We have seen an increased emphasis on local content with Covid affecting every community. Here’s where live and local shines. Be the most engaging and entertaining local show and that’s the ultimate combination in any marketplace. Will the October State Fair take place in North Carolina? That’s been one of the big questions the locals have wondered for the last month in Raleigh. It’s an iconic event that all look forward to. On the run-up to the decision, Kyle, Bryan, and Sarah, WRAL-FM, Raleigh have kept a watch and groomed a relationship with the larger-than-life state Ag Commissioner, Steve Troxler, the guy making the decision. He’s a Dr. Phil-soundalike and colorful character. Once canceled, they had Troxler on their show to explore the decision and have some fun. Find colorful local characters that live all around you and figure out how to get them on your program. Live and local means much less when it isn’t fun. This scores on both accounts and separates this show from all the generic shows around it, doing content given to them by a prep service.
