The SI Media Podcast is a great source for anyone looking to break into the television business. Richard Deitsch does a great job at interviewing some amazing people both in front and behind the camera who share their own stories and experiences.
This podcast includes talent agents Steve Herz and Matt Kramer. It gives a great perspective from people who are a third party between the talent and the networks. We get a great look at what both agents and networks think of talent and what goes on behind the scenes of hiring decisions. I STRONGLY recommend taking a listen to this podcast and really take what these agents are saying. TV is a visual medium, they will explain that you have to take that into account if you think you want to make a career on air when it comes to your appearance. They will talk about salary structure for those working in the United States comes up between regional and national broadcasts and those who work at SportsCentre in Bristol. You will also hear what might go into a negotiation between a network and an agency when it comes to hiring new talent, what to look for when searching for an agency to work with and if you can actually get hired at a major network without an agent.
Overall, this is a very good listen, enjoy!
