Charles Adler joins me (Matt Cundill) from his home in Vancouver for an hour to talk radio and political therapy. The Canadian election is on the way and it is all to be Trump Trump Trump on CNN and Fox News. So what’s a media guy to do? We catch up with the wily Corus Radio News Talk host and discuss the early moments of the Federal Election.
Drew Dalby is an excellent interviewer, drive host, football prognosticator and dad. He’s also a good Twitter follow.
Jason Barrett and I started our post-program director adventures around the same time. He had a strong resume as a Sports radio programmer, having worked at mainstays like the Fanatic in Philly, 590 the Fan in St. Louis and 95.7 The Game in San Francisco.
Andrew Beckler is the morning host at X92.9 in Calgary. The station is pretty special in that it started nearly 13 years ago, has only had 1 program director in its time, and has been building it’s audience since 2007 starting with a Hot Hot Heat concert to ring in the New Year in 2008. The station has also had very low staff turnover and developed a culture unlike any other in Canada; comparable only to KNDD 107.7 the End in Seattle. Anyhow – more about Andrew… who was raised in Saskatoon and still sports a watermelon hat and a green jersey
Ryan Wrecker sent me a message earlier this week asking about my take aways from Podcast Movement which took place earlier this month in Orlando.
Sometimes it’s all about the people you have around you. In 2014, Lisa Keys found herself working with people who were passionate about radio imaging and who knew what a great radio imaging voice can do for a radio station.
Genevieve Borne is really talented. I met her in 1992 after a concert and was enamoured with her immediately. She is a bridge to the province I love, and a broadcaster I respect and emulate where applicable.
Terry O’Reilly is a radio guy. He will tell you on the show that he is an ad guy – and that might be partially true. However, it is apparent that when you listen to his take on the world of media, advertising, marketing and radio, that he is grounded in radio.
It sounds easy. Produce a compelling 15 to 20 minute piece of audio every day about a Canadian news story. And then you find out it isn’t easy. For the last year, Jordan Heath-Rawlings has been doing just that with Frequency Network’s flagship podcast, The Big Story
Bob Harris has had an incredible radio journey that has spanned Peterborough, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Hamilton. Along the way it has been about the people. He’ll be the first to admit that he made mistakes along the way and learned on the job through the mentorship of General managers like Rob Braide, the late Gary Russell, Tom Peacock and Pat Holiday. Bob also worked with Canada’s two biggest morning shows in Gerry Forbes in Calgary, and Terry Dimonte & Ted Bird in Montreal
