Talk Show Bookings: How To Get on a Talk Show?

  • Radio Talk Show Booking

So You Want To Be A Hot Guest in a show? Here’s What It Takes…

A Great Message
You have an important message, and TVA is ready to help you broadcast that message with an impressive impact on Radio and/or TV! With greater than 25 years of experience, TVA has developed a unique and exciting promotional venue. We have established a great reputation in the industry and have developed strong working relationships with key media contacts throughout the US, Canada, Australia, and other English speaking markets. Through these media contacts, we arrange for clients to appear as guests/experts on popular radio stations plus local/national television shows. Radio is a great tool and we target appearances with a blend of AM-Talk (with great demographics) and FM variety (with great big numbers). Segments range in length from 5-55 minutes. Using aggressive media exposure, our clients promote themselves, their causes, and/or their product (books, seminars, toys/games, consulting services, etc.)

A Desire To Spread That Message
TVA represents authors, professional speakers, special causes, industry experts, publishers, sports figures and entrepreneurs. Anyone that wants his or her message heard by millions of people! We personally coordinate all the details and logistics with the media. This includes: promoting our client; providing the station with the details necessary to add “spark” to the interview; booking the show and working out a mutually agreed schedule. It’s a lot of work, and the stations we deal with demand responsiveness, quality guest and quality bookings… Therefore, we intentionally limit the number and type of clients that we contract with.

An Expert In Your Area
Because the media relationships we have are so important to our mutual success, we must ensure that our clients are talented, marketable and of current interest. * Part of our contract includes a session with a media consultant who will constructively assess your presentation(s) and suggest ways that you can add impact and appeal to your message. By promoting only high quality guest we are able to “open doors” in great media markets and maintain our reputation as the leading media talent referral in the industry. When stations book a TVA Guest, they know they are getting someone their listeners will enjoy!
