Analysis is killing some great moments on the air. And it’s holding back some radio stations. More specifically, programming over-analysis is crushing many air personalities. Reaction to ratings data and research has led many broadcasters to ask, “Is talk bad?”.

Reliable data tells us that if our diet consists of four Big Macs per day, with super-sized fries and a large chocolate shake, and we don’t exercise, we’ll become obese and have a high likelihood of heart disease. Science can tell you the percentages and exactly what will happen.
That’s not the diet that caused Jarod to lose all that weight! Yes, I know Jarod was Subway, but you get the point.
