Opportunity for you to be featured on NBC Nightly News: Update

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

Update for information previously provided in my blog post below:

This just in from the NBC Nightly News producer:

“We finally have an airdate. July 13th. I’ve been scrambling with other projects in the meantime. Scott is out til next week so after the holiday we’ll get serious about shooting someone starting a business. I haven’t had a chance to go thru all the candidates you sent, but a few look really promising.


Cross your fingers, folks – i’ve submitted many of you for their consideration.


Here’s the deal: I am appearing on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on June 29 (most likely). They’re doing a cool feature about what happens if you lose or leave your job in this market and how to start a successfull business.

Don’t you love it! And kudos to NBC for focusing on this subject. As i mentioned to them in my taping for the feature, I truly believe that it will be small business and solopreneurs who help America dig out of this slump.

OPPORTUNITY: If you are one of those heroes who has left a job and started up a brick-and-mortar business in this economy, please email me at [email protected].

Please add to the email subject line the following so I’ll know to treat it with urgency:  “NBC Story – I Started a Brick-and-Mortar Business”

Deadline: Tuesday, June 23.

I will then share your email with the NBC Nightly News producer.
