Where can you find talk about cleavage, Jay Leno, Minnesota legislators, and the Special Olympics in one place? At 12-3pm Central Time when I hosted Midday Live on WCCO Radio. The station is conducting auditions for a new host.
I had a blast. I hope my guests and listeners did too. Feel free to e-mail me with your comments: email@example.com. I’d love to hear from you. And better yet, listen Thursday for day two. Call in. Your voice and opinions will be heard. They’ll be listened to, and you may even get answers to pressing questions. MN Speaker of the House, Margaret Anderson Kelliher, answered callers’questions about taxes, the state deficit, and who paid for her trip to watch President Obama give his address to Congress Tuesday night. Listeners heard it in her words and got to interact with her. An employee at a local non-profit got the chance to ask former Minnesota Viking Matt Blair business advice. Then we gave her the opportunity to get airtime to plug her organization.
You never know what can happen on the radio. That’s why live talk shows are so unique. They’re real time with real people. Some funny comments with some reality checks were the order of business when an HR professional talked about enforcing dress codes as companies deal with cleavage issues. And of course, Neal Justin of the Minneapolis Star Tribune never lets you down with some laughs when you want to talk about media as well as comedians. So all in all, this host is happy. I hope you’ll listen Thursday when I’ll be back. And if you miss the live shows or want a re-run, check out the Midday Live page at wccoradio.com to hear some podcasts from the shows.
