A+E is developing a new, exciting short-form project for the History Channel which will air across multiple platforms, including digital and linear. The network is currently searching for smart and outgoing history experts who are quick on their feet and have their finger on the pulse of relevant hot topics to be a part of a rotating panel of hosts / experts. On the show, historians will come together and discuss the headlines - and if it is just history repeating itself. The show will film in NYC, but is open to applicants from across the country; travel expenses will be provided for those out of the area if cast. If cast, there will also be compensation!
Interested in applying or hearing more about this opportunity? Contact Cara Weissman at [masked] and include your name, location, profession, why you would be a great addition to the panel of experts and the best phone number to reach you.
I know many of you are veteran personal historians but for those of you who are new and are interested in becoming a personal historian we have a deal for you.
What is a personal historian you ask? We are an group of professional memoir writers, oral historians and video biographers.... and niche providers of photo organizing, scanning services, photo album creation and various other memory related artwork and services. We work for individuals, families and small businesses.
Our professional trade association is the Association of Personal Historians (APH) which is just over 20 years old and we have 600 members all over the world.
This month APH is offering an introductory offer to new members. Just $150 for a year of connecting with and learning from people who have been "saving lives one story at a time" for many years. We have an amazing group of very generous people happy to share their knowledge and support. I can HIGHLY recommend this organization. It has proved to be one of the best investments I've ever made.
If you have questions please feel free to contact me at [masked] or[masked].
