Out of commission? Hey, who's out of commission! just overworked and underpaid [:)]
I have to confess, I'm not a viewer of The View -- even if a fellow Greek is (or was?) one of the hosts. Anyway, it's important to present this in a way that stays with the general approach they take to stories. I thought they were strictly talk show (i.e., guests on that the hosts interview). But if one or more of you who really watch the show and have a pretty good handle on who the audience is could make a practice "pitch" to me, we can massage this and then contact a producer directly. For that matter, that goes for any media opportunities you'd like to take advantage of (Prevention Magazine, etc.). Send me an email with a draft of your pitch answering the questions: Why this story? Why now? What's in it for that publication or shows' viewers/readers? With some massaging, we can make a more powerful pitch and get more hits. Please email me directly with the ideas: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the energy and the ideas!
