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:
