Meet this month’s feature for Boomer of the Month – Suzie Raven, manager, Public Service at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). Through advocacy, education and innovation, NAB enables broadcasters to best serve their communities, strengthen their businesses and seize new opportunities in the digital age. When asked to describe herself in ten words or less, she humbly stated: Helps broadcasters, non-profits and media companies spread positive messages. Read on for more great reasons you would want to have dinner with Suzie:
1. What was the last picture you took with your phone? My view of the field during a recent game at Nationals Stadium.
2. If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would that meal be? Sushi – specifically, unagi.
3. What industry jargon do you find yourself using the most? What is your least favorite industry jargon? My least favorite jargon: during in-person meetings, people say “Let’s talk offline.” By definition, in-person meetings are offline.
4. If you could choose any other profession what would it be? Why? I would love to be a photographer for National Geographic so I could travel to remote, exotic places.
5. If you could only use one social media platform what would it be? Why? Twitter. I’m always finding something new in my neighborhood – even while I’m following news from around the world.
6. What was the last book you read? Would you recommend it? Eyes of a Child by Richard North Patterson. Yes, it was engaging. There was a twist at the end that I didn’t anticipate.
7. What television show is your guilty pleasure? Daria – I have the entire series on DVD. I love her snarky humor.
8. What ability would you want to have that you don’t currently possess? Do superhero abilities count? I would love to be able to read minds.
9. What famous person do people tell you that you most resemble? Do you take it as a compliment? I’m half-Egyptian, so I dressed up as Cleopatra one year. I’m a dead-ringer for her.
10. What is the oddest food item you have ever eaten? I ate guinea pig in Peru. It sounds cliché, but it actually tastes like chicken, but more juicy.
