Give your listeners a voice
Putting callers to air for a talk radio segment can add real life to your station’s output, but how to do it?
While there are numerous ways to do this, bear with, there are some legal implications you need to be aware of.
An unruly caller can shout out obscenities that may offend listeners, or make claims about people and products that are not true – which puts station owners and presenters at risk of legal action. And believe me, once letters from lawyers start arriving it’s not only stressful but costly.
Ideally, presenters handing calls from members of the public are journalists or understand media law so they can keep callers in check and ensure balance is maintained.
