From the halls of Podcast Mansfield Recording Studio, welcome to the inaugural episode of About Mansfield and Happy New Year to you. I’m Steve Cosio coming to you a day late because of New Year’s Day, but I’m glad that you’re here. Coming up on the show today: news, weather and sports, I will talk in-studio with former News-Mirror newspaper reporter Nicholas Sakelaris, the Mansfield events calendar and we will conclude today with your chance to win a $25 gift card to Steven’s Garden and Grill with the trivia question of the week.
Let’s take a look at the headlines that we’re covering today: • The race for a new mayor in Mansfield has begun • Mansfield ISD has a new superintendent • Some new laws went into effect in Texas on January 1, we will take a look at some of the new ones that may affect you; and • What are the best and worst Christmas songs of all time? We will give you the good, the bad and the ugly.
Your weekly weather forecast and local sports are just ahead. The news starts in 30 seconds. This is about Mansfield.
Hi, I’m Steve Cosio and welcome to an introductory episode of About Mansfield—a podcast of news, talk and information about the city of Mansfield, Texas. I want to take a little bit here to introduce myself and give you an idea of what the show is all about; some a little background information on myself since I’m the host of the show.
I started in radio in 1980, December of 1980 at KSDO Radio in San Diego. And throughout the years, I have had roles such as: • Talk show director (so I know how to run the equipment) • Talk Show producer (so I know about creating content and doing research) • Talk show host (so I know how to deliver the content) and • Production coordinator (so I know how to edit and make the show sound good).
About Mansfield is a weekly podcast that will be launched on Thursday January 2, 2020 containing news, talk and information about Mansfield, Texas. Subsequent episodes will be released on Wednesdays.
The format will be very similar to listening to a 30-minute news-talk radio news block with local news, weather, sports, an in-studio feature interview, an events calendar, listener comments and concludes with a trivia question of the week.
Listeners can chime-in with comments by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 817-435-2938. Comments and voicemails may be used on future episodes.
More information on how to subscribe to the program will be shared when it becomes available.
