5 People Who Aren’t Doing News Talk…But Could

These are people who could take what made their shows great in their respective formats and excel in a completely different arena.

Published

on

Talent crossing over to news-talk from a different format is nothing new.  It’s been done for years.  Often though, many of these people fall into one of two uninspiring camps:

TALENT A– A jock on a music station that has aged out of the target demo.  However, they have enough name recognition in the market to land a news-talk gig.  Their shows are big on humor but have little depth.  It’s formulaic and contrived.   

TALENT B– Thinks that doing news-talk means they have to be a Rush or Hannity clone to be successful.  So, they drape themself in an American Flag and regurgitate the same conservative talking points that have been strewn across the news-talk landscape for years.  It’s formulaic and contrived. 

I’ve always felt that TRUE talent is transcendental.   When I worked in news-talk, I was never afraid to look at a candidate who didn’t have a background in the format.  The key was finding the RIGHT person…and not an individual who fell into the two camps I listed previously.

As a PD, I would always keep long list of talent I liked, regardless of format.  Here are five names off that list.  These are individuals I’m familiar with who are NOT currently working in news-talk but would absolutely KILL it if they chose to crossover.

NICK WRIGHT- Co-Host of First Things First on FS1

I had the good fortune to work with Nick for almost four years when he was doing sports-radio in Kansas City.  His knowledge of athletes and teams were never in question.  However, as I got to know him, I found out quickly just how intelligent and well-rounded a person he was.

Growing up in KC, Nick went to an exclusive prep school and could have easily gone to Harvard or Yale had he chosen to do so. He even managed to snag a spot as a contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

Our conversations were rarely about sports.  He had amazingly well-thought-out opinions on politics, race, pop culture, the economy and history.  He’s successfully been able to weave those opinions into the sports shows he’s hosted over the years.  Following the death of George Floyd, Nick made an impassioned plea to white people which has since gone viral:

MIKE VALENTI- Afternoon Show Host on 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit

As a Detroit sports fan, I’ve been a daily listener to Valenti’s show for years.  The man is a verbal assassin and has become one of the most phenomenally successful local sports-talk show hosts in the country. 

If he ever wanted to jump into the world of news-talk, I have no doubt he’d enjoy the same amount of success.

Valenti has never been shy about talking about non-sports topics on his show.  As COVID-19 put a halt to sporting events, much of the subject matter on his shows changed.  Valenti spent time on his programs focusing on the social and political impacts the pandemic had on people in Detroit and across the state of Michigan. It was great content and it certainly didn’t have a negative impact on his ratings.  He and his partner Rico Beard dominated the market throughout the spring and summer books. On September 30th, Mike jumped away from sports and led his show with reaction to the surreal first Presidential Debate.  The content was as good, if not better than what I heard from many news-talk shows that day:

ANDREW FILLIPPONI- Co-Host of The PM Team on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh

I had the pleasure of working with Andrew during my time in Pittsburgh.  I recall one afternoon at the studio; I saw him intently reading the book John Adams by David McCullough. 

“Poni,” I quipped, “I hope that’s not your idea of show prep.”

He smiled and went on to explain how he was getting ready to watch the HBO Miniseries of the same name and wanted to read the novel first.  We then went down a rabbit hole of talking about Adam’s politics, his role in history, which founding fathers we thought were overrated, etc.  It was a side of him that I had never seen before and it always stuck with me.

In the years we continued to work together, I made a point to steer conversations away from sports.  We’d talk about relationships, business, politics, etc.  He always had the ability to make stop and think about the topic at hand and even question my own views.

Knowing Andrew, he loves sports too much to want to cross over into news-talk.  However, he has the chops to do so. My colleague Brian Noe did a fascinating piece on Andrew for our sister-site and it’s worth a read.

MIKE WICKETT- Host of The Wickett on Wisconsin Podcast

Mike, unlike others on this list, has done news-talk for a living. 

After successful sports-radio stops in Ann Arbor and Milwaukee, he was hired co-host middays on Kansas City’s KMBZ. 

