MoxieTalk Host Kirt Jacobs with Elizabeth Kizito, owner and founder of Kizito Cookies

Though “MoxieTalk” is a modern talk show available across a wide array of media platforms, host Kirt Jacobs has adopted a pretty “old-school” approach to interviewing his guests. Talk show veterans like Dick Cavett, Bob Costas, Merv Griffin and Tavis Smiley have inspired Jacobs to create an intimate environment for his guests to share their life stories on MoxieTalk, a half-hour interview program available online and through podcast as well as broadcast outlets of: MetroTV, WBNA21 and KET.

Lessons from talk show greats

From Cavett’s congeniality to Griffin’s affability, the qualities that made those hosts and their shows legendary “have been the ethos of my development” at the helm of MoxieTalk, Jacobs says. He also found inspiration in the intimacy and thought-provoking questions of shows like “Inside the Actors Studio” and “Charlie Rose.”
