Today let’s take a look at the basics of making an Air Check. A Program Director will be look for the following:
1) How you intro and outro the music, the PD does not want to listen to the whole song
just how you go in and of it. This is called Telescoping.
2) How you read the weather forecast and Public Service Announcements (PSA’s).
3)How well you read commercial copy (Spots). If you can write copy that’s even better!
After the Air Check is edited, it should be no longer than five minutes. In most cases the PD will listen to your Air Check about two minutes then make a decision to place your plea for employment in the YES, NO or MAYBE pile with the other people who want “your job”.
There you go the basics of putting together an Air Check.
Please come take a look inside and see what we can do for you.
