What’s working…

Team chemistry is getting better fast.  Everyone is in their role, almost everytime someone speaks it is easy to follow and makes sense.

Nadia is smiling all the time.  Much better.

Alexis has a lot more control, which is better.  He needs more still.

The new Sexo format is great.   It has great pace and chemistry, and I am sure the tension builds through the question.

 

What needs more attention…

There are still some elements we should NEVER do.  One crank call was nothing more than physical threats and bad words going back and forth.  And one topic of the day was pure swear words, and then you apologized to children listening with their moms.    We have to really focus on what TO do and what NOT to do.

Alexis still needs to take more control, have more command.  Slow it down a little bit and have others ask and suggest to him rather than just jump in.

 

Recommendations…

1) Alexis and Sandra have final approval on prank calls before they air.  They have to make a target listener with children present listen and laugh.   If not, we can’t do them.  Call 1 is an off target call.  It’s the first example below.  Call 2 is a near perfect call.  It’s the second example below.

2) Alexis should not announce and ‘pass’ to a segment other than Sexo.  Instead of saying “ok its time now for Nadia’s Bon Plan” he should say something like “So we found this American app that takes all the food in your fridge and makes a meal” and then Nadia magically continues the sentence.  No intro, no pass, no “yes, that’s right”.    (Bon Plan is the third example below)

3) Everyone has to let Alexis drive.  When we have callers and the Sexo players on he should normally be the first to react and move the content forward.   Most of the time it should be Alexis talking to us, and the team talking to him.  He is the center of attention, and our 29 year old young mom is the center of his attention.
