Does the word everything do anything for you? Everything. If they need a divorce, we have someone in the office who does family law. If they need a will, we have someone who does wills, trusts, and estates. They oftentimes get personal appearances and they’re compensated for that so we negotiate the personal appearances. We may negotiate the fee. We make sure it’s first class airfare and have to make sure that his or her schedule is okay with what’s going on.
As an example, with Jim Cantore, every personal appearance he makes outside of The Weather Channel we say significant weather accepted because we never when that tornado, that hurricane, that snowstorm is going to come up and he’s not going to be able to do it so that’s a caveat in every one of our contracts.
So it’s different for each person. We had a person at The Weather Channel who against my better judgement told her or actually I told her don’t do it. She was submerged in a car that had crashed and she was going to scuba dive out of it and I said don’t do it, that’s a stupid thing to do I don’t care what the situation is. She did it anyway and she was fine but I tend to be more conservative ’cause I like my people on air forever.
