So in the interest of national security (joke), I got my hands on the the full Today Show interview conducted by host Amy Robach. The interview is a excerpt from their recent segment with Bodyguard Careers on females in the Executive Protection Industry.
I know after the original piece aired there was a little bit of debate on if female newcomers in the industry should get that amount of exposure. My thought process is that the Today Show viewership for that week was 4,900,000, so that was 4,900,000 that got to hear something positive about our industry as opposed to “bodyguard writes a tell-all” or “Security Contractor Takes a Bribe in Iraq“. That type of positive exposure has got to be good for our community, and acts as a counterbalance to all the negative stereotypes.
