When she was only 17 years old, Chelsea Krost created a radio show called Teen Talk Live. Her tagline? “Our Voice, Our Opinion, Our Time to Talk.” Inspired by her life experiences and everyday challenges as a teenager, Chelsea’s goal was to establish a voice for the teen population by providing them with a safe outlet where teens can share their problems and gain advice.
Two years later, her show airs on LA Talk Radio, and she has become a unique and distinctive voice in the teen field. Her show often features interviews with professional experts talking about everything from pregnancy and STDs to body image, self-esteem, and bullying.
“We often have people far removed from our generation discussing issues that directly affect us,” Chelsea says. “Teen Talk live provides teens with an informed voice they can relate to, on a platform that is dedicated to inspiring and helping them make wise decisions.”
Chelsea’s show airs live every Wednesday at 7pm EST / 4PM PST, but you can catch up on the past year’s shows online here. I just listened to this week’s show about eating disorders, and was blown away by Chelsea’s interviewing skills and love that she’s bringing these issues to teens from a teen perspective.
