Talk Radio Unhinged
“The Jonathon Brandmeier Show” is an entertaining, offbeat look at the news, pop culture, and sports â from the big trending topics to the stories about to fall through the cracks â combined with celebrity interviews and free-wheeling audience interaction.
It’s simple. It’s the way I’ve always approached the show from day one: wake up in the morning, scan news from everywhere, and pull the stories that jump out at me.
The News We Choose
It’s not just about what’s trending – it’s about what’s interesting. It’s simple. It’s the way I’ve always approached the show from day one: wake up in the morning, scan news from everywhere, and pull the stories that jump out at me. The ones that genuinely excite me. Or disturb me. Or confuse me. The stories we HAVE to know more about. And then the show becomes about finding out more. The show has always stemmed from organic curiosity.
News As Entertainment
Sometimes it’s a big national story, sometimes it’s a pop culture item, sometimes it’s a weird local story – it can be anything – if it’s in the news and we are curious about it, weâll talk about it. The audience picks up on that authentic interest and wants to become a part of the conversation. They donât want topics forced on them! Sometimes they start the conversation. News “we” choose means us and the audience – the stories people really want to hear. We will not beat a topic to death just because thatâs what everyone else is doing.
That’s the core. Then you add newsmaker interviews, celebrity guests, and random fun with callers around the country and you have The Jonathon Brandmeier Show.
