Many reviewers have touched on these points--I'd like to add my vote (which is hopefully audible): Start by reading the entire "What's News" leads. Follow with hard news articles (M&A.. earnings surprises.. Spitzer) from each section that are likely to affect the markets that same day. Then, once the listener is informed and ready for work, add the editorials, human interest, etc. Today's 12-minute lead story (read in its excruciating entirety) was about how capitalism in China is affecting tradional filial piety. Interesting, but does that prepare me for Wednesday, April 13? An alternative solution is to distribute each story or section as a separate file so I can "flip through".
Finally, please tell the reader that he doesn't have to say "Carlos SLEEEM Helu." "Carlos Slim" is just fine. I was laughing so hard I almost walked into traffic.
