VALERIE HAYES, nationally respected and recognized pageant coach, author, speaker and industry thought leader launches CURRENT with VALERIE HAYES to keep listeners up-to-date on current events in a user friendly way. A featured subject matter expert on CNN, NBC, ABC, and in People magazine, Valerie brings her fun, candid approach to current events to listeners everywhere.
Filling the need for busy people to develop deep, objective, and thought provoking perspectives on current events and “hot button” topics, Valerie uses her current events expertise to help listeners develop factual, contextual understanding of current events in order to formulate their own opinions of complex, as well as seemingly simple, current events. VALERIE presents an unbiased summary of top news stories, background on how issues developed, with an open and honest discussion related to each topic. No yelling, no name calling, no guests talking over each other...just timely information to help listeners feel informed!
With her fun, slightly irreverent style, VALERIE provides listeners with facts and insight into current affairs, controversial social issues, and trending political topics -- and encourages listeners to hone their own critical thinking skills to form well thought out and insightful opinions. Addressing polarizing topics such as the upcoming election, immigration reform, terrorism, healthcare reform, gay marriage, and the country’s standing in the international arena, she helps her audience formulate well-informed opinions. CURRENT with VALERIE HAYES provides assistance in following the news while developing contestant’s analytical skills and cultural (whether it be political or ethnic) sensitivity.
VALERIE engages with “everyday expert” guests in a kitchen table conversation offering their opinions and thoughts, providing an engaging dialog for anyone of any opinion or background. Ultimately, through the process, Valerie seeks to help listeners find and develop their own opinion…as long at it’s an informed opinion!
