fabtech960Manufacturing Talk Radio, a weekly live Internet Talk Radio show which broadcasts to manufacturers of all sizes across America will be broadcasting each afternoon from the FABTECH show floor, and their studio in booth B5438. There’s room for an audience, so plan now to join the show.

Show host, Lew Weiss, and co-host, Tim Grady, present breaking news and tackle discussions of business trends and economic forecasts in manufacturing for small, medium and large manufacturers across America.  The broadcasts from FABTECH will present a range of interviews that will include keynote speakers, members of the industry executive panel, exhibitors, show organizers, economic analysts and attendees.

Live broadcasts daily will provide seating for audience members. Shows will be conducted Tuesday and Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. till 3:00 p.m. and Thursday from 1:00 p.m. till 2:00 p.m.  But don’t be surprised if you see representatives from the radio show walking the aisles, checking out the exhibits and conducting impromptu interviews with attendees.  If you’ve ever wanted to be the subject of a broadcast interview, with an opportunity to share your opinions, you just might get that opportunity at FABTECH.

Become a member of the audience at Booth B5438 and take advantage of this chance for your 5 minutes of fame.  All live shows are recorded and placed on the Manufacturing Talk Radio website (MfgTalkRadio.com) for download as podcasts.  So you can hear all of the FABTECH broadcasts whenever you like after the show closes.

Scheduled interviews include:

  • Tuesday’s keynote speaker, Cindy Marsiglio, Vice President, U.S. Manufacturing for Walmart.  She’ll be talking about their new initiative to spend $250 billion dollars over the next decade on U.S. made products from current and new suppliers.
  • Wednesday’s keynote speaker, four-time Super Bowl champion and Vietnam veteran, Rocky Bleier will talk about being the best you can be in today’s highly competitive market.
  • Dr. Chris Kuehl, economic analyst for the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association will talk about the economic outlook for the coming year and trends that will impact manufacturing.


You’ll also hear commentary from some of the largest FABTECH exhibitors about their latest technology being demonstrated on the show floor and even attendee reactions to what they are seeing at the show.  It’s live and unpredictable, no two shows will be the same.

Manufacturing Talk Radio is celebrating its first anniversary here at FABTECH.  But the show’s hosts are not newcomers to manufacturing.  Their deep-dive interviews are informed by their industry experience.  Host Lewis Weiss is president of All Metals & Forge Group and has more than 45 years of experience in the industry. Host and Executive Producer Tim Grady brings more than 25 years of experience as a senior strategist and business advisor to companies of all sizes in more than thirty industries.  These guys know the right questions to ask!
