The Sound Off Podcast is a series of interviews and discussions about Broadcasting, podcasting and New Media. Matt Cundill is a 20 year veteran of the radio industry and has worked on air, and as a program director. Matt now works with broadcasters and podcasters to increase their audience and the amount of time engaged on their audio.
Steve Kowch is a talent coach, radio consultant and ran two of the biggest News Talk stations in Canada for many decades; CJAD in Montreal and News Talk 1010 CFRB in Toronto. As I was interviewing Steve about talent and journalism, I thought of all of his experiences he had with the mega-sized news stories he covered in Montreal and Toronto. (FLQ, PQ, Referenda, Olympics, Sars, Rob Ford) As this is a podcast designed to better broadcasters everywhere, it's only fitting that we spoke to the author of "99 Things You Wish You Knew Before You Make it Big in Media".
Most of what I know about newsrooms and journalism came from having worked at CHOM/CKGM in the early 90's, (although Steve had left for CJAD, he had taught the likes of Mark Kelley, Ann Shatilla and countless others how to pass on what they knew to others. If it sounds like Steve laments the days of busier newsrooms and the knowledge sharing that transpired, he has high praise for those doing journalistic work today.
