I was talking with a retired speech teacher from the local high school, and she was touting the gal she worked for. I ask had any of the former students gone on into broadcasting. She said yes a couple have. I went on to tell her about my experience with news broacasting, and what was the NBC dialect. It was a stacato delivery with emphasis on the nouns. I told her two broadcasters who she would recognize would be David Brinkley and Ray Christensen. And asked if they had trained any of the students in that manner. She said no, but she ask do you listen to WCCO in the Morning? I couldn't answer before she said I cannot stand that Dave Lee. He uses a conversational tone, and he slurs his words. I said, you should have heard him do play by play for the Gophers, better yet your better off never having to hear him. She said with his delivery he is not suited for play by play.
