Most TV stations are looking for this type of hands-on information and are happy to feature a celebrity you are bringing to town. To arrange an appearance, you will need to set it up with the local station at a time when it can be fit into Tom’s schedule at your show.

A radio appearance, however, is not possible within the listening area of Tom’s current radio station-AM620, WTMJ, Milwaukee. To arrange a radio appearance, you need to contact your local talk radio station and arrange an interview to fit into Tom’s schedule at your show.

Print Media – Newspaper, Magazines, Newsletters, and Advertising
