Folks, my wife is a PR/Media Relations Mgr for the City of Houston and needs some help for a radio host coming in town this weekend. If anyone can help out or knows anyone, please PM me. See below for more details provided by my wife. Thanks!

I have a national radio host coming in town next weekend, and he wants me to hook him up with a fishing guide to take a half day fishing trip Saturday, July 16. Do you have any suggestions? He would like the fishing trip to be comped because he is a member of the media and will mention the guide (phone number, Web site, etc.) on his show. He said he did something similar in Fort Lauderdale and that the fishing company got so many phone calls after his show.


Here’s info on his nationally syndicated show.



While lots of pundits claim to know (and care) what's in the hearts and minds of America's youth, Ben Ferguson IS America's youth. At 21 years old, Ben is the youngest nationally syndicated talk show host in the country.

Ben blends a mix of pop culture, politics and current events in an entertaining and informative way, debating the news of the week from a college-age perspective, while incorporating prominent guests from the political, entertainment, and business worlds.

This caller driven program provides a forum for the vastly under served younger audience of 20 and 30 year olds who care about politics and current events as well as music, movies and sports. Ben's good humored but conservative approach separates this program from the pack of shows aimed at driving ratings through "locker room" humor and stupid stunts. The market of young men and women is not being effectively reached on talk radio today. The Ben Ferguson Show provides a forum for traditional talk stations to reach those listeners and creates a venue for its advertisers that are trying to reach an educated younger audience.

The War on Terror and in Iraq have increased demand among young listeners for substantive, news based programming. The Ben Ferguson Show offers an opportunity to reach those young men and women that are hungry for talk radio that speaks directly to them.

Ben has hosted talk radio programs since he was 13 years old and he has been interviewed by the New York Times, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, and The Chicago Tribune, in addition to appearances on numerous television programs including CNN's Talk Back Live, Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor. ABC's Good Morning America and HBO's Dennis Miller Live.

Ben broadcasts live every Sunday 8:00-10:00 PM EST from the WREC studios on historic Beale Street in Memphis and is syndicated across the country on the Radio America network.

Good luck is right! Even if you could kind find one to do it for free, it wouldn't be for this weekend. All the guides worth a salt have been booked for months, and I doubt they would cancel a paying trip for a free one. A lot of the good guides stay booked, and probably wouldn't view this as an big incentive. Summer is their busiest time of year.

Might be good for a good bs session out on the boat guys - the kid is a conservative. Not too many of them around at 21.
