3 Endearing Traits of Radio DJs

Listener attention spans are shorter than ever while more competition is vying for their ears and eyes. Radio on-air personalities must cut through the noise and become a habit in listener’s lives. Let’s dive into this week’s Beyond The 615 Column, article # 151.

There are endless traits that will help you deepen relationships and create fans, but I think these three traits are the most powerful for Contemporary Christian Radio DJs.



Self-reflection allows you to be vulnerable and authentic while creating a real connection point for deepening relationships with listeners.

Self-evaluation helps you admit faults and failures while sending the message to listeners that they’re not alone. It also helps takes you off of a pedestal.

Self-deprecation is a way to laugh at yourself and make listener’s smile or laugh along with you.



Self-reflection, self-evaluation, and self-deprecation are powerful ways to endear yourself to listeners. They make you authentic, human, and approachable. So, if they’re not already a part of your on-air tool belt, start incorporating these three traits. With a little practice and consistency, you’ll weave them into the DNA of your show.
