Travel with Rick Steves
Travel with Rick Steves FUNDER 2010 — HOUR 1 rundown: Option B
This version includes the full hourly network newscast, or a combination newscast/mini pitch break after the billboard, and local pitch breaks of roughly five minutes each.
If you would like to extend the program beyond one hour, you can use any of the second hour pitch modules, or continue with the full second hour.
Rick has also recorded some "generic pitches." One of them is designed to be included in your closing pitch break during Travel with Rick Steves.
You can also 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.
