Inside the Kyle and Jackie planning meetings

The Talent Coach: Craig Bruce

There are many factors that have made the Kyle and Jackie O show one of the best radio shows in the world. 

I wanted to focus on just one of those factors which has been critical to their success. 

I was the content director at 2DayFM in 2005 when the show first started in breakfast and it was my first time working closely with the guys. 

The thing I remember most about the weekly planning sessions was this one question that Jackie would ask at the start of every meeting.

The Talent Coach: Craig Bruce

Breakfast shows are like baby animals in the wild, they have a fair chance of survival as long they don’t get mauled in their first 6 months of life.

This has been difficult for me to write because every time I placed a new CD into a radio station I was always full of hope that he or she would be successful. Unfortunately there were many CDs during my time who despite their best efforts couldn’t do the job.

Behind every radio show is a great producer.

They are the unsung heroes of many a high profile Breakfast and Drive team on major metro stations.

Radio networks have always been known to spend considerable resources on trying to uncover the next breakthrough in on a air talent. But according to Game Changers: Radio presenter Craig Bruce, the hidden battle, that is just as intense, is to find the next brilliant producer.

In this, episode four of Game Changers: Radio, James tells Craig Bruce why he wasn’t cut out for Breakfast.

What is chemistry?

Friday 29 April, 2016

In our industry it’s the $64 question and depending on the market size, I may have missed a couple of zeros in that equation.
In Episode 1 of Game Changers: Radio I spoke to Marty Sheargold about chemistry. Now, before you read his response, just a reminder that this bloke knows a thing or two about developing chemistry with his on-air partners.
