I was recently interviewed live on Ticker News. A number of conversations were had prior to my appearing, and after the interview, when I requested a copy of the recording, was advised that the minimum charge would be $500 for a copy. At no time prior to the actual interview was any fee discussed or advised. I do regular radio and TV interviews, and at no stage have I ever been asked to pay a fee for a copy of the recording. At the end of the day, they are getting my time and expertise for free. So as a word of warning to others, beware of such hidden fees.
