DJ Mannerisms to Stay Away From

IMG_20171006_112408

When people think of a radio DJ a few things come to mind: Loud, booming voices. Wild personalities and fast talking. None of these are truly what a radio DJ should be unless that’s their personality. Today’s radio DJ is someone that the audience wants to be friends with, a relatable voice who connects with the listener one-to-one.

 

Here are some things to avoid as a radio DJ:

  • Avoid making your voice deeper, booming or “Announcer like”
  • “WHATS UP EVERYBODY” – this is bad because you want to seem like you are having a conversation with the listener
  • Avoid talking about too much in a single on-air break
  • “Coming up next” while said song is now playing – this is very common, but it’s not coming up next it’s “now playing”
  • Avoid being wacky and using weird voices for the sake of doing it
