Joey Fortman

After more than 15 years working in traditional media, Joey Fortman traded in the microphone for the diaper bag. Her son Boston, born in 2008, not only changed her life, but changed the way she looked at media. In order to document his life for friends and family in the Midwest, Joey started Real Mom Media, which quickly turned from a small blog into a thriving business. Joey hosted radio shows in major markets nationwide, including mornings in Chicago at 9FM and WTMX Chicago. Since her move to Philadephia, Joey was featured on WBEN and WNUW. She is now the host of Real Mom Radio on Ben FM, highlighting moms in the Philadelphia area. Joey currently works with NickMom, a member of the Nickelodeon network with Three Moms Walk Into A…. Joey is also a contributing parenting expert on Fox, NBC, and other traditional media outlets. She has been featured nationally on Good Morning America, Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper, the Katie Couric Show, Dr. Oz, Red Book, The Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda, The Talk, Fox and Friends & The Newlywed Game.
