I have found my new favorite anchor at AN106.7. Mark Woolsey came on at 5:00 PM today. He is comfortable running the board while on the air. The levels are good and there are no mistakes. Mark can ad lib really well. Also, at 5:06 PM he gave the absolute best weather forecast I have heard since AN106.7 started. He gave the temps for three communities, summarized what was happening on the radar, and told us what to expect from what he saw on the radar.
Matt Hoffberg (sp?) was doing the traffic during the 5:00 hour. He was fantastic. There were problems, he associated a couple of backups together. He was conversational. He communicated a sense of what part of the metro he was talking about. He was not just reading a list of problems.
Mark and Matt could do weekdays together and I would be very happy with the product they are putting out there.
On the flip side, the first two anchors on Saturday did not give any temps of any sort during the day (at least when I was listening). Mostly after the weather they would go straight to commercial or give the time and go straight to commercial. The female was running all of the music beds at full volume so it was difficult to hear the weather, traffic, sports, or business. I called the station and they fixed the problem immediately.
I am ready to start a Mark Woolsey fan club!
