2015 started a couple of weeks ago and, as per usual, the year in broadcasting has begun slowly … but strongly! There are a few commercial samples in this post for your listening annoyance and I wanted to share a few things that have been rattling around in the back seat for a few days.
First, the morning show that I host in Biloxi with Mike Mankiewicz is doing QUITE well! Gulf Coast Mornings with Steve and Mike has been on the air for around 18 months. Since we began, we’ve steadily grown the show’s ratings to the most recent report from Nielsen that were released a few days ago. And it ain’t bad, especially for a news/talk station. Our show managed to be in the top 3 in several demos and number one in key demos – something that we’ve been working to achieve since we’ve been on the air. We’ve exceeded the previous host’s ratings, as well, which is quite an accomplishment, considering that he has been on the air here on the Coast for 20+ years.
Second, I’ve FINALLY delved into the world of story narration! The excellent people at Chilling Tales for Dark Nights accepted a demo read from me and we’ve actually recorded our first project! Check out their most-excellent YouTube Channel for a sampling of what they do and be looking for upcoming productions that I’ve been involved in!
Lastly, here are some recent production samples to annoy you:
