How to Be a Radio Host

...Be a Radio Host
  • For broadcast radio, research the stations in your area.
  • Most stations require a fee for air-time, determine that fee up front.
  • Meet with the program director and sales director.
  • Determine how much time you have for commercials that you can sell or use for your own promotion.
  • Be familiar with the clock of the station so that you know exactly the times and number of minutes for the interview, commercials and breaks.
  • Prepare your introduction and close and content for your show.    
  • Determine how much promotion the station will provide for you when you are not on the air.
