Hello Louis, 

Thank you so much for reaching out! I must tell you, your team is wonderful. 


Thank you for the links, beautiful engagement we have going on. Amazing.

Working with the Best.


For the past several months and in the past several years, I have had the pleasure of working with someone who is truly not only a consummate professional but also a wonderful, kind and very funny individual. Jim Masters listens to his clients. He learns about them. He makes them feel that they are special. It is a pleasure to speak with him. He is a master of his craft. I feel blessed to have the opportunity each week for the past several months to "chat" on topics that I am passionate about. Jim has never corrected me or expressed that my opinions are silly or inaccurate. I appreciate that. We have now become friends. 


When a client ventures to speak there is a commitment involved. Money is one thing but the desire to speak your mind is another. Having someone on the other end encouraging and helping you speak your mind is essential to the experience. I have enjoyed each talk. 


If you are thinking about doing this, I strongly recommend you do. It is empowering especially when you have a person like Jim Masters to help you each step of the way.

Hi everyone,
I wanted to send a quick message to say thank you for the opportunity to interview today! This has been an amazing experience each and every step of the way!
Your entire team has been so thoughtful, helpful, and each of you made me feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. I think it's a wonderful thing that you're doing by providing your platform.  You're offering a great service by helping small businesses like myself gain exposure to reach a much wider audience. I know for sure I'll be able to help many more people to come and it means so much to me to have been featured on your show today.
Again, I am grateful for this opportunity and wish you all the very best with your show and ongoing endeavors!

I realize from Louis’ email that your support is ongoing during the next month as you steer people to my website, in addition to archiving the interview itself. Each of you is so good at your job, and wonderfully warm and welcoming in the process as you expertly go about your work. My appreciation and gratitude are extended also to Jim and to Frank.


Continued success with your work in connecting and uplifting people in such positive ways, with my best of wishes.


Warm regards,

Jim Masters is a real professional, a great interviewer, and a talented producer. Jim interviewed me for 3 radio shows and one video interview through CUTV news. This was the best experience I had in many years! It was a great conversation first, and then - Jim led me flawlessly through my life and memories, which were video-taped. I recommend Jim without any reservations to anyone who would like their books, life, and practice to be unveiled in the best light they deserve!   

Monica Nicoll, Ph.D

Dear Louis,

Thank you for the tremendous opportunity; Jim Masters was very professional and so inspiring himself!  I wish you health in the next many weeks as the world turns in a difficult way.  

All your interviewers were also incredible and so warm.  


I will think about the next steps going forward.

Also, thanks to the rest of the team that makes up Close Up Television - it's been an absolute pleasure!


Stay safe and healthy,

"I have been working with Host Jim Masters for a few months now doing radio and television interviews. His calm, grounded presence sets the tone for relaxed and sincere discussions. He easily relates to situations that I am presenting. Jim remembers experiences I have talked about previously and will weave them in and out of our discussion topics. He is professional, sincere and kindhearted--well suited for his role in communicating people's stories which help enrich the lives of all listeners/viewers."

Thank you!  


Doug made everything so easy.  It was quite an experience.  It was also far easier than I imagined to have a conversation about my work, thanks to Doug’s easy manner, CUTV’s prep team, and writers.


Thank you for everything you have done to help me, answer questions, and make this happen.


Warm regards,

With help from my launch team the book went from #854 to #37 in our category, reaching #1 new release. Exhausting day!

"I have the honor to work with Jim through his amazing hosting of CUTV News Radio. Jim is a masterful host who intuitively knows how to guide the story, pick up on the subtle direction that a story is going and to help guide it in the direction that all who are listening can easily follow along and understand. Jim puts his talk show guest at ease with his conversational style of interviewing and is always a pleasure to work with. He is witty, charming and always engaging; a true professional and a master at his art; I always look forward to working with him."

I want to thank all of you for my radio show.  The hours you took, Beatrice, to make this work, was important groundwork for a successful show and your ability to allow me to feel at ease is a wonderful gift that you have.

As a team, all of you made it a wonderful experience and I think it came out just fine. I wish all of you the greatest successes and fruitful lives. You do amazing work for others who need to get out their messages. I will definitely recommend your broadcasting and radio show to others.


Thank you and the Best,

Dear Lou (and Team),

I am grateful to all who helped recruit, schedule, prepare and conduct my radio interview today with Jim.  I was kept well informed, provided all the details on what would happen when. I very much enjoyed my time with Jim - a true professional - and enjoyed our 30 minute discussion on what I do and have to offer others.


