I began broadcasting health news and commentary 35 years ago in the Boston Metro area. More recently, I have adopted the 21st century technology of audio and video podcasting as conduits for my short health and wellness reports, Health News You Should Use, and my timely Recall Reports from the FDA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

Prior to 2023, I have filed news reports and health news roundups as audio podcasts and vidcasts each week.  My audio podcast, Dr. Howard Smith Oncall, has been distributed on: Apple Podcasts, Libsyn, iHeart Radio, and others.  My Vidcast, Dr. Howard Smith Reports, has beeb distributed on: TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

As of 2023, both my video and audio podcasts will be titled Dr. Howard Smith Reports.  I will be distributing my broadcasts on: TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Spotify, Telegraph, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Wordpress, Stitcher, and Mastodon.

In addition to medicine and wellness, my past radio work as medical editor and fill-in talk show host has permitted me to explore other passions and areas of expertise including customer and patient service issues, the politics of healthcare, health education, parenting, personal electronics, mechanics, and comedy.  For examples of this material, please visit the BROADCAST DEMOS PAGE.
