On The Air – Brain Injury Radio Discrimination of TBI Survivors
On the Air
Donna O’Donnell Figurski and Julie Kintz
With my first radio stint under my belt (my interview with Kim Justus on her show, “Recovery Now,”) I felt relieved. I’d made it through my first time on “live” radio. Now my new friend, Julie Kintz, another Brain Injury Radio Network host asked me to help her co-host a show. Her computer sound was not working properly and she didn’t want to not do a show.
Though I was nervous, I felt that it would allow me to familiarize myself with the studio and the studio hosting tools, and give me more practice on the air before I took the microphone myself. And . . . I wanted to help a fellow host. So, I reluctantly agreed.
There were some glitches before the show. We expected to be interviewing a guest, but because communications got twisted, the guest never arrived. Julie and I had only minutes to decide what to do as the minutes ticked down to “On the Air” time. Since we’d planned to discuss discrimination of TBI survivors with the guest, we decided to pursue that topic as our discussion for the evening. I think it turned out well. What do you think.
