Tindy C: HBA Best Female Presenter Entry for HBA Awards 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.
