What’s working…

The energy stays high on both stations, consistently!

Great topic selection on both stations.  Less sports, more topical stories.

There has been some excellent story telling in the last week.  We should do more of this.  It sounds really good.

What needs some attention going forward…

It is still taking too long to get to the “good stuff” in a topic (even though the topic starts are immediate and fast).

I want to hear more opinion from Jamie.  It’s too indirect too often.

There is a difference between sports energy and other story energy.  I want more sports energy on non sports stories more often.

We need more calls.  Not because calls are important, but to add the excitement and tension of a good call who calls the guys idiots or tells a great story.

Recommendations…

1) Jamie’s first appearance in a story should start to reveal his opinion.

2) Scott is great at the timing of a story.  Look for more stories, or have Jordan/Joe cobble together various reports into the form of a story

3) When you look for calls, screen for disagreement and ask for stories and experiences.  Don’t ask “what do you think” ask “what’s your story”.  This will make for much better calls and hopefully more calls worthy of putting on the radio.
