  •  Ed is better at a whisper (4+ / 0-)

    I enjoyed Ed on radio because he was intimate with the microphone and could literally whisper, conveying his heartfelt emotions.

    For some unknown reason his TV producers put him in a giant set and told him to boom to fill it.

    Someone on The Ed Show should go back and reread Marshall McLuhan's "The Medium is the Message."  TV is a cool medium, intimate with the audience.

    Sorry guys but my living room is pretty small, I don't want it filled with Ed's booming voice, even when I appreciate his message.

    My advice to Ed, model Ed Murrow. Pull the camera in close, be quiet, whisper, make subtle small movements. Use your emotion and voice to tell the moving stories you find.
