Stations, call signs
Each of the players on stage will represent a certain type of characteristic radio channel. Each player will correspond to you an un-newsworthy item in the genre of their chosen radio channel.
This looks and acts very much like a die game, except that the audience does not yell die. The players each present the given news item as their radio station would. The host for the night shifts from one station to another while the news story is presented. Each player represents their radio station. And the conductor is just looking of a channel that she likes. The game sounds best if there is a bit of overlap between the stations, just like tuning an old style radio.
Radio channels can go off the air (if you are in a wimping kind of mood).
