What’s working…

Good transitions from story to story.  Greg leading more.
Good topic mix: from Paris to Syria to local, and back.
Going forward…
1) Make each topic more of an event, like it’s a lead thing.  There’s a lot of “uh, let’s see, something else going on.”
.
2) Intro guests by topic, not guests.  Even (especially) when it’s charity and public service.  Less “David van Wild is here to talk about…” and more “Black Friday is such a weird thing…you feel do materialistic but how can you not want the 8 foot plasma Tv for fifty bucks…we figured it out…”  Always about content, and you always in control of that content.
.
3) Reset during longer topic segments and interviews.  Three seconds.
