Radio announcer

Most radio stations play recorded music. Announcers who play programs of popular or classical music are called disc jockeys. They are expected to know a lot about the music they play. They must also be able to speak intelligently or amusingly about various performers and about popular culture in general. Disc jockeys often spend as much time talking as they spend playing music. Announcers frequently appear at community events, such as fundraising activities or the opening of an advertiser’s store.
