Letterman Lands Oprah--But Still Can't Get on Her Show
Maybe David Letterman needs a little help from a Media Coach to improve his chances of getting on The Oprah Show.
[ClickPress, Wed Dec 14 2005] On December 1, after 16 years of tiffing, Oprah agreed to be on The Late Show with David Letterman. But Letterman isn't the winner he makes himself out to be. Letterman tried for years to get himself on The Oprah Winfrey Show--to no avail. He couldn't get Oprah to respond to his requests, and for good reason. Letterman didn't know how to pitch Oprah.
Media coach and marketing strategist, Susan Harrow, author of "The Ultimate Guide to Getting Booked on Oprah", and CEO of Harrow Communications, http://www.prsecrets.com and http://www.bookedonoprah.com tried to help David Letterman by sending him her book which explains the subject matter Oprah is interested in and how to get the attention of her producers. You'd think Letterman would know as host of The Late Show. But he didn't. And he wasn't shrewd enough to take Harrow's advice on how to get on the world's top talk show.
Instead, Letterman joined the ranks of frenzied authors, psychologists and anyone who has a sob story, who thinks that getting on The Oprah Winfrey Show, will make them an instant millionaire and perhaps an overnight celebrity. Though Letterman has the bucks and the fame he still couldn't claim that he'd been on the #1 talk show in the world.
So Letterman hasn't really accomplished his goal. And now Oprah has trumped him again by accepting his invitation to be on his The Late Show--ostensibly to make up. The queen of daytime TV has succeeded in promoting her play, "The Color Purple," which opens on Broadway, while still maintaining her dignity. Can't say the same for Letterman.
Maybe Mr. Letterman could use a little help to improve his chances of getting on The Oprah Show. As a media coach and marketing and publicity expert Susan Harrow says she could help him with everything "from his pitch to his hair."
