In 2012, I became the producer and host of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce’s weekly podcast, The Voice of Manhattan Business. As we were working on building up demand to be on the show, I made the decision to end my own podcast, Bruce Hurwitz Presents! Given that we achieved that goal and are booked through mid-March with only 17 slots available for 2016, I am pleased to announce the relaunch of Bruce Hurwitz Presents!
The New Bruce Hurwitz Presents!
In the past the show was focused mainly on career issues, business, veterans, authors and Ph.D. candidates. Now the show is open to anyone with an interesting story to tell, as long as it is neither racist nor pornographic.
All guests will receive a link to the show which they can use for marketing purposes. A few minutes following the conclusion of the show, guests will be able to receive code to enable them to place the actual interview player on their websites and the link so that it can be included on their LinkedIn profiles. Additionally, they will be able to download a copy of the interview to store on their own systems. Listeners will be able to phone-in to ask questions.
In case it needs to be said, my competitors – career counselors, executive recruiters, and publishers, are welcome to be on the show.
The Application Process
If you are interested in being interviewed, e-mail me using the subject line “Bruce Hurwitz Presents,” at firstname.lastname@example.org including a phone number where you can be reached (and please note your location so that I don’t call you at an inappropriate hour). Keep the e-mail simple: Give me a title for the show (less than 80 characters and spaces); a brief explanation about the topic, links to relevant websites, and your bio focused on your credentials to discuss the topic (no more than a total of 300 words) which will be used for promotional purposes; and the message you want to get across to our listeners so I will know how to focus my questions. If you so choose, you may include photos to be used in the promotion and to which you may refer during the interview.
The Nature of the Show
As in the past, this is not a “gotcha” program. No one has ever or will ever be embarrassed by me. That said, you have to know your stuff! You will not receive the questions in advance as this will be a real conversation. At the conclusion of the interview, you will be able to give out contact information. Additionally you may sell your products and services as long as you provide a special discount to listeners. (I suggest you listen to some recent previous shows to get a feel for my style.)
The show, which will be recorded live at a mutually convenient time, will run for no more than 30 minutes. There will only be one guest per show. There is no charge for participation.
I look forward to receiving your proposals!
