My Integrity Talk Radio show has been featured in a new resource called the "Directory of Self-Help Talk Radio Shows." You will find this resource useful if you are interested in being interviewed on talk radio shows that focus on self-help. If this isn’t you (or someone dear to you), feel free to skip this blog post.
This ebook was compiled by talk radio advocate Francine Silverman, author of the 2009 National "Best Books" award-winning "Talk Radio Wants You: An Intimate Guide to 700 Shows and How to Get Invited (McFarland & Co. 2009)."
If you’re a psychotherapist, self-growth specialist, or life coach, and are promoting something (a service, product or informatonal website), radio shows are a great source of free publicity. You see, most radio show hosts need guests in order to keep their listeners interested in tuning in. Because of this, it’s generally a lot easier to get a guest spot on radio than to get newspaper coverage. And, more often than not, the radio host will mention your book, business and website several times during the interview. Best of all, with radio you don’t have to travel because interviews are conducted over the phone. This means you don’t have to leave your office to give interviews. You can even do them from home in your pajamas if you want to.
But, here’s the rub: it can be a real hassle to find the right radio shows to contact. Traditional radio directories list many different types of shows rather than concentrating on specific genres. Most radio show websites don’t provide the show theme and guest selection criteria – or even say whether they interview guests.
As an on-line publicist, Francine Silverman knows the kinds of guests that various radio shows are looking for. Her "Directory of Self-Help Talk Radio Shows" ebook contains the most vital information a potential show guest needs: show title and theme, guest selection criteria, name of host, website, best method of contact, email, phone (when it’s okay for you to make an inquiry by phone), and where aired.
Francine’s "Directory of Self-Help Talk Radio Shows" ebook lists 36 Internet and terrestrial (traditional air waves) radio talk shows featuring guests who talk about:
- Personal and professional goals
- Gowth and empowerment
- Emotional Freedom Techniques (and other innovative self-help methods)
- Living one’s calling
- Making for a better world
- Transforming your life
The "Directory of Self-Help Talk Radio Shows" ebook is only $12, and includes five free updates (that is, the next five new self-help shows Francine adds to this directory).

PPS. Please be aware that if you’re a self-development specialist and are not yet seasoned at giving radio interviews, there’s a lot more to giving a successful interview than just getting booked. As a seasoned guest myself, I (Dr. David Gruder) would be happy to consider coaching you in how to become an in-demand guest.
