Happy Anniversary 'Positive Business'

Celebrating the Show’s fourth year with a new co-host

East Greenwich, RI, December 24, 2013:  Positive Business with Patricia Raskin will be starting its fourth year on AM790 radio come January 3rd with a new, full-time weekly co-host, Lynda Adams.

“This is an exciting time for me and the show”, Patricia Raskin responded when asked why the change from the previous format of multiple guest co-hosts. “That was a great experience but as the show enters its fourth year, I felt it was time to make some changes to reflect how much it has grown and matured. Bringing Lynda Adams on as my permanent co-host is an opportunity to take the show to another level. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, as well as having an extensive sales background, her experiences bring a broad perspective on both challenges and opportunities within the business community”

The two-hour show airs every Friday from 3-5PM on AM790, WPRV Talk and Business, an affiliate of the local Cumulus 5-station group. While always focusing on the positive, the show highlights entrepreneurs, small business owners, authors, CEOs, business and leadership coaches among others that appear as guests of the show.

When asked how she felt about her new position and what it means for her, Adams said, “this is going to be an amazing adventure. It allows the two of us the platform to talk about the ever-changing economic environment and the numerous obstacles and challenges businesses face on a daily basis. Businesses and individuals come on and share with the listening audience how they deal with these barriers and turn them into opportunities. We want to highlight companies who are creating ‘best practices’. Also, businesses who have learned to be more lean, and more profitable can share their outcomes with others in the business community.”

Raskin and Adams both agree they have the right chemistry and mutual respect for each other, as well as mixing in some humor, to make this show a tremendous success.

The new format begins with the January 3rd show.  Individuals interested in being a guest on the show can contact Patricia Raskin at or Lynda Adams at  for more information., To hear podcasts from “Positive Business” with Patricia Raskin and Lynda Adams go to

Radio Host Patricia Raskin Launches Positive Dating Radio Talk Show on WPRO Saturday Nights

Providence, RI

POSITIVE DATING, a live radio talk show on News Talk 630 & 99.7FM WPRO will launch on Saturday, October 26th from 7-9pm.  The show, a Raskin Resources production, is hosted by Patricia Raskin, and will feature local rotating co-hosts, guests on dating topics, and the listener/caller audience.

"I am very excited about this program.  The dating show concept has been percolating for several years and the opportunity came to make it happen. There is a lot of interest in this topic, and I know that many single people, like me, are confused about dating today – dating etiquette, on-line dating, all the do’s an don’ts, how and where to meet people, and so many other topics. We will address all of that on the program. We’ll talk about a recent dating survey done in RI, and even have happily married couples on the air to share their secrets of success.  My Positive Dating show is for the listeners. Their thoughts, views and opinions are important to the content of the show, and my goal is to have candid conversations with callers, my co-hosts, and some great guests to help with guidance for all of us.”

Raskin has two radio shows on the Cumulus Broadcasting network in Providence - WPRO-AM’s Patricia Raskin Positive Living™ radio show and WPRV-AM’s, Positive Business radio show.  She is a nationally recognized multi-media radio talk show host, award-winning producer, media coach, speaker and author.

Raskin announced her initial sponsors who have joined her in launching POSITIVE DATING.  “I really want to thank my sponsors – Absolute Fitness, Airline Express Limousine & Car Service, Chardonnay’s, Chelo’s, Chi’I Spa, The Daily Wellness Company, Lock and Key Events, Lola’s Restaurant, Meritage Restaurant, Milnaa 3D, Pre-Dating Speed Dating, Aesthetic Dental Center of RI, the Centers for Integrative Medicine and Healing, Tapestry Communications, Travel Plus and The Whiskey Republic.  Companies recognize that people want to have a good time, and have happy and successful relationships, and that serving the single market is good business."
