"When I ordered your guide about how to be an on-air reporter I had little relevant experience. I followed many of your suggestions for internships, networking, preparation, etc. I am proud to say one of my informational meetings turned into an official 2 hour interview. Thanks to your tips, I was prepared, properly dressed, and had a great resume, cover letter, and reel. Thank you for providing such a comprehensive and enlightening handbook for aspiring on-air journalists."
