Are you a working or aspiring host, newscaster or expert who wants to know how to get on the air and stay on the air? Do you want to get practical information from one of the greatest on air coaches, and best industry executives that hire the talent? Come and hear how from TV Executives Gerette Allegra and Karin Silverstein, who have worked at SONY, VH1, OWN, ABC, E! and more, and from Premiere On-Air coach Patricia Stark, used by many networks to coach talent and a leader of how-to workshops on being in front of the camera. Learn from a seasoned TV Director, Bahman Samiian, who has worked for NBC Universal, ABC, SONY, OWN, Al Jazeera, FOX and more.

Join us for a one-day seminar in New York City, October 18th to learn how to get the job and keep the job! Get the REAL insider secrets of what goes on behind the scenes from real casting and network executives. You've gotten in front of the casting agent, or better yet, the network executive or showrunner, now what do you do? Learn how to present yourself and give them what makes you unique. Learn how network executives think. What's your 30-second introduction on tape, what do you say in the room? Is your reel getting you where you want to be? Does your reel really represent what and who you are?

We will look at your reels before and during the class; talk the pros and cons of your reel – which is often the first and only impression of you to casting agents and executives. What can you take out? Is it too long? What's missing? Does it really show YOU? What's outdated? How much humor should be used or not used? How does one reel serve all masters? Should you have two reels?

We will discuss the differences between a Newscaster, Host and Expert.  Do you want to slot yourself into one area? Who's your "team"? Who you need and who do you not need.  Basic pay ranges will be covered, as will how to go past rejection and keep at it.

Learn from the Director:  How to avoid embarrassing mistakes, important things to know about microphones, IFB's, prompter, lighting, camera angles and more.

And get ready for a fun Q&A hour with lots of inside stories of talent – the good, the bad and the ugly side of this business we love.

Join us for lots of practical, useful information, and individual time for us to work with you. This invaluable seminar gives the insider perspective from the director, TV executives, casting agents and on-air coach that will get you the job and keep you on the air!
