It's interesting to see the differing opinions on this......no one consensus. When I first got into broadcasting all the announcers I admired locally and growing up in the Pittsburgh area..... I got to see Porky Chedwick (one of the first white announcers to have a racially mixed program on the east coast in a major market) and they all sat. So I just assumed that was the way you were supposed to do it. I understand the vocal dynamic differences of sitting or standing but for me sitting is definitely more comfortable. It's like sitting reading a book with that type of conversational style and I've brought that laid back delivery to my show.....but I'm on in the evening and Sunday afternoons. It just seems more natural for me. I tried standing a few times but being so tall I felt everything except the mic too far from me. I think even at a board height of 40" might still be too low. Thanks for the input on this.
