Travel with Rick Steves
Travel with Rick Steves FUNDER 2010 — HOUR 2 rundown: Option D
This version includes the full hourly network newscast, or a combination newscast/mini pitch break following the billboard, and local pitch breaks of roughly 6 minutes each.
Don't forget you can include Rick's generic pitch (runs 1:12, vox only) in any of your breaks. It's particularly suited to air near the end of the show, and is designed to be appropriate outside of Travel with Rick Steves, too.
