“I am cheap, I am easy -- and I am always available when I need me”
Kingsland, GA (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
“Everyone is always on the lookout for something fun to do with family or friends on the weekend”, says Joe Talentino, publisher of Coastalcompanion.com. “What is a fun road trip for us or weekend getaway on the coast? Are there any fun festivals, concerts or events going on? Our weekly video podcast gives you suggestions of fun things to do on the coast.”
Joe Talentino is actually a video producer by trade and has over 25 years of extensive experience in video production, broadcast television and multimedia. But now he has switched roles and is most often found in front of the camera as the host of the weekly podcast.
Why did he decide to change? The answer is simple. “I am cheap, I am easy -- and I am always available when I need me”, explains Joe Talentino. More than once Joe has been approached at a store or at a festival by a loyal Coastalcompanion.com reader who recognizes his face from the web site. So far, he hasn’t signed any autographs.
“I am just your “average Joe”, says Joe. “I didn’t start making our show to become an online celebrity. It’s amazing to me that anyone recognizes me -- I never expected that. But I do love my job! I get to travel to beautiful places on the coast, visit fun festivals and talk to interesting people. So if I have to live with stardom and fame in order to do my job, so be it! I wouldn’t trade it for the world!”
