Why Writing Letters to Cable and TV Networks is Important by Vivienne Diane Neal

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. When it comes to showing your support or disapproval of a program, writing a letter or sending an email can make a difference if a good or bad show will become a success or a failure.

How often do we hear people say, “That series was excellent, or that show was insulting?”  Networks and sponsors count on viewers, and they need to receive letters of praise and complaints of condemnation.

Many people do not realize how important writing a letter is, which can determine if a good or bad show remains on TV/Cable.

You can sign petitions, but writing a personal letter and sending copies of that post to the companies that sponsor those programs will put the decision-makers on notice.

Producers, filmmakers, directors, and networks rely on sponsors who look at the profit margins. If viewership is low, chances are the program will be put on hold or canceled. Many decision-makers may never give a new program a chance, to grow a large viewing audience if the show is good.

Let us suppose a major network is planning to produce a reality show that is found to be undesirable, this is where the spectator can exercise his or her influence by writing that letter of disapproval, refusing to buy the sponsors’ products or canceling their subscription to a particular cable or movie channel. Money talks and no money talks.

For every correspondence a person sends to a TV/Cable company, one hundred people will not write. Unfortunately, no one can tell whether those people liked the show or didn’t.

The next time you hear about a negative or positive program coming to your nearest channel, write that letter and encourage others to do the same.

Beware of Mailbox Theft

Mail theft across the country continues to be an ongoing and serious problem. When crooks snatch your mail, they can steal your enclosed checks and also use the information to steal your identity. Following are some tips from the US Postal Inspection Service to help protect your mail from theft:

Do not use public mailboxes. Use the letter slots inside your post office for mail, or hand it to a carrier.

Pick up your mail promptly after delivery. If you are expecting checks, credit cards or other negotiable items and you are away from home, ask a trusted relative, friend or neighbor to pick up your mail.

If you do not receive a check or other valuable mail expected, contact the issuer immediately.

Never send cash in the mail.

If you change your address, immediately notify your post office and other relevant parties.

When you are out of town, notify your post office to hold your mail until you return.

Report all suspected mail theft to a postal inspector at 877-878-2455.
