Hiring A Radio Host? Here’s What To Look For
Whether you’re a radio station looking for a new host, a podcaster looking for new talent to bring into your show, or you a youtuber who needs to bring in a host to work with you, you know how important it is to hire someone who is a good fit for your brand. Let’s take a look at what you need to consider before hiring a radio host or an announcer for radio commercials.
First, you want to make sure that you work with someone who is able to meet the needs of your target audience. If you’re working to attract a Spanish speaking audience, you’ll need to work with a Spanish announcer. It’s a good idea to go with a native speaker so that your audience recognizes the nuances that help them know that they’re listening to someone who has an authentic voice.
You’ll want to meet with your potential announcer for radio commercials or radio hosts to ensure that their personality is a good fit for your brand. Don’t worry about whether you can’t quite put your finger on what makes (or doesn’t make) a person a good fit. Their inflection, passion, and enthusiasm for the subject matter can all go a long way in helping you know that they’re the right fit for the job.
When you’re working to find a Spanish announcer, ask them about their prior experience, and ask to hear samples. You’ll want to get a good feel for their range and how they work in a professional setting. Feel free to ask them to read some of your material so you can hear how it sounds in their voice. If you like, ask them if they’re comfortable with you recording a few snippets of their audition so you can run it by some members of your test audience for feedback.
