Newstalk Radio Problem Solved

Try using professional broadcasters, not past advisors to anyone or communications specialists, and please do not have anyone with ex in their title unless it ex broadcaster.

Yes, Newstalk radio is broadcasting, and hosting a talk radio takes skill, knowledge and experience. Look at John Moore; despite being stripped of a news department, a sports reporter multi producers and a side kick he still turns in radio worth listening to. This is because he is a veteran broadcaster, not Howdy Doody's ex-chief of staff.

By the way, I have ex-wives that might take a shift or two.   
 Please hold your applause.

Re: Newstalk Radio Problem Solved

Broadcasting companies are hiring journalists from non-broadcast mediums (CBC for example have been hiring former newspaper journalists). While their journalistic chops are real, they clearly need work on how they present themselves on TV and radio. I suppose media companies like CBC thinks that's something they can teach newspaper reporters over time.

Re: Newstalk Radio Problem Solved

Sports radio and television does a brilliant job of finding and turning former athletes, coaches and GM's into legit, expert on-air talent.

Broadcast personalities like Terry Leibel, former equestrian, Brian Burke, former hockey GM, former hockey players Ray Ferraro, Jeff O'Neill, the list is endless.

Mentoring, coaching and most of all not overwhelming the newbie broadcaster goes a long way to getting results.

It's another reason why medium market stations are (probably WERE) valuable.

News talk stations: want to make productive use of the PR professionals you spread over the schedule? Why not concatenate their valuable ideas into a single mega-show. On Sunday nights 23:00 to 04:00. Call it MuffinFest.

Coles Notes version: lawyers often become bestselling authors, actors and comedians occasionally become excellent radio hosts, and over the last few years sports radio seems to be better at finding and developing raw on-air talent then news talk radio. Have a good weekend Stinand.

Speaking of former sports stars who were on air, was this possible? Pete Stemkowski a rock DJ while he was also playing for the Leafs? This is from Nov. 1967.

I have no memory of this, unless they meant he was a sportscaster. But then why would he be meeting with Roy Orbison? Somehow I can't see him taking a jock shift. But stranger things have happened, I suppose. I would love to hear an aircheck with him on it.

Nifty news, well done ESPN, if P.K. does the show prep and doesn't rely on his effervescent charm, he'll, to borrow a hockey term, be a 200 foot analyst.

Athletes and print journalists have to make the switch from pretty much making a living physically with their hands to expressing themselves verbally when they get into broadcasting, and some have a terrific second career.

As a Habs fan, I hope that's the case for P.K.

Jayme Poisson, formerly of the Star,  hosts their news podcast which sometimes airs on Radio One as filler and she does a solid job.
