About the podcast

Hosted by Ron Holt, CEO and founder of Pink Zebra Moving and host of How I Built This, the podcast features local entrepreneurs across Birmingham.

In Episode 11 Cindy Martin: From building global connectivity in ’86 to Birmingham to build a local media legacy, Holt interviewed Bham Now Founder Cindy Martin.

Working for Cindy, I have learned many things about her and her career, but it’s always fun to see your boss interviewed. And somehow, you end up learning even more about them. This is exactly what just happened to me when I watched the podcast, and I have to say, I learned a lot about not only her time in media, but how the industry has grown and changed in unimaginable ways. It may or may not have also caused me to quietly shout, Wow, I work for her!
