Yeah, for a while now the pace of the sales pitches has been increasing.
No doubt, some people on air might have a naturally fast speaking style. But there are some, who I think are being rushed and encouraged to "speed it up" or "have more energy."
Amy Stran speaks so quickly I sometimes can't even understand what she's said. Graver has always been speedy. David sometimes rushes as if the presentation is running behind schedule And it may be. But for producers to tell any host to speak faster and move the presentation along at some of the speed they do is ridiculous.
It's not like they're telling them to speed it up to squeeze in more products. They're going to spend 20 minutes on the damn thing anyway.
Actually, Carolyn's more moderated, calm, conversational sales style is what I liked about her form the start. Leah also is a host who is usually not a speedy talker. I feel I can tell right away when they're rushing her in her ear to pick it up, or move on, because she's not usually like that.
