This is Gordon Burgett writing: Since I was "press" for much of my 20s and 30s, let me point you to things at this site (or that we can do to help you) should you wish to compose copy about the topic, my book, or (heavens forfend) me. (I wrote for newspapers, then sold about 1700 freelance magazine articles, edited several publications, and wrote many how-to books in the journalism field along the way...)
I see three general topics, so let me divide this section into those compartments, then point you to the links that will give you substance in those areas.
Incidentally, if a comp copy of my book would help, let me send one to you. (Just ask.)
At any point should you wish to speak with me, call (800) 563-1454. If I'm out speaking, Linda will either direct you to that number or I will call you back (so please do leave your number, the time zone, and the best time to receive my call...) Or use one of these other means: email firstname.lastname@example.org / fax (805) 937-3035 / mail P.O. Box 6405, Santa Maria, CA 93456.
If you wish to use or download any information in digital form, it's

RADIO or TV
|Since I primarily earn my living by speaking, radio and TV are closely tied to my speaking topics. So a look at the "speaking path" on my website, starting here and linking forward, will show what I speak about. to whom, and much of the content.|
