You may not think you have anything to say on the radio, but look further
by "Talk Radio Advocate" Francine Silverman
Perhaps you have never considered going on radio,
or are convinced you have nothing to share. Or
maybe, unlike me, you are unaware of the
proliferation of talk radio shows on the Internet -
covering virtually every topic.
Hosts want guests to be either entertaining or
Unless you are a comedian, you probably fit the
"informative" spot. If you are an author, you've
done research for your book.
You may think only authors go on radio. Let me
give you three examples of my clients, whose
books do not figure in their interviews:
One is a holistic health practitioner whose
expertise in acupuncture and Qigong is what

Whatever your expertise, there is bound to be a radio show for you.
