Webby Awards Honor Podcast Co-Hosted by St. Elizabeth Doctor & Local Radio Personality
A podcast hosted by a St. Elizabeth Healthcare doctor was announced as a 2021 Webby Awards honoree.
The Lady Bod Podcast is co-hosted by St. Elizabeth urogynecologist Dr. Susan Oakley and local radio personality Holly Morgan (WREW).
The Webby Awards are presented every year by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, providing competitive awards categories for websites, advertising and media, online film and video, mobile sites and apps, and social media.
Each category has two winners in addition to a few other official nominees, as well as honorees.
The Ladybod Podcast, which focuses on women's health, is an honoree in the Health and Wellness podcast category.
The show began in June 2019 after a meeting about the grand opening of the St. Elizabeth Women’s Health Center, when one of the Hubbard Cincinnati staff members recognized the potential in urogynecologist Dr. Susan Oakley as more than just a doctor. Hubbard operates local radio stations including WREW.
The staff member recognized Oakley as an entertainer who could make people at ease about sensitive topics.
An executive producer with 20 years of media experience was brought on-board.
Holly Morgan of WREW, branded as Mix 94.9, was named as a co-host.
At 62 episodes and counting, the show has received a five-star rating on Apple Podcasts. The candid discussions and ongoing trust built by the hosts created a level of comfort that allows the audience to open up and ask tough, personal questions.
Holly Morgan is a wife and mother of two and lives her life on her daily radio show on Mix 94.9 as well as her social media accounts. Morgan also serves as The Lady Bod Podcast’s producer and editor.
Dr. Susan Oakley is also a wife and mother of two who is dedicated to improving the lives of women each day as a practicing physician and surgeon.
