By John Montone, 1010 WINS
If you’re one of the millions of listeners who wakes up each morning to 1010 WINS, you’re likely familiar with the voice, and tone, of the station’s intrepid reporter John Montone.
Best known for his no holds barred, man on the street reporting, Montone has been getting in the faces — and ears — of New Yorkers for what seems like an eternity.
Montone is ready to add to his repertoire and bring his unique reporting style to print.
So please take a look and listen to John’s new venture: Radio Free Montone — a weekly blog where Montone takes you behind the scenes of news radio in New York City, and gives his observations on reporting in the greatest city in the world.
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — We are surrounded by sound and it often ends up on the radio.
Nat sound is what a radio reporter calls the street noise or the subway train pulling into the station that can be heard in the background as he tells his story. In the winter, it may be a snow plow scraping the pavement or at a ballgame, the crowd cheering. During coastal storms if you listen to 1010 WINS you will hear huge waves crashing upon the shoreline.
