Radio Personalities are not good role models for children. Many radio personalities use defamatory language during their program. They discuss inappropriate subjects and create and are bad role models for the children and teenagers who are listening to the radio show. In a country that carries out freedom of speech, radio personalities take this right to another level. The radio stations that the public listens to contain discussions about sexual relations, alternative lifestyles and morally compromising topics.
If these discussions were limited to only special adult channels, there would not be a cause for concern. However, such unsuitable topics are being discussed on popular radio programs where children are among the many listeners. Some children may aspire to be radio personalities when they are older. The kind of behavior that current radio personalities are exhibiting is damaging to a child’s perception of professionalism and appropriateness.
Radio Personalities are creating an unpleasant listening experience by talking too much. Broadcasting companies make their money from airing commercials between music. Much like television, the majority of the radio audience has a short attention span. They will more than likely choose to listen to another station. For years, radio stations have made numerous attempts to keep listeners from turning the FM or AM dial during the commercial break.
While there are some listeners who will wait through the commercials, radio personalities have become a nuisance. This is especially evident on many of the popular music stations. People listen to specific stations because they want to hear music. That is difficult to do when a radio personality is talking nonstop. These individuals talk before playing songs and continue as a new song starts to play. Radio personalities have even cut the end of a song off because he or she had something to say.
This does not benefit the ratings for radio stations. It is annoying to say the least. In the end, a listener is already going to turn to another station when commercials begin to play. Many times, such action is due to all of the unnecessary talking by radio personalities. No one wants to listen to commercials after hearing a radio personality go on about meaningless topics such as his or her favorite night clubs. In the radio broadcasting industry, there is a special place where talking is encouraged and accepted. This place is at talk radio stations. Radio personalities who are concerned with giving lots of commentary should work in talk radio or play music.
Radio Personalities are using too many sound effects in their programs. Many advances in technology have made it easy to broadcast an enjoyable radio program. Decades ago, radio personalities had to talk a lot and make jokes to keep listeners interested. Today, there are sound effects available to add to the radio program. These sound effects include applause, bomb sounds or special audio loops. While sound effects are a nice addition to radio programming, they are sometimes abused.
Many radio personalities use tons of unnecessary sound effects during their program. They have become so used to the sounds effects that they use them only for the sake of having sound effects repeatedly. Next to the excessive talking, sound effects are another annoying aspect of radio personalities. Satellite radio has become very popular. Soon, many people may bypass commercial radio programs altogether. Radio personalities can help to maintain the popularity of AM/FM radio stations. However, they must improve their behavior instead of contributing to the fall of the broadcasting industry.