Many thanks to all.  CUTV is a professional run organization - that is abundantly clear from my experience so far!!


I have a book coming out in the coming months.  Jim shared with me additional opportunities that may be of interest to me that I will explore in the coming months as well.  Ann and I are looking at a second radio interview once I get closer to the book publishing as that would be the focus on that engagement. My first objective is to get this next book to the printing press!!


I will be anxious to see metrics on who listened to the interview, who read the press release, who hit the link to my web site from the CUTV broadcast, and any other feedback on how this interview may have been exposed to others.


I loaded it up on my web site minutes ago - so I am cookin right now!


Again, my thanks to all.

Hello Lou,

Thank you for the opportunity to be interviewed by Jim Masters again this morning.


I am delighted with the experience and his interview. I felt like I could connect with him this time. We had a bit more time prior to the show to build rapport and that made a huge difference to me.


Create a great day,

Dear Jim,
I just have to tell you that people who listened to our interviews really enjoyed your style. They found it smooth and pleasant, friendly and entertaining. It was a pleasure for me as well.

It is an honor for me to recommend the outstanding work of Jim Masters. As Nova Biologicals, Inc. continues to expand its presence in the testing laboratory marketplace Jim is bringing an incredibly high level of insight and energy to our business development activities. He is consistently working with us to deliver a comprehensive, yet user-friendly, message of technical excellence, regulatory compliance and customer service. I am especially impressed by Jim's ability to interview people by engaging them in meaningful conversations about highly technical subjects. As Jim continues to significantly contribute to Nova's growth I am looking forward to working with him to broadcast Nova's message of "Complex Science / Simple Solutions" to many new audiences.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Jim about the work that I do in my unusual energy psychotherapy practice. He conveyed sincere interest in what I was doing, and was very adept at drawing me out to talk about it. He spent time before the interview getting to know me a bit and making sure I felt comfortable -- the interview itself felt more like a fun conversation with a good friend. I look forward to working with him again!

Melissa Porterfield

I had the pleasure of interviewing with Jim twice- once on CUTV Radio & the other on CUTV News. Having never been interviewed in either format, Jim put me at ease immediately and both were very positive experiences. 

In addition to his high level of professionalism, Jim is warm and easy to talk to. You can tell immediately that he is a seasoned journalist with a heart. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

I interviewed with Jim twice during September 2018. Interviews can be challenging at times, but Jim made our conversation natural and easy. I was able to talk about my work and my new co-written book Revolutionize Your Health. The conversation was professional, yet relaxed and pleasant for all concerned - including our listeners.

Dr. Val Kendall 

I have done three on-air interviews with Jim Masters and found him to be a well-experienced, excellent host and interviewer. He is more than competent. He is charming, sensitive, adaptable,and elegant, and his education, knowledge, and languaging are impressive. He puts one at ease prior to the show, he can pickup at any place, where the interviewee may pause, even when that interviewee forgets what the question was, and with his fantastic memory and listening skills, he can recall and dovetail into the next section smoothly and effortlessly. Jim has a cultured voice, pleasant to which to listen. After the show is over, he calls to relay his confidence in what just occurred and bolster the interviewee's confidence also, letting one know that one is still of interest regardless of whether or not more business may ensue. My sense is he is a kind man and I have no hesitation in recommending Jim in his engaging occupation, and that's what Jim is, engaging.

Please give my regards to everyone.

Working with Doug Llewelyn, Beatrice, Bob, Lou, Evelyn and Frank at CUTV News Radio to promote my book Chronic Pain Control: Altering Reality in August 2018 was a Joy. These are very sincere, caring and kind people and they are making a huge difference in the world. Their purpose is to enhance the success of those who want to help others.  Questions and concerns were addressed right away with patience and professionalism, always sprinkled with a healthy dose of (we're in this) togetherness.

Beatrice helps clients write their press release. She obviously cares deeply that her guidance and direction help clients present the best about what they have to offer. Time wasn’t an overriding pressure or negative distraction, because our goals mattered most. It was a wonderful and rewarding experience.

It was an honor to be interviewed by Doug. He was wonderful to work with. He was fun and relaxed, so I felt more at ease. I don’t know if he realizes it, but our visit was inspiring for me. He sparked in me the courage to take the next major step that is necessary for me to effectively get the word about Chronic Pain Control. Thank you, Doug.


