What To Work On…

Keep moving forward.   People only listen for 10-13 minutes at a time, so its better to not reference anything that happened previously on the show unless you fully reset it.  Just move forward.  (Reference to a news story 9 minutes earlier)

Keep it moving fast; faster if you’re light.  A whole first segment was flip phones and pop tarts.  Both not bad as light topics, but they felt longer than you intended them to be.  When the topics are more serious, say everything you have on a particular angle and move on.  Because of the 10-13 minutes, rotation is more important than length.

Keep listener expectations in mind.  When filling in during the week, people are expecting to hear news of the day, Trump/Hillary, etc.  You have to stay pretty close to those.
