What’s Working…

It is VERY refreshing to hear Dave corral the politics and talk about all kinds of other stuff! (Examples below)

Dave is very good at getting right into the topic (great examples below).

Big difference between Dave Opinion and Dave No Opinion/No Prep

What Needs Some Attention…

Big difference between Dave Opinion and Dave No Opinion!  (Example below)

Dave is very good at starting a topic but slower at getting to his opinion.  What does Dave think??

Sometimes it can take 3-5 minutes for Dave to reach his point.

Recommendations…

1) Just think through where you are going with a topic before you start it.  Have the discipline to do it through an earlier break or the news, and especially even 30 minutes before the show.  This is more of a discipline issue than a prep issue, and the difference on air is huge.

2)  Now that you’re so good at getting to a topic immediately work to get to YOUR opinion almost as fast…30 seconds in, max.  Make that a daily goal.

3) Keep up the variety of topics!  Rapture!  Walmart/Drunks!
