Another pitch meeting just rolled by and although it was a little intimidating, I feel like I know a lot more about how people are finding pitches and what makes a pitch relevant. A lot of students used the internet and stemmed from interesting events they found there, but some just got lucky. One girl even stumbled upon a pitch just from calling a flyer number.
I was so relieved that I had one really strong pitch with the Marconi Award nominated radio host. Even though my other pitch was weak, at least I have something to stem off of. It was nerve-racking to have my editor “yes” and “no” each pitch in front of the class, but nice in the end to hear her tell us she was pleased with what we had brought to the table.
