"We've worked with Cynthia for years now and she is a truly a wonderful host and producer who goes above and beyond from the minute she books the interview until even after it's aired. She is thorough, prepared, and always does a great interview on the show giving our authors great exposure and a stimulating conversation to boot. Most of all though, she's a pleasure to work with and really cares about building relationships, follow up and taking the time to do it "right."

Leslie Rossman, Open Book Publicity

OPPORTUNITIES FOR RADIO INTERVIEW

Statistical Research Inc., states that 96% of the US population listens to the radio at least once a week and 75% listen EVERY DAY … more than any other media. Interview time is worth even more than ad time. Why? Because people pay more attention to the shows than the ads … and they're much more likely to believe them. Which do you pay more attention to?  The commercials or the guests?

Have you been attempting to get a great interview on a great show to promote yourself?

Are you frustrated with trying to contact busy radio producers?

We understand how difficult it is to get publicity, especially without a publicity department. Publicists charge $2000-$6000 per month or more to garner interviews for you without any guarantees of the quality of the interview. Most authors and experts do not want to waste their time scouring the internet to find a radio program with a great host who will offer an interview.    Our program, Starstyle®-Be the Star You Are! is brought to the airwaves as an outreach program of the charity, Be the Star You Are!™ which works to empower women, families, and youth-at-risk through literacy and positive media, such as our radio show.  Because we strive to bring financial contributions to the charity and at the same time publicize authors and experts that need a PR boost, we are offering a low cost opportunity for you to be interviewed on our show without having to hire a publicist.  You'll make a donation to the charity, Be the Star You Are! (www.bethestaryouare.org) , get a tax deduction and we promise you a fabulous interview that you can use to promote yourself long after the program has ended.

You may choose either a 10 minute segment or a 20 minute segment.

Special rates for authors, non profits, and companies.

Both of these opportunities include a listing on our web sites (www.star-style.com, www.bethestaryouare.org, www.worldtalkradio.com) plus a live interview where we will give out your web site and contact information.  Both interviews will be archived on our World Talk Radio site for free for added publicity.  (The 10 minute interview will be in conjunction with another interview by another author.)  A CD with MP3 of your interview is available for an additional $19 including shipping.  We can also have multiple CD's made for you at a reasonable cost. (Minimum 50-please email us for quotes)

The 20 minute interview includes the following benefits to you in addition to those listed above:

            *photo of your book on our radio page with web link

            *archive of your individual segment with web link and description of your interview

Both opportunities will also be broadcast on our syndicated radio stations at four different networks at NO additional cost.

The cost is tax deductible and you will make checks payable to Be the Star You Are!™  501 c 3 charity.  You may also use VISA, MASTERCARD, or pay via PAYPAL on our web site at www.bethestaryouare.org.

 "I have been interviewed by thousands of interviewers and Cynthia Brian is one of four of the top interviewers in the country today.  I feel like we are two bodies in one soul.”

Jack Canfield, CoFounder Chicken Soup for the Soul Series

 Most of the authors we interview are on best seller lists or are experts or celebrities in a variety of areas.  Our past guests have included Dr. Phil, Deepak Chopra, Bernie Siegel, David Bach, Mark Victor Hansen, and hundreds of other gurus.  Of course, we like to think we have contributed to the many successes of authors who have shared their books on our show. Here’s what Jill Murphy Long, author of The Permission Series, has to say, “I have been on Cynthia’s radio program twice and books sales are now edging toward 30,000.  Thank you for the support!”

This is a fabulous chance to get a first class interview that will be positive, upbeat, and personal and have it broadcast around the world.  We can also provide you with a logo for your web site to link your segment directly to your interview so that you can get other media to pay attention to your archived words.
