With over 20 years in the literary publicity field-and countless successful radio and podcast campaigns under my belt-I've earned the respect of authors, publishers and media outlets. When I commit to a campaign I will:
Work closely with clients and radio stations to design effective campaigns
Utilize my extensive database of radio contacts and research tools
Target specific markets, formats and demographics as needed
Use social media for greater promotional impact
Monitor news, holidays, surveys/studies, world events, etc for timely tie-ins
Monitor and provide feedback on interviews
A FEW GOOD WORDS ABOUT STEVE
"I have worked with Steve for 4-5 years. I count on him to send get clients my way and he always delivers. When my next book comes out, he is the one I will hire. He is super organized and knows what I need to make my job easier. I recommend him without reservation. Great guy."
--Jim Beach, host of nationally syndicated "School for Startups Radio"
It was a pleasure working with Steve. He was very professional and competent in his field - quick to arrange interviews, available and accessible at all times, and very considerate. In promoting my latest book, he ensured good matches between the topic of my writing and the interviewers, and always cheered me on, unobtrusively, with words of support. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Steve as a publicist.

Steve Becker is a dream to work with because he's a total professional. He understands my expertise and his pitches to the media are always relevant and often tied to a current news event. When I'm a guest on a radio show--and he's booked me on some top shows--I feel prepared and confident that the show is a great fit for me. I also appreciate his follow-ups to see how I felt about the experience. Steve is just a great publicist and I can't recommend him highly enough.

It's great to work with a professional who gets results, but on top of that, Steve is well-respected by people on both sides of the mic. It was nice to hear from producers time and again that they often book Steve's guests since they know they'll be good. We are lucky to have had his help!