I worked directly with Mike in both of his sports-radio stops.  He was always quick witted, an absolute wizard with audio production and never afraid to go against the grain of popular sentiment.  Despite that, I was surprised when he left sports-talk to do news-talk on BZ.  I wasn’t sure if he would be able to tackle the far more serious topics that the format would present.

Naturally, he proved me wrong.

Mike spent 3 on KMBZ and became a Top-3 performer with Men, Women and Persons 25-54.   He was never afraid to spar with people on politics or social issues, but also knew how to add the right amount of levity and self-depreciation to make him relatable.Wickett left radio in late 2019 and is now a stay-at-home-dad.  He’s done some fill-in work on various news and sports stations, but also hosts the Wickett on Wisconsin Podcast.

JONATHAN WIER- Morning Show Co-Host on Country 102.5 in Boston

Jonathan is in the same category as Mike Wickett.  They worked in news-talk (at the same station no less), then crossed over to do something else.  In Jonathan’s case, he left spoken word entirely and now works as the morning co-host on Country 102.5 in Boston.

I met Jonathan when he was hosting the top-rated evening show on KMBZ in Kansas City.  If you listened to his show, his success would have been no surprise.  He attacked every topic with an infectious energy that made it impossible to stop listening.  He also had an amazing knack for getting the best out of every other voice that was on his show (weather it be co-hosts, producers, anchors, callers, etc.).   BZ let him go as part of a cost-cutting move in July of 2019. 

It didn’t take him long to land a gig, as Beasley hired him to head to Boston only a few months later. You can get some samples of Wier’s current work here.

America’s E-Bike Future

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says he has had a great experience with his futuristic commuting method, and he believes that most Americans would feel the same.

Published

on

If only they’d give them a try, Americans would fall in love with E-Bikes. 

That is the opinion of MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who discussed his newfound joy of commuting via an electric bike last week on his “All In with Chris Hayes” program. He has had a great experience with his futuristic commuting method, and he believes that most Americans would feel the same.

“Last fall, it was still Covid, and there was no vaccine, and I started to have to come into the studio to do the show,” Hayes began. “I had a little bit of a commuting problem. I didn’t want to start taking the subway at that point. I think there’s some of it that suggest that masking is pretty fine, but I was like, eh, I wasn’t that psyched about it. But I had to get from Brooklyn to Midtown, it’s about nine miles, and I had to do without the subway. I didn’t want to take a car every day. I came up with the ultimate solution – a foldable E-Bike.”

Hayes said he started to use the foldable e-Bike to make the 9-mile commute to the MSNBC Studios and then stored it in his office. Among its benefits, according to Hayes, was that he got to enjoy the sights of New York City while not arriving hot, sweaty, and disheveled for his television duties.

“Changed my life, best commute I have ever had in my life,” Hayes said, noting that he arrived each day “cool and clean.”

Hayes welcomed New York Times writer Jay Caspian Kang, who last week penned an Op-Ed titled “Free E-Bikes for Everyone!” Kang pointed out that his E-Bike conversion was much the same as Hayes’ and that his daughter now enjoys being brought to school on the bike. In addition, Kang said the bike had given him a liberating feeling, being able to travel to New York City after the past couple of years of Covid-related lockdowns.

“First of all, it’s a very cool feeling because you feel like a superhero. It’s like the vision I had as a kid of having a cyber-suit where you are like Ironman. It’s you, but you’re stronger,” Hayes said. “So when you’re pushing the pedals, there’s like this extra oomph, so you can put kids on it. You can run errands on it. It also means you’re not sweating in the same way. And it also just replaces a lot of car trips; I think that’s a key thing to think about.”

The MSNBC Segment by Hayes was titled “The Case For Giving Every American a Free E-Bike.”  

In his Times piece, Kang concurred, saying, “City governments should purchase an electronic bicycle for every resident over the age of 15 who wants one. They should also shut down a significant number of streets. Shutting down some streets for bikes is not only for safety but also because the more inconvenient driving becomes, the more people start to consider other options.” 

Some may see a similarity in this approach by Kang to the current president and administration increasing gasoline prices and the costs of many other goods. However, administration officials have made clear that one clear benefit and objective of these rising costs will be to change citizens’ behavior, similar to the change Kang hopes to see if New York were to use tax dollars to give bikes to New Yorkers.

