Talk is hot! Talk is also widely diverse. Getting a handle on what’s on the minds of other listeners around the country is a tough job. The results have proven fascinating to your listeners. Every week The TalkRadio Count Down Show, with host, Doug Stephan, surveys a wide variety of people “in and outside the industry” to determine what’s uppermost in the minds of your listeners.
Open phones, intriguing guests and regular contributors, make The TalkRadio Count Down Show fast moving, entertaining and informative. It’s done in cooperation with Michael Harrison, of Talkers Magazine “the Bible of talk radio”.
Unlike music countdown shows, that just play the music and add a position to it, The TalkRadio Count Down Show often brings in the people who made the issues important or popular. That’s a keypoint–POPULAR! We deal with all the issues that make life interesting each week. Silly is just as relevant as serious. If the top topics are about dumb stuff, we’ll report it. If it’s about politics (hard to separate the dumb stuff from that) we’ll report that too. When it’s very serious, like the World Trade Center attack, we’ll treat it with the depth, sensitivity and respect it deserves.
