Addison Agen talks Faith and Fame

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Forester Radio) — This past week for Rooted I interviewed Addison Agen, runner-up for NBC’s The Voice. This interview was a huge learning and growing experience in my interviewing skills.

First off, contacting Addison and trying to get the interview in the first place was a leap of faith. Professor Adam Widener has always told us however, it never hurts to ask. I have to admit now that he has always been right about that. Taking that leap and just trying to get in contact with  Addison was a big step in the right direction.

After contacting Addison and receiving the email that I would be able to interview her the next week I began my prep time immediately. I researched way more for this interview than I ever have before which helped me tremendously during the interview. Because I did my research, I was able to pull facts out of my head to help me transition from question to question. It also helped me not to ask the same questions she had answered already in other interviews. By researching it helped me be able to tell her story from a different angle making it more interesting than just another interview for her and  anyone listening.

During the interview, I felt so prepared and so thankful for a Prof like Adam Widener to help me organize my thoughts and questions before hand. As expected, Addison is beautiful inside and out. She has so much wisdom for her age, and she truly is as sweet in person as she was on The Voice.

Thank you to all who have listened and if you haven’t listen it is available on you preferred podcast app.

New year, New Sound

 

If you are a long time listener of Forester Radio you may have noticed we have a new sound. Two weeks before school started our Station Manager, Emma Lehman, and Sound Engineer, Peter Price, worked on revamping the station into a new and unique sound. When you are listening you will notice we have more of a folk/acoustic sound to us, we have moved away from the pop sound. You will also notice there is a mix of Christian and Secular music, we still advertise ourselves as a christian station so we don’t just put any secular songs on the station. When choosing the secular music we try to be sure that we find songs that have a deep meaning just like our christian music.

We would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on our new sound. You can do that by contacting us through our social media pages or call in to our station phone at (260) 359-4282

Thanks for listening!
