*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned!

I have a special offer for JOTW subscribers. I teach a “Break Into TV” performance workshop in Los Angeles where people learn skills for hosting, news reporting and weather. I've been a host, reporter and weatherman in major markets across the U.S. for 10 years. No one in L.A. holds an across-the-board class like this. The next BITV Weekend Intensive is this weekend, Saturday and Sunday July 16th and 17th, 10am-5pm. I hold one every month. I train students for two days, and then they get to record demo reels. It's usually $350, but for anyone who mentions 'JOTW' the price is only $200.

Thanks for your time and your amazing newsletter!

Best,

Jonathan Novack

*** Sublime moment:

Driving down onto Pacific Coast Highway between Malibu Beach and the Santa Monica Pier, as the morning fog is lifting, heading south to San Diego, my entire family lustily singing along to the song on the radio: I wanna be sedated, by the Ramones. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
