Pitching Practice

Pitching Practice

New Year's resolution: Pitch early, pitch often, pitch more and pitch well.

Our Pitch Page keeps updated lists of shows and their requirements. Producers put out calls for stories on the AIRdaily. Ann Heppermann, John Haas and Yowei Shaw have some advice about how to pitch well.
