Radio-TV Interview Report (RTIR), the email publication producers read to find guests. You can use them to let producers know you’re available for interviews. Since 1986, RTIR has become known as the bible of the industry among producers looking for guests. We’ll run it in the publication which reaches over 1,100 radio-TV producers across the U.S. and Canada.

Advertisers in RTIR have been booked on such shows as Good Morning America, CNN, Fox News, ABC's 20/20, and many more. It’s ideal for generating calls from radio stations who will interview you via telephone. On each show, you’ll usually be able to tell audiences how to order your book or product.
