer Connelly. Directed by Joseph Kosinski and written by Ken Nolan and Eric Warren Singer, based upon the GQ Article "No Exit" by Sean Flynn, the film is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Michael Menchel, Erik Howsam, Molly Smith, Thad Luckinbill, Trent Luckinbill, Dawn Ostroff, and Jeremy Steckler.

Country Singer Michael Shawn Hartman is completing recording his new single, "We Are American's," about healing from the national divide the last political election brought about, and standing up for our country, united as one people. Hartman, the son of a WWII U.S. Veteran said about his peer Dierks Bentley new work; "I commend Dierks success, and the topic of this film. Our firefighters are some of America's finest, bravest heroes!"

Dierks Bentley said, "This is at the top, if not the most meaningful experience I've ever been a part of. It hits me harder than any other song I've had a chance to be a part of. Over the last couple years I've met and gotten to know Brendan, the sole survivor, and my mom has met with some of the guys' families, and it's still unfathomable to put yourself in any of their shoes. But, our goal was to create a message of hope and love. I'm honored to have been a part of it."

Joseph Kosinski, the director of the film, added, "This story resonated deeply with Dierks from the beginning – he was one of the first to raise money to support the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and his commitment has been unwavering since then. The theme comes from the score and the lyrics come from the heart, so it was a natural fit for the film."


Current CMA "Male Vocalist of the Year" nominee Dierks Bentley has a "reputation as one of the hardest-working entertainers in country music" (Music Row) as "he sells out enormous tours, is a perennial favorite of format radio stations, and earns critical acclaim without compromising his artistic vision," (Entertainment Weekly). With 17 No. One hits and more than one billion digital streams he "continues to take risks that pay off," (USA Today) as his eighth studio album BLACK, has been hailed the "most fully-formed LP of his career," (TIME). After making its debut at the No. his 2017 tour claimed the top spot on Billboard's Hot Tours selling over 750 million tickets. For more information visit


Recently named "The Next Johnny Cash," (NEWS BLAZE), rising country star Michael Shawn Hartman was heard recently in the media (FOX NEWS), suggesting that America's self-esteem had been damaged by criticizing America and our U.S. President. Michael Shawn Hartman has stunningly learned to play over 500 songs, and as a "masterful songwriter" (HOLLYWOOD SENTINEL) has written nearly 100 new songs, with several of his newly released tracks, now on his website found below, being called "brilliant" (HOLLYWOOD SENTINEL DAILY). According to ABC news, Michael Shawn Hartman has also recently started a new organization called FAITH, FREEDOM, COUNTRY; to help advance positive messages in country music. The singers slogan, as noted on NBC news, also has a new line of t-shirts saluting America, with–according to the artist, a portion of the proceeds going to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, for the rest of this month.

When asked what his life philosophy is, Michael admits, "My philosophy is don't take advantage of people, and be comfortable with everything around me. I try be the fairest I can to everybody." Hartman adds, "Country music makes me happy when I hear it. It makes me feel good. I want to do the same for people. I want to make people happy and feel good with my music, and I have been told that's just what I do!" For more information visit

A shot of Curtis Lum on set of Supergirl

Curtis makes his big screen debut in Mina Shum’s highly anticipated feature film Meditation Park opening the Vancouver International Film Festival

Meditation Park honours family, tradition and the unique culture of our city. It hit me close to home as they shot in Vancouver’s Chinatown where I used to buy fish with my dad and grandfather!”

— Curtis Lum

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, September 22, 2017 / — Curtis Lum returns to CW’s American superhero action-adventure TV series Supergirl to premiere October 9th. In Supergirl, Curtis plays Agent Demos, an agent in the DEO that works with Supergirl and her team to keep National City safe from the bad guys. Supergirl is based on the DC Comics character Supergirl (Kara Zor-El), and stars Melissa Benoist in the title role.

Currently Curtis is filming the new Freeform original drama Siren, which is slated for release in 2018. In his recurring role on Siren, Curtis plays Calvin a local fisherman.
Curtis makes his big screen debut this fall in Mina Shum’s highly anticipated feature film Meditation Park opening the 2017 VIFF (Vancouver International Film Festival), with a gala screening on September 28th. With an all-star cast that includes Chinese movie legend Cheng Pei Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy), and Hong Kong-American actor Tzi Ma, Meditation Park premiered at this year’s TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival).

Meditation Park is about a devoted Chinese wife Maria (Cheng Pei Pei) discovering her husband’s infidelity when finding another women’s thong in her husband’s laundry, propelling her on an empowering journey of mental, financial and physical emancipation. Curtis makes a cameo in this film playing a young fishmonger that Maria always goes to hassle and bargain with.

