DOES THIS REALLY HELP? IS IT WORTH THE MONEY?
Just look at what some are saying about the help and mentoring they received from Ross Becker:
Kris Van Cleave, Reporter, CBS News, New York
“Simply put, I am where I am today because of Ross Becker. He’s been there every step of the way with advice, feedback and prespective. And, when Ross critiques your work, you walk away with things to think about. Ross knows TV news. His passion for journalism is matched only by his passion to teach it. You will learn more from this man than you will in any college class and most small market newsrooms.”
Wendy Halloran, Investigative Reporter, Salt Lake City
” Ross helped me get out of Twin Falls and into a bigger market. He is the best coach and mentor I have ever had”.
