WNOW Breakfast with Bryan

Ty BentliBenchmarks must be highly unique, very fun, accentuate a program’s brand of humor, and (if possible) reinforce a character role on the show.  Enter “Breakfast with Bryan” on Ty Loves New York, 92.3, NOW, New York City.  In this feature, phone screener Bryan talks with a listener about something they recently put in their mouth to eat.  With innuendo and comedic pauses, it sounds naughty, but isn’t.  No one else can do this because it’s unique to Bryan and the show.

KSON John’s Dad’s Birthday

John & TammyThere might be no better character development for radio talent then when they’re talking to relatives on the show.  This is when they become regular people.  The father of John from John and Tammy, KSON, San Diego, was celebrating a birthday.  Listen to the birthday call to his dad below – how John becomes that disappointing son while retaining his self-deprecating sense of humor.  In these breaks, listeners see themselves and walk away with the, “he’s just like me” image.  That’s a very powerful element in developing a relationship with a listener so they return to the program.
