    This is Desiree Taylor on behalf of radio listeners. A few tips for announcers. Sincerity and voice technique is one thing that you cannot fake at all. Sincerity is something thing that you have to have it or you don’t. You can smile; you can do these little things that really enhance how you’re going to sound. Especially to the listeners. Its one thing, when we’re sharing a medium like television right now, but when you’re communicating with someone on the radio, they’re listening to you. You may be talking to a whole lot of people, but it’s one at a time. And you’ve got to have that sincerity. The way that you address the clients shows your character, you’ve got to know your audience. And with mic technique as well. We all want to have that big, bassy voice (Jeez – but this Kyle sounds more like a hermaphrodite), but you’re stuck with what you’re blessed with. But once again, listeners do really care too much about that. They want to hear someone that they feel comfortable listening to. Someone that has that sincerity, that friendly voice, someone that they can listen to. Because they have that friendship, they have that bond with you. They’re going to listen to you for a long time. You’ve got to have that voice for radio. It works, and that’ll keep you going for years to come. So please get a decent announcer. You’ll definitely get some tips from 2SM. Even if you listen to 2SM for 5 minutes.

    As for Hamish & Andy. One of them sounds like they are speaking through the nose.