Doug Llewelyn, Beatrice, Bob, Lou, Evelyn and Frank all radiated warmth and friendship as they welcomed me into their extended CUTV News family.  It was such a privilege to meet and work with these wonderful people. I repeat ‘wonderful’ because it really was such a great experience. My life is made better just from getting to know them. Thank you!

I was awed by his professionalism, insight and outright charm! Not only is his on air presence impeccable but his talent behind the camera was invaluable to our project. Jim produced our video, interacted with my staff giving them the needed tips for filming and worked tirelessly with our cameraman to ensure every shot was flawless. Whether he's in the studio or on location, his talent is obvious and only comes with experience. Jim put my entire team at ease when on location for our company shoot and he made our production one we are proud of and can use for years to come! "

"Jim and I did a two part interview series about my book The Unspoken Truth A Memoir and the Journey that I have been on through healing and my advocacy work. Jim had a wonderful sensitivity about himself as we took a walk back in time. He was extremely caring and professional all wrapped up in one. There was some strong subject matter attached to my story, and Jim was respectful/compassionate as we dug into my past. I would highly recommend Jim for a strong interview as he carries a great confidence level when he speaks, and really listens to what others are saying. I enjoyed our time together and would gladly interview with him again. Our interview together drew an abundance of positive attention to my story."

Dear Lou,


I know this is way later than I wanted it to be. After my interviews, I was extremely busy; and when I had down time, I totally spaced this request from you. Here is my testimonial for the interviews with Jim Masters in November 2017.



I truly enjoyed speaking with Jim about my books and my being the Reluctant Readers Friend. I felt like we were old friends getting together to catch up. It was a pleasure to have those two 30-minute sessions with him. After the interviews, all printed copies of my books were sold out and ebook sales are climbing. Thank you so much. In addition, I was contacted by another radio news service (who heard the interviews) about addressing a huge audience with my own radio show to help parents, grandparents, educators, and friends with their reluctant readers because of my experience as a reluctant reader, which was revealed during the interviews with Jim. The show will launch later this year. I am so excited to have this opportunity to make my platform public to help as many people as I can. That is all because of your interest in my writing career and addressing reluctant readers. Thanks for the push in the right direction.


I hope this is what you are needing. Thanks, Lou.

Hi Jim, just wanted to say many thanks for a terrific time over the last two days beginning with our wonderful dinner and then today’s superb interview. Things all around could not have gone better.

Leona and I went for a drive afterwards and decided to have a late lunch at an outdoor barbecue place that specializes in seafood. It was yummy and then eventually back to the hotel where we will stay but crash out early after a great day.


Thanks again for a special experience.

Hi, Jim!

What a great show! I think it's one of our best, if not the best. 
I just wanted to continue--that's what I like about doing shows with you, it feels more like a conversation than an interview. 
So much fun!

Next week I know I'll be talking to Doug, so catch you the week after!



Loretta Herrington Director, AUI Program at World Institute on Disability

These videos are fabulous Lou.  Frank is worth every dollar he’s paid – a pro!

Let me know what the next steps are now that the videos are up.  Today I approved Beatrice’s article she beautifully wrote.  I very much enjoyed working with her.  You have an exceptional team.

Many thanks, Loretta

Loretta Herrington Director, AUI Program at World Institute on Disability


I began working with Jim in the Summer of 2017 and we continue to work together. From the start, I knew I found a pro - Jim is a television and radio personality who does whatever it takes to conduct his interviews with sensitivity and genuine interest...a rarity today with instant communications and social media. 

Jim has a gift that gives him the ability to bring out the very best in his interviews and from the person he is interviewing. I should know, as someone who has written her first book, I was relatively new to the world of how to promote my book. Thanks to Jim, I am more confident and prepared to expand my horizons. I know that 2018 will be a remarkable year for me!

Lorlett Hudson Executive Leadership Coach

Awesome interview with Jim Masters yesterday. He is a keen listener who connect with his clients. We danced in the conversation with each other with freedom and ease and time just went by. It was a great experience sharing with Jim who is a great communicator. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who his seeking an authentic host or interviewer.

Thanks fpr providing the link. I'll include it in my Christmas cards, facebook page.

and,  also, website when it returns to the internet. I like working for you. Masters is a

very congenial host, I enjoyed his measured and studied manner.


I'm glad that I can contribute something towards the support of feminist goals. My goal

is to provide a deeper understanding of women's past contribution to a peaceful, working society. 

