The JOY FM personality Jayar Reeves passed this along to HisAir today and we thought we’d share with readers:

Quick Inspirational thought for you today… We jocks who are doing shows in 2020 are the new experts for generations to come.

It feels like radio SEAL Training.
“Don’t talk about this”, “Why aren’t you talking about that?”, “When you said Trump’s name did you mean this?”, “I am pulling my funding because you said Obama’s name on the air”. “Wearing a mask is a hoax”, “Why aren’t you wearing a mask in your Instagram photo you just posted?”
Depression, Church attendance, Anxiety, Audiences turning to other means of listening, School shootings, Civil unrest, Political hatred, Pandemic, Masks….. Now go do a radio show!!!!
WE KNOW its been tough. But the toughness makes us better communicators. So here’s what I’ve learned going forward for my show.
  1. Good news is like an ice cold lemonade on a summer afternoon. Find it. Uniquely share it.
  2. Not infusing God’s word consistently on your show is like Bilbo having an Orc sniffing sword and never pulling it out of his holster.
  3. Work hard to make the listener laugh. They need it like never before. Put in the sweat.
  4. This one is not easy for some. But PRAY on the radio.
  5. From left to right on the dial… Potentially only you have access to living water (The Holy Spirit). Invite Him into your show.
Be grateful you get to do this. Acknowledge it’s not easy. Realize you were chosen to be in front of that microphone for this time and season in the world.
