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.
Melz on the MIC is the Assistant Program Director and midday host (12p-3p) at 103.1 Kiss FM in Killeen, Texas. Melz posted a picture of a newspaper article with the headline, "Local Man Gives Up Career to Pursue Job as a Radio DJ". After doing some listening, it was apparent that Melz had a lot more going on than just a local radio show. It is a multi-platform engagement online and on-air deployment in the community. And there's a whole lot more to the story including a tour in Iraq in 2003.
His path to radio is unlike any other and I decided I couldn't wait to have this conversation over cocktails next week at the Conclave Summer Learning Conference. I wanted to get to know him now.
In this episode you will find out that you can make a mark being hyper local and hyper social, provided you that you are engaging. It's just not enough to post and hope people like it. And that as a personality, you're always on and you should have something recording.
