I recently recorded a radio aircheck, but I did read it off a script like a voiceover script, and I would like to know how I score on the following aspects.

Was it conversational and natural?
Was the energy good?
Is my accent conducive to radio presenting in the USA?

Please click on the link below to hear the recording.

Looking forward to your kind feedback!

Thanks

It sounded prepared as in a radio gossip show format. Yes itís energetic but your accent is too thick for most American ears. Slowing down a bit might help, but still itís a bit much. Keep listening to and learning from American voices and you can get there.

Ah, I see. About the gossip format, you mean the style of reading or the script?
