Satellite Media Tours Help Companies Build Their Brands

The pandemic has changed how and where satellite media tours take place. In fact, it’s a lot easier and cost-effective these days.

For years, satellite media tours have offered executives the opportunity to share their message through broadcast stations across the country, all from a single broadcast studio. While the pandemic initially impacted the opportunity to conduct satellite media tours, emerging video technologies have opened up many new possibilities. 

Russell Grant is the principal and founder of Live Shot Media, a one-stop video and live broadcast production company. Russell and his team of broadcast professionals have produced hundreds of radio and television media tours over the past 25 years. These tours have amplified the message of Fortune 500 and industry-leading companies and many non-profit organizations.
