Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly. I have used this site for years and it helped me to get my first job 3 years ago at ESPN. I am currently working in Los Angeles for FOX Sports Net and I do not need this service right now. I am sure I will use it again in the future. Thanks again. Adam Goldberg
