PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island – No matter how proficient one may be in his profession, a broadcast interview can be a daunting experience. When the “on-air” light goes on, nerves supersede knowledge and focus flies out the window. Patricia Raskin ensures this does not happen.

Raskin M.Ed “The Radio Host Coach” owns Raskin Resources, an independent media broadcasting company which produces network and internet radio programs and provides radio coaching for talk show hosts and guest experts. She has a proven track record for helping budding radio hosts and guest experts create goals for interviews, deliver messages efficiently and effectively, know how to direct and redirect questions, and develop an individual style.

When Will Aguila, M.D., a weight loss expert and speaker began to promote his book, Why I Don’t Lose Weight, he had numerous opportunities to appear on radio programs as a guest expert. Although a confident public speaker, radio was a new medium for him. Dr. Aguila recognized that his interview style required guidance.

“I knew I needed a polished performance as I promoted my book nationally,” said Dr. Aguila. “Prior to hiring Patricia Raskin as my radio coach, my messaging during an interview was all over the place.”

“More than helping me sell the book, she helped me sell myself.”

Raskin taught the doctor how to effectively use interviews as part of his book promotion. Book sales soon increased by fifty percent. Dr. Aguila, with the new broadcast skillset he had developed and the popularity of his on-air interviews, then found himself in a position to launch and host his own radio show.

“I never thought I would host my own radio show, much less a highly successful one. ‘The Dr. A Show’ has taken on a life of its own and Patricia Raskin made this process possible,” said Dr. Aguila.

“With Patricia’s infectious tenacity, she guided me from author to interviewer. I learned the details of the radio business and gained the self-confidence I needed to interview such guests as Dr. Oz and Dr. Andrew Weil just 14 weeks after launch,” said Dr. Aguila.

The nationally syndicated “Dr. A Show” can be heard on WHNZ 1250AM every Wednesday from 11AM-12PM in Tampa, Florida, WCKY 1530AM every Saturday from 9am-10am in Cincinnati, Ohio and WTKF/WJNC 1240AM every Sunday from 1pm-2pm in Greenville, North Carolina.
