Entrepreneurs and PR peeps:
Do you have a cool new product or hot gadget you want to get some publicity for?
Are you an expert with an opinion on something controversial or are part of a trend?
Want to pitch story ideas and leads related to pop culture, celebrities, entertainment or lifestyles?
If so, leave the details in a comment below so my friend and reporter for a new daily one hour talk show in the San Francisco Bay area can hear about it.
She’s asked me to help spread the word.
The new talk show, launching in a month or two will engage viewers in real time candid conversations about the people and things making news. Social networking, pop culture, entertainment, tech news and politics all moderated by a host along with on air contributors. They will be using Twitter, Facebook, Skype, texting and a studio audience.
That’s the show in a nutshell. They are looking for topics that’ll get people talking – so it doesn’t have to be Bay Area specific.
Make sure you leave your contact info (website and email) so she can contact you directly if your story is chosen. I’ll let you know the name of the show as soon as I’m given the green light! If you know anyone who may want to get PR and be on TV in a major city, tell them to stop by here!
October 2010 Update:
The show has launched! Thanks everyone for leaving your pitches! Here’s what my reporter friend Lizzie Bermudez has to say about it:
The new show is called “7Live” on ABC-7 in San Francisco. It’s replaces the womens lifestyle talk show “The View From the Bay.” The new show is a totally different format and concept. It’s part “Hot Topics” (like on The View) and part CNN’s “Rick’s List” (which is an interactive news show incorporating social media).
The show will have a main host and I will do Pop Culture segments and another gal will do Tech segments. We’re interested in doing quick stories about things that get people talking – things that are trending. It’s a topical show that tackles the news of the day. For example, today I did the following stories…. the Washington State school district that wants to do checks of students cell phones, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo cast, a new poll that 20% of adults in relationships have the hots for someone else, True Blood cast on the cover of Rolling Stone, etc…
We’re not really looking for “product” unless it’s a new product that we’ve never seen before. Interesting surveys and studies make for good stories too.
