TIPS FOR APPEARING ON TV:
Clothing: Solid, darker colors seem to look best. Avoid wearing a lot of shiny jewelry.
Hair: make sure your style does not hide your face--especially if the camera shoots you from the side.
Makeup: Wear what you normally would, but remember that the bright lights may make you looked washed out. Lipstick and eyeliner might help!

If you have less than 8 or so "slides," they can be imported into the switcher, and then the camera can switch to them when referenced.They would need to be already arranged in the right order and numbered.
The studio would need those by 11 am that day, Wednesday (along with the way your want your name, title and contact info to appear on the screen). The slides should be emailed as JPEGs, with a resolution of at least 1024x768, a fairly common one for output or input into PowerPoint.With the slides in the switcher, the film crew would need some kind of verbal "cue" to put up the right slide, and when to take it off. Sample comments on the air would be: "now show slide 1" and "that's good.. " (which would mean the camera can come back on you). You can also go back and say "let's go back to slide 3" etc…
