I've been listening to TSN690 at work and at first I found it odd that they would give Nilan his own show. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt.
After a week, I am disappointed. You can really tell he has little training in the field of media/broadcasting. Being a guest is one thing, but being 'on the radio' is another. For all we know though, TSN could be giving him lessons in the meantime.
I just find him very monotone. No charisma. His segways into breaks are poorly timed. Even as the host I find he reverts to the role of sidekick, he rarely takes control of the direction the conversation is going in and sort of feeds off, campbell or mckenna. With practice and time these things will come I suppose. He needs to learn how to be a host and not a colour man.
I love it when he gives analysis from the point of view of the goon. That's what he knows. I'll give it some more time before I write him off.
