Relax For Radio

Whether you’re talking live to an audience, recording sound bites, or performing an interview, it’s important to be yourself, that’s why we’re going to cover techniques to help you relax and better engage with your listeners.

Warm Up

  • Relieve tension.
  • Stretch your tongue.
  • Stretch your cheeks and facial muscles.
  • Loosen up your neck and shoulders.
  • Hum and yawn.

Exercise Your Voice

Put aside 5 or 10 minutes before recording to exercise and really get warmed up.

Simple things like keeping your back straight, sounding off with "aahhh" or "mmaahh", or even eating a tablespoon of honey can really go along way.

Be Confident

  • Look the part.
  • Get out of your head.
  • Know your audience.
  • Research your topics.
