John Rennie – a personal finance and property journalist – was found on www.findatvexpert.com and has been signed up to co-host BBC1’s new property programme The Unsellables with Sophie Allsopp. (Twenty half hour shows for transmission in March 09.)
”I’m still pinching myself”, said Rennie. “Although I’ve done a lot of media work – writing about finance and property investment for local and national papers and magazines – I’d never caught the eye of the TV industry. So when I heard about www.findaTVexpert.com, I paid my £100 yearly registration fee - on the basis that nothing ventured, nothing gained - and four months later I’m filming a new property series for BBC1. It’s a fantastic opportunity and a great return on my investment”, added Rennie.
John is one of many experts who have been found on www.findaTVexpert.com and contacted by TV&Media companies for interviews, screentests, pilots, radio appearances, magazine articles, exploratory chats & PR opportunities. As can be expected from an industry that is hungry for talent, ideas and the next ‘big thing’, the list is long and the areas of expertise are incredibly varied: Abigael San, Doctor of Clinical Psychology; Susan Bishop, Crime Investigator; Lindsay Blackman, Property & Home Staging Expert; Mike Southon, Entrepreneurship & Sales Expert; Mark Williams Thomas, Criminologist; Penny Power, Social & Business Networking Expert; Sue Firth, Stress & Behaviour Psychologist; Peter Aspden, Arts & Culture Expert; Gina Negus, Private Investigator; Georgia Foster, Hypnotherapist – Weight, Alcohol & Sex; Nick McGregor, Stockbroker: Oil & Commodities; Christine Thompson Wells, Money Psychologist; Jim Rees, Extreme Sports & Leadership; Tim Bean, Physique Specialist; Gillian Kavanagh, Aromatherapy & Well Being Expert and many others.
“In the TV business it’s all about exposure to the right people. www.findaTVexpert.com has been a fantastic platform to showcase our expertise and talents to an industry that is almost impossible to penetrate. It’s so exciting when you get the call or email saying you have been spotted”, said Holly & Shirley, the Budget Lifestyle & Fashion Experts who have recently been filmed for a December 08 ITV programme about how to live a fabulous lifestyle with very little money.
”I’m delighted for John and for all the experts who are being found on www.findaTVexpert.com and fulfilling their TV&Media ambitions,” said founder Claire Richmond (an ex TV producer). “TV&Media companies are always looking for passionate and inspiring experts – and now there’s an easy way to find them. So if you’ve got an expertise, you should flaunt it to the industry because you never know what they’ll be looking for next!”
