Wow.. TWO Morning Newscasts In Under 4:30!

One of my favorite newspeople has worked in Winnipeg for many years on Astral's QX104.

Boyd Kozak proves that being contemporary and relevant is not a matter of the age of the journalist.

Sure, he's a longtime Canadian radio legend, but "Kozie" lives up to his reputation every morning in his writing, story choices and style. (click to listen to two consecutive recent newscasts)
  • Nine stories in 1:51.
  • Only one story repeats in the two newscasts, the right one.
  • Stories I care about, and rattled through.
  • The writing is excellent.
  • Traffic was perfect "location first" content.
  • And he blew through a two day weather giving me everything I needed to know in 10 seconds.
And, to top things off, he even explains in today's blog post how he's able to do it with some Monday Motivation.
