  1. Hi Elizabeth:

    So looking forward to our chat on Wednesday. To be sandwiched between Melanie Jean Juneau and Tony Agnesi, I am truly blessed! I pray that I will live up to their caliber, and give you one absolutely fantastic week! Already cross-promoted your ad on FB and Twitter.

    My guess is that you have an e-mail that goes out to your guests in advance of the air date with the specifics. I will be on the lookout for it..
