MTYT: Hoping for more 'Your Turns' in 2011

By Gary McNair - bio|email

It's a new year, and I have a resolution - less of me.   Now you're probably thinking I want to lose weight, and while I could stand to shed a few pounds, that's not what I'm talking about.

What I am talking about is less of me on these commentaries and more of you.  In other words we need a lot less "My Turn" and a lot more "Your Turn."

Many people send in their thoughts and ask me to do a "My Turn" segment about whatever is bugging them or their opinion on a topic.  I struggle with that.  It just doesn't seem right to take someone else's views and try to make them my own.  And many times, I don't even agree.

So I want more viewer participation.  If you can shoot your own video, make it less than a minute and a half and send it to me.  Or, we can also help you with your script and arrange an appointment to record here at the studio.  And of course, we'll continue to present emailed responses to the topics I present, both online and on-the-air.

So help me with this resolution.  We'll all be better off and get a lot more divergent dialogue going with a little less of me and a little more of you on this segment.

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn, and I really mean that. Let me know of your interest to share your thoughts, and I will help you make it happen.  Email me at
