Transportation Communications Newsletter

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 – ISSN 1529-1057

Transportation Radio Interview and Topic Suggestions

I hope you've had a chance to listen to my Transportation Radio reports.  While I have some upcoming reports planned, I'd also want to ask for your suggestions for interviews.  For the TCN the subject should relate to some aspect of transportation communications.  If it's appropriate, I also link to the reports in other newsletters I edit. 

The interviews can be done by phone so interview subjects can be anywhere in the world.  The interviews typically run under ten minutes and are then edited into a report of less than four minutes.  If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact me at bernie@bwcommunications.net.