We have made important technological advances but we have yet to create a peaceful; society

that lasts for thousands of years like the  Paleolithic/Neolithic Goddess societies of

our ancestral sisters.


Dr. Madelyn Blair

Thank you, Lou. 


FYI - today’s show was awesome. Doug is masterful.

Thank you.

Jim, what a pleasure working with you. Your invitation to stay in touch will be honored for sure. I know that questions will arise where I will value your insights. And I am always open to you for ideas, comment, support, or whatever. I treasure our relationship very much. I want also to say again my reaction to your interviewing. I really felt safe to let you ask as you wished, knowing that you would work to achieve the objectives I wanted to accomplish. I have friends where I feel this way, because I have known them for years. For someone like you, someone I met so briefly before the shoot, that's rare as you know. 

Sincerely, Madelyn

I find myself saying "oh I should have said this or that" but I am sure it will be great when finished in production. My husband certainly enjoyed to entire experience too! We Loved entire trip and had so much fun exploring your area of Connecticut! Thank you again to Rena and Rob too!

I had the recent honor to be interviewed on the radio and in person by Jim Masters. Jim was a professional in every way and took time to get to know me first before the interview began. This allowed for an easy rapport and the interview felt like a friend talking to a friend. Jim's preparation and his depth of research prior to meeting me ensured an amazing, thorough interview which I'm sure will resonate with the audience. It was a pleasure to work with Jim!"


Are you nervous, wanting to get your voice out but.... Jim Masters takes all the BUTS away. How ? He talks with you, asking insightful questions in such an intimate open way before you know it he has captured you as you shine- you at your very best for the world to hear and see. There is no better guide by your side than Jim Masters" - Dr. Sydney Scott and The Alchemist Professors.


I have had the pleasure of working with Jim on both a video interview and a series of radio interviews through CUTV News. Jim is an excellent host; making you feel comfortable and at ease, creating questions and dialogue that facilitate the conveyance of the material to the listeners – which is great. He has a natural curiosity and generally wants to understand what you do and how the listeners can benefit. I highly recommend working with Jim if you have the opportunity".


Hi Louis: 

happy weekend! I would like to thank Barry for calling me yesterday and talking to me about my background. He was very professional and supportive while conducting the interview. I look forward to the background write up and to continue the journey further. 

thank you again for this opportunity and kind regards,
~ Ewa 


Thank you so much, Louis!
I really appreciate the fast response.
Yes, I'm doing well. My practice is starting to expand. I may reach out to you for another interview at some point in the future. Just not ready yet.
I hope all is well with you and all the CUTV staff. You guys are great!

Best regards,



Working with Doug and Jim was such a pleasure. Both are very professional and easily put me at ease. I especially connected well with Jim. He just seemed like an old friend. I look forward to listening to many of their future shows and will be recommending their shows to my contacts as well.

Thanks so very much, 


Thoroughly enjoyed my conversations with Jim, and with Doug Llewelyn last week. An all-around positive experience.

Thanks again. 



Thanks Lou.

I enjoyed my time with Jim and appreciate having the opportunity to be part of your group. Thanks so much.

Kind regards, 


Thanks Louis,
I have been posting it and getting great feedback!


Dear Lou, 
Greetings from New York! 
Thank you! 
I loved working with Jim! 
Life is good. 

I want to thank you for the terrific experience I had with CUTV. I just completed the 2nd conversation which was with Jim Masters, who I can’t speak highly enough. Jim has an authentic and warm style which made the conversation flow beautifully! You can tell he is really interested in his speaker and thoughtful as he speaks. Really enjoyed working with him.

I have one request - I see I do not have a picture next to my archived interviews. I would like to have one there- so I have attached one to this email. if you could see that it gets up there -I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you again very much for everything - was a lot of fun! Happy holidays!

 Good Morning Lou,
Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed being interviewed by Jim Masters yesterday. I found him to be so amicable, pleasant and a joy to interact with! 

As for my own personal experience, Jim truly created a comfortable milieu and set at ease all concerns related to the delivery of my preparations! In fact, Jim was so very gracious and accommodating to the entire experience that I am truly grateful that he was radio host yesterday and will again be on December 15th.

When will yesterday's radio show be achieved? I looked for it on the CUTV News site earlier this morning and did not find it. Is it your procedure to post only after the two interviews have been completed?

Thanks for your time!
Have a wonderful day and a good weekend!

