How is that collection of opening lines working out? This isn’t a list of cheesy lines to pick up women or guys, though that can be a great segment on the air. You may want to try it sometime! I’m talking about hooks that attract listeners quickly.
In this article, I share five types of hooks that work for hosts, including:
- The Question Hook.
- Making a Direct Comment that requires explanation.
- The Strong Statement Hook requires support and inspires controversy.
- The Thesis Statement Hook, a technique that suggests the conclusion.
- Character-Defining Hooks to introduce a personal story.
