About Briggs on Books

Thank you for your interest in our talk show Briggs on Books. Appearances are free. As we work with limited staff, we try to do all of our communications through the email:


Central Valley Talk has been broadcasting since 2008 as a regional network in California's Central Valley. We have 20 live talk shows each week including The Central Valley Wedding Show, Central Valley Real Estate, Central Valley Business, Authors & Artists, Aca Entre Nos! (Spanish) and Mike & Athena Live!. We also make our network available to those that would like to have their own weekly talk show on any subject. We broadcast live from the Mike Briggs Properties Building in Fresno's historic Tower District.

Our Authors Talk show started as a Central California regional talk show. Covid forced us to learn new technologies to survive. Zoom Remote Interview technology has allowed us to expand to include authors from all over the world. In May 2023 we re-branded the author's show to Briggs on Books.

Mike Briggs holds Master's Degrees in History and in Music History and is a retired professor teaching in each of his Master's disciplines. He is also retired as a member of the California State Legislature. He is an avid reader and occasionally reviews books. He hosts the show, Briggs on Books Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11:00 am, 12:00 or 1:00 pm (California time).

There is no cost to the guest for the interview spot. There is a low cost option to have the videos posted to Social Media.
