Radio Show Topics

Good radio shows require great radio show topics! Here is a list of creative ideas for topics that you can discuss on your radio show:

News Topics

  • Real news, especially recent or breaking events
  • Funny or ridiculous news items
  • Recent articles from the newspaper, magazines, or online publications
  • Sports news — esp. local high school / university / professional teams

Entertainment Topics

  • Celebrity gossip
  • Recent events in TV shows or movies (don’t spoil the ending! well, unless it’s a reality show.)
  • New movies (again, no spoilers!)

Funny radio show topics

  • Hate mail to your show  😀


  • Interviews with recent newsmakers
  • Interviews with local politicians
  • Interviews with local professionals (doctors, therapists, lawyers)
  • Interviews with book authors (who are always hungry for publicity)
