A Presidential Reminder

There have been some questions from our new arrivals, so a note seems timely.

First reference: “President Trump.”

Note: “President Donald Trump” is OK in a first reference on the air, but the “Donald” really isn’t necessary.

Note: “Donald Trump” alone is not how we initially refer to the president.

Later references: “Trump” or “the president.”

Note: “Mr. Trump” is OK in later audio references, but we long ago did away with the “Mister” requirement for presidents.
