If you know me, then you would know that I'm definitely someone who is shy until you get to know me, doesn't speak until spoken to, etc. So what you would also know is that when my Broadcasting Techniques class required us to host a 2-hour radio show once a week, I was not thrilled. Despite the fact that the show is mainly music with a little bit of talk, the little bit of talk part still definitely freaked me out. (By the way- this is a requires class for communications majors!) cxv
Luckily, however, I got a cohost which made me feel a little better about the whole situation. Before our first go, I was so nervous about how things would go and just nervous about the fact that I was actually on air and that anyone who flipped their radio station to that channel could hear me.
As expected, things didn't go to plan, we had some rough transitions and minor technical difficulties, however, surprisingly enough time passed so quick and it was actually fun. At this point, I've already done my second show and this coming week will be my third, and it's actually something I look forward to at this point. I would definitely recommend having a cohost so that when you do have to do the talking portions, you have someone to talk with and bounce off of.
It was also super cool being able to have my family tune in from anywhere in the world, I know we had people in at least 4 different states listening at one point which is crazy to think about.
