As job descriptions continue to evolve, duties and tasks pile up. That’s especially true for program directors. In many cases, a good programmer is overseeing 3-5 stations and performing one (or more) shows. That’s even happening in large markets. Critiquing talent often ends up taking a backseat to more urgent (but not more important) tasks. That’s why I’ve developed this technique to help talent aircheck themselves.
This article explains the process of how a personality or on-air PD can aircheck themselves. Including:
- How to listen like a listener, not a broadcaster.
- Using a transcript as a tool.
- A terrific self-evaluation form every personality should use.
- Other ways to get feedback from a trusted, reliable source.
