Things to Talk About (When You Run Out of Things to Say)

Being on radio is hard. You need to talk for a certain period of time. There are some people who make it easy to just discuss things that they are naturally interested in. Yet, there are also some people who need to make more effort to know what to say. You may be planning to talk about some topics on air but the moment that you open your mouth, the things that you thought you would say, do not become delivered the way that you want them to.

It will help if you know what you should talk about for your program first. For example, you know that fishing season is near. You can double check your avid listeners and see if some of them are interested to know more about the best micro spinning reel and all details that are related to fishing. If they are, then you have so many topics that you can talk about. The key here is this: make sure that you are familiar with the things that you are saying. People will immediately know if you are just bluffing. If you do not know enough details about a certain topic, read more about it. Find as much information as you can.
