Mike Catherwood On Radio Vs TV

The 32-year old started as a van driver and promotions assistant at KROQ-FM a decade ago, has Danced With Stars (beaten by Wendy Williams), filled in for Regis Philbin on Live! with Regis and Kelly, hosts Loveline five nights and week and he just sat down with Mediabistro for a very revealing interview.

Ponder these thoughts:
  • " is an incredibly anonymous industry."
  • "The intimacy you develop with your fan base in radio … there's nothing you can compare to that. You could be on the most popular television show in the world, but if you're on a show like Kevin & Bean, which I was lucky enough to grow up on really, the listeners are like your buddies. They drive to work with you every day. They know every intimate detail in your life, the ins and outs of it. There's no TV show like that. It's totally unfiltered. You don't have four or five producers trying to manipulate what you say and how you say it, which you do in TV. The immediacy and the genuine nature of radio is what I love about it."