Dear Lou,

RE: Katherine Trinity – Spiritual Alchemist, Energy Healer and Teacher
November 4th CUTV News Talk Radio Interview with Jim Masters

I am writing this letter to highly compliment Jim Masters. 
He truly is a ‘Master’ interviewer and well seasoned in his craft.
I found his style of interviewing very engaging with the ease and comfort of having a conversation with an old soul friend.

I liked that he didn’t just ask basic scripted questions, but that he wove the questions into the interviewing conversation, which enabled me to communicate the information that was most important to share. Although I know he is a pro... and he has a similar style with the many people he has interviewed, I felt a genuine sincerity and interest of engagement from his part.

I also enjoyed our post interview conversation and am very much in alignment with his humanitarian causes and interests! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with Jim.


Dear Lou,

THANK YOU so much for the opportunity to have been interviewed by Jim Masters on CUTV News today. It was the most enjoyable and, I believe, successful interview I’ve ever had—and I’ve had a few. He made me feel so relaxed talking about my book (Laugh Your Way to Real Estate Sales Success) and life experiences and brought out information that I really wanted to share.

He obviously cares about showcasing his subjects in the best light and even took the time to call me afterward to chat and let me know that we did great—a lovely courtesy, since most interviewees would wonder (and worry) about how they performed.

I will definitely be back for more Jim Masters interview when I complete my next book. If I were to rate Jim’s interview skills, I’d give him a 20 out of 10!



  "I had an opportunity to be interviewed by Jim Masters on CUTV News Radio. What an awesome experience. Jim took the time to connect with me before we went live on the air. . By the time we went live on the air, I felt like I was talking to a life long friend, which allowed me to just be myself minus the nerves. Thank You Jim...such a pleasure working with YOU!"

  Dear Lou and Barry,

You both played a significant role in my life this past year! Thank you for all your patience, encouragement and time spent devoted to me and my goal to speak to a larger audience. 

I look forward to watching my life expand into my soul's mission to teach others what I have learned and experienced in my life. Thank you for being such an essential part of it!

Christmas blessings to you both!

Hello Louis,
Thank you very much for having me on the show, for your follow-up call and all the links you sent me.
I appreciate being on the show very much and hope I can so again soon.
Best wishes and Regards,

Thanks so much, Doug for your guidance and energy during our interview! It was such an honor and pleasant experience being on CUTVNEWS radio with you!



I cannot tell you how much fun it it to finally get to tell the public how great Civil Mediation is, how good it is for the general public, how much it could help them, and how easily accessible it is to them. After trying to do this on my own for about 20+ years, after just 1/2 hour on this great show I reached more people than I ever have. I can't wait for my next 2 shows, the next one tomorrow Friday, 9May2014 at 3 EST. Thanks for everything!! Always, Linda Liljedahl 

P.S. Also Thanks Twice to Doug for his great questions, guidance and mentoring. I don't think you can have a bad interview when he's the one leading. I'm looking forward to more talks in the future, too.



Thank you Jim for having me on Close-Up Talk Radio and for a fantastic interview! It was awesome! Looking forward to the rest of the interviews this August.



 Thanks so much to Doug for having me on the show yesterday and for a great interview! It was so much fun! Looking forward to my shows in June with Jim!



CUTVNEWS is wonderful! Thanks for letting people share information to help each other.


Hi there - 
Nice thank you from Kathryn Kemp regarding our interviews. Passing along in case you want to use for positive publicity, etc.


Hi Jim, 

After doing 100's of radio interviews, I can confidently say that your interviews have been some of the best I have ever done! 
Your style and depth of questions are amazingly good, clearly a reflection of who you are.Thank you for the rich conversation and your soulful presence in my life today. 

I am so grateful for your authenticity and TRUTH and your desire and passion to seek. 

You are an inspiration for me and for the men of our world. 

I love interviewing with you and look forward to the next two sessions, but even more than that to a continued authentic connection.

Dear Lou,

Thank you so much for the Audio file, I posted it on facebook and Linkedin. I would like to thank you and Elizabeth Adams for this opportunity. I also like to thank Doug Llewelyn for his great presentation on the air. He has an amazing way to conduct a smooth conversation and make me comfortable to reply and put me at ease on the air. I enjoy talking with him.


Dear Lou,

Wanted to let you know that I just had a great conversation with Kevin. We talked about our common value of integrity. He shared ways I can have these sites really work, save money on these sites and not be taken advantage of again. I truly appreciate that! Thanks!!!


Have enjoyed my three interviews with you. Thanks for making it easy.
