*** Special offer for JOTW subscribers:

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 Saturday and Sunday, August 20th and 21st, 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,
