Television Star Turns Ear To Radio

Janine Turner has declared her new radio show “the no-blame-game zone.”

Turner, a Texan – and yes, the actress who played Maggie O’Connell in “Northern Exposure” – has spent the past few years mastering politics and American history. Monday, she makes her Houston radio debut with a two-hour talk show.

“The Janine Turner Radio Show” premieres on KPRC-AM (950). The two-hour program will air live, 5-7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. KPRC is the first AM station to carry the new show, which also can be heard on Sirius XM Radio (channel 166) and through iHeartRadio online.

No doubt about it: This is conservative talk radio. But Turner, despite her political leanings, doesn’t want to just preach to the choir. Heck, she’d love it if some Democrats tuned in – or even called in.

“What I’m concerned about is Americans almost flat-out don’t want to speak to each other anymore,” Turner, 50, said in a phone interview last week. “All these prejudices just pop up. We’re forgetting we’re American.”

Turner’s show will follow the tried-and-true talk radio formula: She’ll start with a monologue, interview guests and then take calls from listeners. Bill O’Reilly of Fox News will be one of her first guests. Also lined up for this week are Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report” and George P. Bush, who has just announced he’s running for Texas land commissioner.

That’s a decidedly conservative line up, but Turner envisions her show as more positive and productive than other talk radio. She doesn’t want to condemn one party or one politician for all the nation’s woes.

“We have to stop blaming,” Turner said. “We can still be opinionated, but I want to be the solution and not the problem.”

Turner’s show had humble beginnings. A couple of years ago, she started recording podcasts from her bedroom using an iPhone. She distributed the podcasts through social media, and a few months later an AM station in Dallas gave her a two-hour time slot on Saturday nights. The weekly Dallas Observer called it the best radio talk show in town.

How to make ourselves more attractive to date (without being easy)

Posted by Levine Communications Office on March 18, 2013

Being attractive to a man in today’s high-supply sexual economy means far more than being sexually attractive.

These days, sex is cheap. A well-worded text can lead to some canoodling, which makes dating successfully even harder than ever. Being different means being the one to win the race.

Famous evolutionary psychologist David Buss, Ph.D., says the only way to compete successfully for desirable men is by embodying what men want. “If women are seeking a long-term mate, they need to embody what men want in a long-term mate. Although attractiveness is important, other qualities include loyalty, fidelity, kindness, intelligence, dependability and good health. These are all qualities that are under women’s control, at least to some degree.”

Aspire (don’t despair!)

As boring as it may seem, your best odds of success will come when you start to hang out with happy couples. “Sixty percent of married couples meet through a married friend. Marriage is like a born-again religion!” says Dr. Buss. Once couples have marital bliss, you are compelled to share it. I must warn you though, it will take some time and you may feel like the third or fifth wheel at a few dinner tables, but before long, one of those married women will find a dude at her office for you.

Make the effort

Bad Girls and why men love them

Every woman can and should make herself more physically attractive if she wants to catch a prince. Yes, life isn’t fair, but men are visual and grow up on images of Barbie and beer ads, says Dr. Carole Lieberman, M.D., media psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn their Secrets and Bad Boys: Why We Love Them, How to Love with Them, And When to Leave Them. No matter how close you come to fitting that description, you can certainly do better — starting with a warm smile that lights up your face.

Good grooming is essential. It tells a guy how much you value yourself. Nails, hair, makeup, clean clothes and so on — can all do you in if they’re not polished. Also, “Don’t dress like a tramp, but show off your best assets — one at a time. Wear a conversation starter, such as a hat or a T-shirt with an intriguing saying or logo on it. Guys need help starting up a conversation,” says Dr. Lieberman.

Play it smart

Don’t seem desperate and hungry for a man — even if you are. Have an active social life with friends. This tells him you’re not just waiting around for the one,” says Dr. Lieberman.
