Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of attending television show appearances of authors that I represent to the media. I remember meeting Geraldo Rivera, Al Roker, Kelly Rippa, Maury Povich and other talk show personalities. Each show seems like it happened yesterday, for they each were unforgettable moments. Being in a TV studio always reminds me of how small these sets – and studio seating areas really are – and of how powerful one personality and one segment of an episode can impact an author’s brand and influence a nation. I got reminded of that when I recently attended the taping of my client, Dan Pelino, for television’s leading health advocate, Dr. Oz.
Everyone is curious as to what it’s like to be just a few feet from Dr. Oz, to see him work his magic in person. He is a pro and navigates this segment as if he were interviewing someone he’s known his whole life. He expresses a familiarity and a hungry curiosity that leads the audience to feel they are witnessing something powerful. They really are.