“Being a part of Meditation Park is somewhat like sending a love letter to my Mom,” says Curtis, “Meditation Park honours family, tradition, community and the unique culture of our city. It hit me close to home as they shot in a part of Vancouver’s Chinatown where I used to buy fish with my dad and grandfather from the market I shot in for the film!”

At the age of 20, Curtis did whatever it took to make his leap as an actor landing a recurring role on the Canadian teen-drama Renegade Press as Conor Ying. Soon after, Curtis booked his first movie playing a sperm-donating monk on an Anna Chi film called Dim Sum Funeral. In the recent years, he played Henry Kishida in FOX’s Prison Break and other guest roles in TV series including Travelers, The Arrangement, The Romeo Section and Psych.

Curtis is a “bonafide hustler” and a “fighter”, willing to take roles at any capacity to breakthrough an industry where Asian Americans are still a minority. He produced Jaded and Chasing Mood and a short experimental film called Pyramid, which was taken from the award-winning piece Spoken Word written by Andy Garland. He also produced the music video HeadLights featuring Cadence and starring Nalani Weston, breaking boundaries with his talent as he also sang in that song.

Curtis was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. He grew up in the family restaurant business with parents who taught him everything he needed to know about hard work. Curtis remains humble and takes all life as learning experiences, which he can apply to his craft. Curtis is involved with a non-profit community based group called “Help Change My City”. To stay healthy, he keeps up with a regular fitness regimen with boxing, kickboxing or playing basketball and when he needs to get in shape for a role, he relies on his go-to celebrity fitness trainer Anna Wong to whip him into shape.

His world of entertainment doesn’t stop there. Curtis has been hosting club nights and MC parties since he was 16, going by the name of “CuLu”. Along with acting, Curtis is a fashionista, style-setter, a bit of a rogue, rebel, and a trailblazer all at once, turning unconventional ways into his own conventional. Curtis currently resides in Vancouver and splits his time in LA.

Curtis Lum is available for interviews upon request.

Actress Jasynda Radanovic to Star in 'Broken Barriers' and 'The Tea Party'

Actress Jasynda Radanovic

Actress Jasynda Radanovic will take on starring roles in the upcoming films “Broken Barriers”and "The Tea Party"

SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, September 22, 2017 / — Actress Jasynda Radanovic, who's become a highly sought after actress in both Australia and the UK for a vast range of productions including live shows, theatre, television and film, has been tapped to star in the upcoming films "Broken Barriers" and "The Tea Party."

In “Broken Barriers” Radanovic will take on the starring role of Diane, a dynamic young woman who controls and hosts a social experiment involving six contestants who are placed in a room. With their cell phones placed in a glass box that is within view, but out of reach, and no means of communicating with the outside world, they are challenged to see how they interact when deprived of technology.

"'Broken Barriers' is a cautionary tale of what could happen to our future, and how dependent we are on our phones… they have become a necessity," explains Radanovic. "I am very thrilled about this role. It is great to play a character who is extremely quirky… She has this sweet and friendly tone, then all of the sudden if something doesn't go her way, she snaps."

The film, which is being directed by Brontie Geist, is scheduled to begin shooting in New South Wales, Australia later this year. About choosing Radanovic for the starring role in her upcoming film, director Brontie Geist says, "Jasynda's experience in acting definitely drew our attention. Her showreel allowed us to reflect her comic timing as well as showing her talent for taking on dramatic roles… her physical traits also played a role in casting her as they enhance her ability to convey Diane's personality as I envisioned it."

Radanovic will also star in Beth Toh's upcoming silent film "The Tea Party," which is set in the 1920s and inspired by "Pied Piper of Hamelin" by Robert Browning. Radanovic's skill as both an actress and dancer will be integral to bringing her character to life, as the story mainly revolves around her character becoming enthralled by 1920s ragtime music, which ultimately sets her off into a trance.

The actress says, "I love being a part of period pieces and getting to explore with the costuming, make-up and sets, you just become transported to another world. What's more, being in a project that is all about dance, and watching how movement is captured on film. It is gratifying to go back to the research and recreate the era of this dancing style, and then applying that to my character."

Considering Radanovic's history of dance-filled performances– including live shows such as the Australian Museum's commissioned performance of "Alexander the Great" where she starred as Olympias, "Peter Pan A Musical Adventure" where she played Tinkerbell and "Whistle Down the Wind" where she played Swallow, "The Tea Party" is the perfect film for this uber talented Aussie.

About working with Radanovic, director Beth Toh says, "She’s a great talent and we're lucky to have her on set…. She’s bright, cheerful and I’m glad to be able to work with her. Her dancing is also great!"

