GovsRadio is gaining momentum and steadily increasing in numbers of listeners and hours spent listening, creating a worldwide buzz! Mulrooney in the Morning is a brand new kind of radio show that has it’s roots planted in comedy, while allowing itself to organically branch out into whatever seems relevant and, of course, makes people laugh! The blending of comedy and news has become a prevalent means of broadcasting information on shows on television such as The Daily Show with John Stewart, Conan and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
As a rookie in the industry of comedic entertainment, I found myself compelled to conduct some research on the current state of my chosen field after a new twitter follower’s bio introduced me to the term “Comedic Journalism,” which seemed akin to what we’re doing here at GovsRadio. After some rigorous Googling, I was intrigued to find that comedy has become a prevalent tool used throughout the media to communicate and expose truth. Referring to Mulrooney in the Morning as journalism may be a stretch, it’s more like a comedic commentary of what’s going on in the world. Journalists claim to present only the facts, while comedy inserts a clear opinion on the facts being discussed. Comedy admits to its faults and plays on its strengths, which is why I believe comedy evokes the most genuine responses from an audience and this is most certainly the case with GovsRadio’s Mulrooney in the Morning.
