BlogTalkRadio Insider: How to Book Notable Guests


Many of our hosts have expressed an interest in learning how to book notable, big-named guests. BlogTalkRadio Insider, the show that goes behind the seens to interview the folks who make BlogTalkRadio tick, is discussing this very topic. Today at 4:00 EDT, popular talk show host Bob “Mr. Media” Andelman will join Shaun Daily and I to discuss his methods for landing interviews with Billy Bob Thornton, Kirk Douglas, Joey Lawrence, Cheryl Hines and many others.

Next week, film critic (and self-proclaimed movie addict) Betty Jo Tucker will come on to tell us about her success with booking guests such as Cloris Leachman, Debbie Reynolds, Fred Willard, Barry Bostwick and so many others.

If you ever wondered how our featured hosts land interviews with their famous guests, tune in to BlogTalkRadio Insider this afternoon and next week to find out. The chat room will be open, so come with your questions! We look forward to seeing you there!
