The Crew

Who is CEO McClain u ask? To describe him in one word would be “Undeniable.” CEO created NoAdvisory with the hopes of bridging the gap between radio and podcasting. With two of his favorite shows the Breakfast Club and Drink Champs, CEO wanted NoAdvisory podcast to be the perfect mix of the two highly popular platforms.

 

Originally from Brooklyn N.Y and now residing in Charlotte North Carolina, CEO McClain always had a passion and drive to be successful and be heard. Working for others was never really an option in the foreseeable future for CEO for he always wanted to be his own boss and work with like-minded individuals who shared his passion and drive for success. With the online success of his clothing line KreativeApparel, CEO was able to put his earnings into creating now Charlotte’s hottest podcast NoAdvisory! In as little as a years time, and with the help of his squad, NoAdvisory Podcast is becoming the most talked about and most popular podcast in the 704!

 

Being a host was never part of the plan for CEO for he wanted to sit back and watch the fruit of his labor sprout and flourish into the Podcasting Juggernaut that he knew NoAdvisory would become, but given his personality and his background in music, the mic is where CEO feels the most comfortable and even better…..HOME… So y’all might as well get used to hearing and seeing his voice and face because NoAdvisory podcast is not going anywhere!!

Ashley Barney or “AshB” is a true Midwestern girl. She was born in East St. Louis and was raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  AshB’s love for media started at a very early age where she always dreamed of working in in some entity of media. Throughout her life, she continuously struggled to find ways to express herself without any censorship from big brother, aka the FCC. Of course, her personality has always been very colorful and she remains unapologetic in the way she expresses her opinion.

 

After graduating from Morris College with a BFA in Broadcast Media, she was afforded the opportunity to work at a local news station and at first glance, she thought BOOM, dream job achieved!  She soon realized, however, that the day to day structure of the news station setting was not quite fitting for someone like herself who thrived off of spontaneity and pop culture…. and so she quit.  Even though the “structured” news setting didn’t really pan out at that time, avenues like YouTube, Twitter, and other social networks were really starting to take off, and it was allowing individuals the means to monetize minimally filtered self-created content.  She eventually stumbled up a local podcast that impressively, was doing the damn thing in Charlotte, North Carolina and holding its own as a pop culture-themed podcast.  After being introduced to No Advisory, she knew this was definitely the avenue she needed to be able to put her skills in hosting, impromptu, and television to the test.  She immediately clicked with the No Advisory squad and could tell that everyone was on the same wavelength.  Over time, the crew has become more than co-workers or mere friends, No Advisory has become her family! And the rest is yet to come…