In addition to "Broken Barriers" and "The Tea Party" Radanovic has also been cast to take on the lead role of Nurse Sandy Granger in the upcoming series "Emergency: LA," which is currently in pre-production and is expected to begin shooting next year. The series revolves around the emergency services based out of the Los Angeles Fire Department's Station 77, LAPD and the emergency hospital treatment center known as Trauma One. The series, which is slated to begin filming later this year, focuses on the day to day to lives of the people who devote their lives to solving crimes, rescuing victims and treating the injured around the city.

Produced by Spectrum Multimedia Hollywood ("The Good Guys Club," "Hard Knocks Fighting"), "Emergency: LA" will be directed by Len Davies ("World Association of Wrestling," "Spirit 7"), Doug Coleman ("In Security," "Lawless") and Amit Medina ("RQW Bites," "Hollywood Makeover").

Actress Jasynda Radanovic, who's been referred to in the land down under as a stunning triple threat, is one of those diversely talented individuals who has managed to establish a strong reputation for herself as a skilled actress, dancer and singer. With starring roles in the upcoming films “The Tea Party” and “Broken Barriers,” as well as the series “Emergency LA” Radanovic is one leading lady we'll be seeing a whole lot more of on the big screen.

Network operator Digita has the technical ability to transmit HD broadcasts throughout Finland even on a fast schedule

At the moment, Digita has HD-capable networks covering 85 per cent of the people in Finland. We have invested heavily in enabling the new technology to expand rapidly throughout Finland, if required”

— CEO Juha-Pekka Weckström

HELSINKI, FINLAND, September 22, 2017 / — The television operators in the Finnish terrestrial broadcasting network have agreed that the free-to-air channels will all simultaneously adopt the DVB-T2 broadcasting technology that enables high definition (HD). The current broadcasts in SD format will end on 31 March 2020. Digita is preparing to respond to Yle’s call for bids concerning high-definition broadcasts during the autumn. Digita has already completed the technical planning for the transition to HD in 2020.

“At the moment, Digita has HD-capable networks covering 85 per cent of the people in Finland. We have invested heavily in enabling the new technology to expand rapidly throughout Finland, if required,” says Juha-Pekka Weckström, CEO of Digita.

“The media evolution requires that the network operator continuously develops services and the communications networks. Therefore, our primary goal is to ensure a smooth and market-oriented transition to high definition, and together with our customers to enrich the terrestrial-network viewing experience by offering hybrid services combining terrestrial-network television with broadband services,” Weckström continues. The hybrid TV services with nationwide broadcasts already complement the television channel selection with the most popular video services Areena, Katsomo and Ruutu as well as various other additional services.

The terrestrial broadcasting network is the most cost-effective way of broadcasting television content to everyone in Finland. The terrestrial television network is a broadcasting network where the television companies pay the broadcasting costs. This makes terrestrial television the only television distribution channel with no continuous costs for consumers other than an investment in an appropriate antenna system.

The terrestrial distribution network is a secure and reliable distribution channel that enables equal opportunities for receiving content regardless of the viewer’s location. At present, Digita’s terrestrial TV broadcasts reach 99.96 per cent of the population of mainland Finland. Approximately 50 per cent of the people in Finland receive television programmes via terrestrial television. In addition, its coverage extends to most of the Finnish summer cottages.

Marigold Catering is a premier boutique food service company offering five-star, restaurant-quality dining with outstanding event execution. Led by its founder Joan Rosenthal, Marigold has produced and catered hundreds of high-profile events, addressing every detail from menu creation, to venue selection, flowers, lighting, linens, entertainment and ambiance.

“Good word-of-mouth created my business; bad word-of-mouth would destroy it,” says Rosenthal. “I don’t care if it’s a wedding or a bagel for one: the standards I set and the standards I insist on are the same.”

And Marigold’s 80 employees and 300 servers and bartenders have embraced Rosenthal’s vision, model and brand. Recognized as Cleveland’s Top Off-Site Caterer by CBC Magazine, Marigold boasts the highest quality products, cutting-edge presentation and responsiveness no other caterer of its size can offer.

“You’re getting the love, the highest quality product and presentation,” says Rosenthal. “Catering isn’t a meal. It’s a memorable special experience. Marigold doesn’t cater food, Marigold delivers an experience.”

As for the future, Marigold is launching a sister company named Sprout. Sprout will offer the same quality food as Marigold without the customization for a more affordable option. Rosenthal hopes to develop her two companies simultaneously.

“Marigold is my legacy,” says Rosenthal. “Our vision is to create a fiscally sound company in conjunction with the highest level of quality and continue to employ the people who rely on Marigold for their families.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Joan Rosenthal in an interview with Jim Masters on September 26th at 11am EDT.