“We have to get cars off the street somehow,” Kang said. “We have to get cars off the road somehow for every reason. Pedestrian safety, bike safety. But mostly because of climate change and the carbon that they emit. So I don’t know; I think you need to develop some kind of drastic measure that also incentivizes people. And I think that we’ve been waiting around for some sort of solution to this. I don’t know; I think every single person that I talk to who has ridden an E-Bike, and who has sort of committed to it in a way, has said it has replaced tons of their car trips.”

Kang said the only problem with having more people adopt the emerging technology is the expense, citing the high cost per E-Bike. (A quick internet search finds many E-Bikes priced near $1500 apiece.) Kang opined that only by “giving them away for free” could the plan be brought to fruition. 

“If you’re going to get cars off the road, you’re going to need something to replace that,” Kang said. “People are still going to want some sort of speed; they’re still going to want some sort of convenience. E-Bikes are the way right now.”

Hayes wrapped up the segment, saying that the key is for planners to think ahead and assess what cities, and suburban areas, would need as they move into the future. And as the holiday approached, he said he would soon be heading out on his E-Bike to pick up his Thanksgiving pies.

Kyle Rittenhouse, Ahmaud Arbery Trials Captivate the Nation

The trial of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery from Georgia aired for 27 hours on HLN across Nov. 15-18 in daytime, averaging 288,000 total viewers and matching the demo from Rittenhouse — 67,000 adults 25-54.

Published

Both trials of Kyle Rittenhouse and those charged with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery continued to captivate the nation during the week of Nov. 15.

The announcement of Rittenhouse being acquitted on all counts including manslaughter occurred on the afternoon of Friday, Nov. 19, from Kenosha, Wisconsin. From 1-2 p.m. Eastern (noon-1 p.m. Central), Fox News Channel dominated the news landscape in breaking news coverage with 3.16 million total viewers and 620,000 viewers within the key 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. CNN was a distant runner-up in cable news in each key figure; they posted 1.23 million total viewers and 318,000 adults 25-54. MSNBC was close behind CNN in total audience with 1.19 million viewers but with 173,000 adults 25-54, earned about half of CNN’s demo delivery.

The rankings of the cable news networks remained in the following hour (2-3 p.m. ET) with featured reactions to Rittenhouse’s acquittal including from his attorney who had addressed reporters. Fox News Channel rose to 3.58 million total viewers and 761,000 adults 25-54. CNN also grew but only slightly: 1.23 million total viewers and 332,000 adults 25-54 (CNN’s top 25-54 hour of Nov. 15-21). Meanwhile, MSNBC was approximately steady: from 2-2:35 p.m. ET: 1.15 million total viewers / 182,000 adults 25-54; for Rittenhouse’s attorney address from 2:35-2:58 p.m. ET: 1.015 million total viewers / 172,000 adults 25-54.

Fox News Channel continued to thrive on Monday, Nov. 22 when Rittenhouse was interviewed by Tucker Carlson for his “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that evening. Rittenhouse had relayed to the Fox News host: “I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement. I support peacefully demonstrating. I believe there needs to be change. I believe there’s a lot of prosecutorial misconduct, not just in my case but in other cases. It’s just amazing to see how much a prosecutor can take advantage of someone.” “Tucker Carlson Tonight” posted its most-watched edition since Jan. 6 (hours following the Capitol insurrection): 5.05 million total viewers, a 3.0 household rating and approximately 912,000 adults 25-54.

Back to Nov. 19, 239,000 viewers tuned in to CNN-owned HLN for the Rittenhouse verdict at 1-2 p.m. ET; 211,000 for the verdict’s aftermath in the 2-3 p.m. ET hour. Its eleven hours of Rittenhouse trial coverage on Nov. 15 and Nov. 19 averaged 295,000 viewers and 67,000 adults 25-54.

The trial of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery from Georgia aired for 27 hours on HLN across Nov. 15-18 in daytime, averaging 288,000 total viewers and matching the demo from Rittenhouse — 67,000 adults 25-54.

Compared to last week’s total day delivery, HLN increased 14 percent in total audience. The network drew the most weekly total viewers since Apr. 19-25 (244,000).
