What’s working…

Great mix of local, national, and hilarious topics.

Charlie really starting to come into his role as Chief Reactor.  Even better he often voices the things we notice or think about, so he’s like the voice we wish we had.

Good use of sound.  use more!

What needs more attention…

In the new clock, try breaking up longer topics like politics and campaign into shorter more specific topics.  When you take a whole segment on one issue the segment seems longer than it should.

Charlie’s reactions have to come much sooner, and still be better and earlier prepared.  It still sounds like he’s sometimes talking off the cuff.

Mark think of every setup in terms of “here’s what you need to know” and then almost bullet-point the story as you lay it out. Make it super simple and clear.  Then after Charlie jumps in, expand out.


Audio Examples…

01 Transition from politics to teachers.  This is where a bullet pointed lead would make a difference…

02 Charlie’s great reaction on Iowa.  He’s speaking for us.  This is what should happen right after the story set up (this was about 6 minutes in)…
