Tindy C: HBA Best Female Presenter Entry 2013

BEST FEMALE PRESENTER ENTRY: TINDY CHAGGAR

I discuss various topics on my show & invite guests along to share their inspiring stories & expertise; I also go out & about to bring interesting guests direct to the wards & there is a section of my show dedicated to bollywood/bhangra & urban music.

I feel it is very important to embrace people for what they are, & to discuss items that would benefit our audience.

The Cobras piece was done to promote awareness about wheelchair basketball. I had the opportunity to chat to Natasha Davies who represented GB at the Paralympics. Ian Trott (Coach) did come in as a guest at a later stage & informed listeners how they could get involved.

Janet Hills is a tutor with helpful advice — the piece I’ve selected is where I further question her, after she told me that a lot of issues stem from childhood.

I also chat about various topics- serious & lighthearted (such as 50 Shades of Grey); & run competitions (e.g. the tongue twister competition) — I try to encourage as many people as possible to get involved.

I interviewed Raghav this year – an International Urban mainstream artist.
I address a number of issues & have also interviewed others in 2012 including: an Award-Winning Hollistic Therapist; somebody about their Brazillian charity trek experience (for ‘Scope’); the hospital staff about Dementia & a charity event. My outside broadcasts include the start of The Queen’s Jubilee Tour in Leicester & an interview with one of the Leicester Torch Bearers for 2012 Olympics. I also interviewed the ‘Godfather’ of Bhangra this year– Channi Singh (live on the phone) about his recently awarded OBE, plus other music stars.
My basic belief is to try & empathize: I attempt to bring facts of what’s going on- so realism, yet keep a sense of positivity to uplift people who may be feeling rather down.

About Tindy C

Hi, I'm Tindy C and through a substantial change in my personal circumstances I have found expression through radio and the written word invaluable. I am a lawyer by profession, but am now metamorphosing, as I realize that my pursuit of happiness lies not within the confines of a ‘stuffy’ job, but by having the freedom and encouragement to be creative. I have since 2006 been working at Radio Fox, based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. This year at the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) Awards, my coverage of the Leicester Belgrave Mela 2011 won the Bronze Award in the Special Event Category. I was also honoured to be shortlisted – this year & last year in the Best Female Presenter category. This is a National Awards Ceremony covering the UK. My show at Radio Fox. ‘The Tindy C Show’ has 2 sections- ‘Talk’ & ‘Desi-Fever’. In Talk, I interview various people (including health care professionals, therapists, charities, other organisations & other inspirational people. I also discuss news items. In Desi-Fever, I bring listeners the very best in all things Bhangra & Bollywood – including interviews with the stars, great music, gossip, reviews (film, theatre, books) plus much more. I have also resumed my passion of writing and within my Blog you will find evidence of my random ‘rants and raves’, alongside excerpts from the Radio.
