Produce and Host “World of Sports with Cheetah”
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 12, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — World Champion and Professional Athlete Fredia “Cheetah” Gibbs and Producer Marie Lemelle, Platinum Star Public Relations have teamed up to produce a weekly one-hour radio show, “World of Sports with Cheetah.” The all-sports program broadcasts from the RMC Studios, 5047 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90019 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. every Saturday. Audiences can call-in to speak to the host and/or guests at 323-965-1600 and watch/listen live at www.RMConair.com.
“Round for round, pound for pound, I will bring you interviews from the inner circle of the sports world,” said Cheetah who made history as the first African American woman to hold 3 titles in the kickboxing sport, which earned her the title “most dangerous woman in the world.”
The guests for August 13 are: Mary Casas Sandoval, a most sought after Latin zumba and dancehall fitness instructor in Northern America; Robert Renier IFS Middleweight Muay Thai Kickboxing Champion; Brandol Mendoza IFC and IFK Champion; Vincent Familari IFS middleweight and No. 1 contender; and Artist/Actor Shawn “Hazz” McDonald writer and performer of “Champion,” the theme song for the show.
“Cheetah is the epitome of team spirit and is the perfect choice as the host,” said Lemelle. “She has been in the winners’ circle and as an accomplished professional athlete has a high level of relationships in the sports world, real-life experiences, and a deep knowledge of kickboxing, boxing, track and field, and basketball.”
The show fills a much-needed niche that has been overlooked in mainstream media. To date, the growing line-up includes: David Huey- Trainer/ Fight Commentator; Master Shawn Shilati –Promoter; and Freddie Roach- Legendary Trainer; Jeff Meyers- Promoter; Don “The Dragon” Wilson, the only kick-boxer to win 11 world titles in 3 weight divisions; and Peter “Sugarfoot” Cunningham, an 8-Time undefeated, undisputed world champion kickboxer; and more.

As a former victim of bullying, Cheetah knows all too well, the importance of building self-esteem. “That’s why I learned mixed martial arts and threw more than 10,000 kicks per leg in one year,” said Cheetah, whose show endorses nonprofit organizations: BullyMeNotFoundation.com and ChampionWorldUSA.com. “Bullying is a global problem, and learning a form of self-defense like mixed martial arts will give you the confidence needed to stand up to bullies even if it is cyber-bullying –your mind is stronger than a verbal attack.”
