There are thousands of homeless kids in San Diego. They have been abandoned, subject to abuse, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, and left on the streets alone. Our goal is build a shelter to keep these children safe - a place to call home.
I made a promise to myself this year that I would get involved with worthy causes, I joined this group recently: http://www.stayclassy.org/campaigns/campaign_details.php?cid=1709 please spread the word if your not able to donate yourself.
Good move on your part....why don't we try to get these young people interested in our declining media..they might save the day.
Dick Pyatt Former WNYC Program Director
Releases New Book
Release Date: 2009
“How To Get A Job In Broadcasting Now!“ – A Comprehensive Manual for the Unemployed
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York broadcaster, teacher, and director Dick Pyatt and DPP Productions have released a new book,, entitled “How To Get A Job In Broadcasting Now!” that contains The Amazing Closed Door Secrets of How To Prepare For Your New Job. With the increase in national unemployment and the lost of 5.7 million jobs since the recession began, for young and mature students alike, the days of landing multiple interviews and handsome offers are gone for the moment.
Pyatt reports that in previous times, you’d send a resume and a cover letter and you’d get an interview. No longer, you need to learn the secret of how to make YOU stand out from the rest. So, how can you find a new job when the competition is fierce, with so many being laid off
and companies are downsizing?
How To Get A Job In Broadcasting Now! Is a comprehensive manual that opens up the secrets of one of the most important parts now of getting a job and that is networking. You need someone on the inside to get you that interview. It’s still the same old story of “Who do you know?”
Yes, it’s contacts, contacts, contacts and we tell you how to make them. A whole new world will open up when you realize that a contact can be someone you never dreamed of says Pyatt. But there are many twists and turns now and here is what is unique about How To Get A Job In Broadcasting Now, it is hands down the most thoroughly researched and complete layered step-by-step compilation of what you must do to get the job and get the job done all in one place.
The book includes Top Ten Secrets of the World’s Greatest Cover Letter and the "secret place" where most job-seekers never send their cover letter and resume. We were determined to make this book a collection of job resources, secrets of compelling cover letters, and dynamic demo tapes not only to save people time, but to remove them from the ranks of the unemployed in record time.
Pyatt states that “It is important that talented people get a job in broadcasting today because a democratic society cannot survive without the press. And we have seen at the moment the deterioration of reliable reporting, the poor quality of speech accepted from news reporters, and the bias allowed to go unchallenged.”
The economy sucks right now. Every media site you go to is littered with stories about the pending doom and gloom of the job market. But the truth is if you’re young, smart and motivated, there is no reason finding a job should be difficult adds Pyatt.
Broadcasting is no longer just radio or even TV. Broadcasting now encompasses audio and visual programming that is designed to reach a mass audience,. traditionally only through television or radio, but now, fortunately for more job seekers, broadcasts include podcasts, internet streaming, satellite, HD and other forms of media. We need fresh and inspiring broadcasters.
It is with that in mind that How to get a job in broadcasting was written and the techniques will aide in any field.
A native New Yorker splitting time in Florida, Pyatt , somewhat of a renaissance man, has been a favorite radio personality for over 20 years in New York City as producer and director of programming for WNYC-AM-FM radio and host of a weekly radio feature at WFAS in Westchester. He has also been on the faculty of numerous colleges in New York including Pace University, Elizabeth Seton College and Iona College in New York teaching speech and media.

The best place to send your money for or to support is "STAND UP FOR KIDS". It is a daytime shelter and drug-free zone for homeless youth, from 12 to 25. They provide clothing, computer useage, food and resume help (and much more). Thanks, Bill.
