Sample text

Please cut consultants and program directors some slack. ” And that mood is not on a reliable, methodical timetable. When I was an air talent, I never understood that things happened on their time, not mine. Don’t Rush Me Programmers generally listen to new material when they are in the market for talent. It would be nice if stations’ needs always coincided with hosts’ availabilities. Unfortunately, it seldom works that way. Sometimes PDs miss their chance at a great hire. I once did a talent search where I listened to dozens of shows I had stowed away, and found a young guy I really liked.

Programmers, consultants, station group heads, and everyone else who can actually hire you are very busy men and women. Consultant Jaye Albright explains, “It takes time to do justice to material people send. ” Talent is very sensitive. If a talent calls a programmer, sends a demo, calls again to follow up but doesn’t hear back, he or she is likely to get discouraged. My advice? Don’t be. Jock auditions tend to be three to five minutes long, and they arrive by the pound. Many of the people who send them have at least some experience, though not always.

I’m listening. ” So, how can you use formatics to get those extra five minutes? Invite. Don’t tease. And invite like you mean it. Invite a mere five minutes ahead. ” Keep something up your sleeve by inviting with a “hook” that tells your audience what’s in it for them. Invite frequently. ” For example: n n n n At the top of the hour, invite across the news and make people feel included in what follows the news, or promote what we’re about to learn in the news.
