     Everyone wants to be on television – The professional credibility that mainstream media gives, helps you to be seen, heard, recognized and valued. The challenge is, unless you are in the media biz, it can be a frustrating, time-consuming, race to nowhere.  But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right tips, technique, and timing, you can get on TV quickly, leverage your expertise, and get invited back.  There are no secrets to being on media… But there is a system.

    Joel Boggess leverages his on-air experience, and shares the four things you MUST know before approaching television decision-makers, and the exact steps he took, which landed him on local and national news programs, 125-plus times. 

     You’ll learn the dos and don’t of:

    • Who to call;
    • When to call;
    • How to call;
    • Why to call. 

     Joel will also cover:

    • The biggest misunderstandings most people have about getting TV coverage;
    • Who’s who on camera and behind the scenes;
    • How TV crews work during a regular day/week;
    • How to pitch a story that gets coverage;
    • How you can leverage the TV fame.
