In recent times the talk radio has seen an immense popularity in the masses. It has been observed that people take great interest in this new arrangement and why not as I have noticed that it is only the people’s participation through live phone calls which provides these shows wide acclamation. Obviously there is also an opportunity for the common men to have a direct interaction with some dignitaries.

Besides that, the selection of burning topics, presence of most wanted personalities at the show and the attitude of the host will all jointly work to lift the ratings of the show and pull the listeners towards the radio program. Upon listening plenty of talk radio shows, it has been disclosed on me that mostly these shows revolves around business, sports, politics and financial and other current issues. To maintain the interest, they divide the show into segments by putting commercial breaks or by playing different songs.

It is of great interest for all of you that in United States the pioneers of this medium are none other than personalities like Berry Gray, Alan Burke, Joe Pyne, Long John Nebel and lot more. It actually started in 1945 when Berry Gray spoke on phone while placing it with microphone with the band leader Woody Herman. Within no time, this format then started using for political, business and other commercial purposes.
