Talk radio can be one of the most effective ways of promoting a new book, business, product, or personal story. It's fast, it's easy, and, for the most part, it's free. But for all of talk radio's benefits, there is one significant challenge facing prospective talk radio guests: trying to get on the show. While smaller, terrestrial radio stations are more likely to accept and respond to guests' requests, these stations are also far more likely to have websites that are poorly designed or infrequently maintained. More often than not, these sites contain little information regarding guest criteria or procedures, and many don't even specify whether or not the show welcomes guests at all.This book seeks to bridge the gap between show hosts and prospective guests, providing a reference guide to roughly 700 talk radio shows from the U.S. and around the world. Based on interviews and submissions from the radio hosts themselves, it provides readers with all of the information they will need before contacting a talk radio program, including show titles, descriptions, themes, guest criteria, hosts' biographies, host-preferred contact information, and helpful tips on how to best pitch your ideas to the shows' hosts or producers. Entries are organized under categories of show themes, including Religion, Travel, Addiction and Recovery, Sports, Entertainment, and many more. The book also includes information on many of ""Talkers Magazine's"" Top 250 Radio Talk Shows, interview tips for radio guests, and tips for conducting a radio interview over the phone.
