November 8, 2013Patricia Raskin WPRO

Alex and Ani CEO, Giovanni Feroce, was recently interviewed by radio host, Patricia Raskin, of Positive Business. The two discussed Path of Life: Why I Wear My Alex and Ani, a collection of stories from fans that Feroce and Corporate Historian, Cyd McKenna, compiled. The stories are powerful accounts of inspiration and triumph, describing how Alex and Ani has helped them in some way.

Raskin is a believer in keeping a positive outlook in all aspects of life, and this is evident in her latest radio show, Positive Dating. The show aims to examine the complex world of dating today and how to navigate it to achieve the desired outcome. When we first heard about the show, we immediately saw a connection with our own philosophy of embracing the power of positive energy. Raskin said,
“I am very excited about this program…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, online 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…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 other radio shows: WPRO-AM’s Patricia Raskin Positive Living™ and WPRV-AM’s Positive Business. 
She is a nationally recognized multi-media radio talk show host, award-winning producer, media coach, speaker and author.

Positive Dating airs on News Talk 630 and 99.7 FM WPRO on Saturday nights from 7pm-9pm. Be sure to tune in for the following upcoming guests:

November 9, 2013 – Kevin Millonzi: owner and head chef at Millonzi’s Bar and Grille in West Warwick, RI.
November 16, 2013 – Alex Bering: author, trainer, and the new Area Manager for Dale Carnegie Training.

5/10/12 12:25 PM

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.

NEWPORT showtime. Patricia Raskin pulls her laptop near and dons an operator-style headset, the kind with a microphone attached to earphones. Every Monday, she sits at this dining room table, all alone in her condo in a Newport triple decker, and talks about staying positive.

Talk show host who accentuates the Positive has moved to East Greenwich

By Abby Fox

To Patricia Raskin, a newly-arrived East Greenwich resident with her own radio show, “Patricia Raskin Positive Living,” a Johnny Mercer song from the 1940s such as “Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative” isn’t just an old slogan; it’s her raison d’être, the very force behind her interviews with celebrities.
