American Business Associates, New York & New Jersey’s premier business development organization, is partnering with East Main Media to launch a new weekly television program: Opportunity Calls with Ellen Volpe.

Airing each Sunday throughout the New York Metro area at 11am EST on News12Plus, the program will feature conversations with experts and leaders from a wide range of fields and industries. Along with broadcasting to over 4 million homes, Opportunity Calls can be seen on YouTube and other social media platforms. 

“I’m very excited about this opportunity," Volpe said. "The program will help members get exposure and speak to their expertise at a time that’s very important."

American Business Associates provides a platform for members to meet on a bi-weekly basis, accomplishing much more than just networking. Members gain valuable business intelligence, create long-lasting relationships of trust, and help each other to grow and prosper. “I envision the broadcast to be relaxed, but informative,” Volpe said. “Each week, we will profile top business leaders who will share advice so viewers can gain the same type of intelligence and expertise that ABA members have access to, and have been receiving, for over 30 years.”

 "We're producing an informative, educational and illuminating show for cable television," Brodeur noted. The weekly program will be hosted by ABA President, Ellen Volpe, and not only will feature ABA members on a regular basis, but will also highlight members' range of contacts and influence, bringing together regional business leaders and experts from around the Metro NY/NJ area.

Volpe commented that producing the show provides value on multiple levels. “Personally and professionally, to actually have the experience, is definitely uplifting," she said. And for ABA members, “it boosts their confidence, and it gives people another vehicle to actually add to their development," she added. "To be able to actually promote that and share it with their own spheres of influence, it’s a very powerful tool that definitely makes a splash."

The show will be directed by Brian Brodeur and produced in conjunction with East Main Media Studios led by Senior Producer Kayla Steinmetz and Senior Editor Dave Ammirata. For more information about Opportunity Calls with Ellen Volpe visit
