On air talent coach and former show host, David Brody, along with business, medical, and sports talk show host, Michael Madden, share with you the exact skills the successful talk show hosts are required to develop while hosting their own talk show.
David Brody has been my talent coach for the past seven years. In 12 months, he helped me make the move from Cambridge, MD to morning drive (KRLD-105.3 FM) in Dallas, TX. He was THE reason I was hired in Kansas City and I continue to rely on him today. I've referred many of my colleagues to David because in my opinion, sports talk hosts who don't utilize him are doing themselves a disservice. From interview technique to pacing, inflection and access to his Rolodex, he's been my secret weapon in our profession.
Shan Shariff KRLD (AM). 105.3 The Fan
"Every serious broadcaster who is looking to improve his craft and/or move up in the industry needs a coach like David Brody. I have no doubt David's passionate, energetic, detail-oriented, and colorful style of evaluation played an integral role in making my sound convince employers in a much bigger market to hire me over 80 national applicants. David has been a necessary guiding light in my young radio career and will continue to be as it evolves."
