Local TV Tip for Santa Claus
This week’s “GOLD Member Discussion” is on the class “How to Get on TV of Fun & Profit” so here’s another tip on that.
The first several times I was on TV as Santa was in Oregon on the local news. Several times the news crew came to me at events and they interviewed me as part of covering the event. That’s great but these types of reports often air after the event is over so they don’t help the event in a promotional sense.
When Santa is in town to do a Tree Lighting, ride in a parade, make a Grand Illumination, or making an appearance of any kind… it’s news and many local news shows would love to talk with Santa and air the report BEFORE the event.
Here’s the tip…
Have the event organizer contact the local news programs a few days prior to the event and let them know that you are available for interviews.
I have done a number of these pre-event interviews. I few times in in news studios and several times at some other location.
Have fun… and let’s help spread as much joy as possible.
