"You couldn’t have been more professional and knowledgeable handling and securing interviews for us with outlets and shows we would never have even thought of! It was as if one of our own team members was in charge! In fact, we’ve had chapters from all over the country report back to me that they heard the interview with Dan Raviv on CBS Radio Network. I have to say that in all my years managing Children’s Congress, this is the first time that radio has gone so well. I’m glad that your team took our concerns about spotty bookings and inaccurate reporting seriously, and we didn’t once have to question the quality of the interviews booked. I look forward to working with your team again in the near future!"
