Talk Better Radio

March 08, 2006 12:00pm - 3:00pm

Marilyn Pittman: Veteran broadcaster and trainer Marilyn Pittman shows you how to "talk the copy" instead of reading it. A master at techniques for sounding conversational in the read, Marilyn has been coaching public radio reporters, anchors and announcers since 1989.

There are three parts to this session: Critiquing Your Work, Tips and Techniques and On-Mic Directing. Included are breathing and mic techniques, prepping copy, operative words, vocal dynamics (pitch, rhythm, volume, tempo), warming up, bringing your authentic self to the read, and finding the right tone for the content.
