Pam Atherton is a 17-time award-winning radio and television personality, whose guests have included Buzz Aldrin, Madeleine Albright, Ted Kennedy, Weird Al, Willie Nelson and Cher.  Pam speaks across the nation as a keynote and workshop leader about customer satisfaction, business identity, leadership, and dealing with the media.

Hollywood legend Carl Reiner recently said “You are the best at what you do,” and  Swim with the Sharks author Harvey Mackay calls her “truly the best of the best.”  She is the creator of the Business CPR workshops and was recently featured in LIFE magazine.

Working in Los Angeles radio for the Real Don Steele in the early 1970’s, Pam learned radio right. She’s hosted a top-rated morning show, won awards for news, interviewing and creative commercial production, and has an Addy to put on the mantelpiece for her work in television.

“Truly the best of the best!”
— Harvey Mackay

On top of that, she has voiced commercials, industrials, animation, toys, and informericals that have been heard across the nation. She has also appeared on-camera, most recently in the film Believe in Me, starring Bruce Dern and Jeffrey Donovan,

Pam has also hosted a television talk show that aired on both PBS and commercial television stations.  She has headed production and creative service departments, programmed radio stations and lived through an FCC inspection (passing it with flying colors!)

In addition, Pam has media trained some of the top celebrities and experts.  She receives high ratings on a regular basis for her customized and personal training, as well as her online  presence consulting.  A successful writer, producer, and voiceover artist, Pam occasionally pairs up with her daughter on commercials. She currently has a television series in development.

    I hope you’re doing well and had a great weekend. It was great seeing you at Stephen Maitland-Lewis’ book signing at The Bistro Garden a couple months ago.

    My client, Matthew Shaffer is a celebrity choreographer and a published author whose debut book, “So You Want To Be A Dancer” recently launched at #1 in Amazon’s Performing Arts category.

    He can be seen in Netflix’s new series, “Wet Hot American Summer,” in July with Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler.

    Would you be interested in interviewing Matthew? He has such a spirited personality and you will LOVE him on the air! I can send you the book launch press release, Matthew’s bio, clips and photos for your website upon request.

    Thank you, Pam!
