"The current temperature right now…" (from the Dept. of Redundancy Department)
"The time is…" (when you say just "7-52", what do you think people think you're trying to say?)
"The wet stuff" (it's rain, okay? Snow is not the White Stuff, either. Nobody ever says, "It's the Wet Stuff outside. Looks like it might change to the White Stuff. I'd better get my boots." Except maybe jocks)
"They've got lots of stuff and things on sale here"
"This one's going out for [name]... hope you've got your ears on!"
"Thunderbumpers" (I saw on the Weather Channel that thunder isn't really caused by the clouds bumping together, no matter what Momma told you when you were a kid)
"Today's hot new country favorites" (if it's new, can it truly be a favorite yet?)
"Tunage" (this is what "Dudes" call music, "Man". But not real people)
"twenty/four/seven" (okay, maybe this goes beyond the jock realm, but I hate it anyway!)
"Until 10, I'm Ron Radio" (who are you after 10?)
"Up next..." (batting clean-up...)
"Welcome to a Wednesday" (oh, you got there first?)
"We'll be right back…" (where are you going?)
"We'll take more calls on the other side" (used when heading into a stopset. The other side of what?)
"We're having a great time, here"
"What station just made you a winner?" (and why am I such a loser?)
"What's up with that?" (I was hooked on that one for a bit)
"Whoa... that little old lady can sure belt 'em out!"
"You just won yourself ___" (you can't win "yourself")
Any mention of a "desk" as in "newsdesk," "weatherdesk," "trafficdesk." I have never seen such a desk in any furniture store.
Any reference to "hump day".
How about: "join Johnny Jock and myself" for the remote, the sports broadcast, the whatever. "Join Johnny Jock and me" is grammatically correct, but it amazes me how many people seem afraid to use it.
I always hate run-on forecasts: "Cloudy tonight, low of 60. Tomorrow, sunny, high near 70. Tomorrow night, partly cloudy and 62. In the extended forecast... " Unless it's Thursday and you briefly plug the weekend forecast, shut up! I certainly don't care what the weather's gonna be on Monday when I'm headed home Friday afternoon! I always gave the current and next daypart forecast - left the rest to the Weather Channel!
Local idiosyncracy from long-time Iowa Hawkeye PBP man Jim Zabel on WHO, Des Moines: If the Hawks were in a 'do or die' situation, Z would tell the fans, "Start hugging and kissing those radios, folks!"
One of my pet peeves when I worked in radio, back in the days when call letters were more in vogue than cutesy mnemonics (out of radio since '91), was when jocks would follow the call letters with the word "RADIO". Idiots! It's obviously radio!
True, you shouldn't say "currently" or "right now" or "outside," but what about not saying "degrees" or "high" or "low"? Wouldn't everyone know what you meant if you said, "Clear tonight, 38... a few clouds tomorrow and 59... it's sunny and 53 at blah blah blah..."?
