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.

Patricia Raskin always has been a pioneer. People laughed at her in 1982 when, as a teacher and guidance counselor living in Rockport, Mass., she began a public affairs show on what was then a new medium, cable television, to help viewers solve problems in their everyday lives.
