Radio Personalities

A radio personality is a person who hosts a radio talk show and interacts with the audience via telephone or email. Radio personalities are very popular and the success of a radio channel is largely dependent upon the popularity of the radio personality who host its programs. Radio shows can be music countdowns, news programs, educational shows, interviews with celebrities, or shows dedicated to solve specific problems of the callers.
