How to pitch TV

How to pitch TV

Today’s podcast episode is all about how to pitch for TV segments!

TV is at an interesting place in time where most interviews are being done remotely — which means you can pitch to a ton of different markets (locations) across the U.S. instead of having to physically be in studio for the interview.

Doing tv interviews not only increases your credibility as an expert in your industry but it can also help you pitch to national tv as well as help build your speaking career and so much more. 

During this solo episode, you’ll learn everything you need to know about how to for a local tv segment.

At the top of the episode, I share more about my new program, The Amplified Expert Academy, that begins October 5th. Don’t delay on submitting your application!

So let’s get started!
