Finding New Talent At The Drive-Thru Window
Over the past week Josh Lewis, an employee at an Estero, FL Wendy’s has gone viral thanks to his “unique voice”.
What other industry has a need to find “unique voices”? Beasley CHR “B103.9” WXKB Fort Myers used the holiday weekend to give Lewis an on-air audition. While it appeared to be a one-shot to play off his publicity, Lewis appeared to pass his test with flying colors.
With the talent pool and interest in radio from the next generation dwindling, why not look towards the service industry for potential on-air talent? They know how to talk to people on a one-to-one basis already. With proper coaching and a desire to improve there’s no reason why someone like Josh Lewis couldn’t be a future radio star.
