RADIO INTERVIEW: Scott Hetsko and FLDRN’s Rob Kochik on WXXI-AM’s “Connections”
February 18th, 2016 by Nancy Ryan
Scott Hetsko, the popular WROC-TV/News 8 Rochester chief meteorologist, who returned to work on February 7 after receiving a new heart in September last year, was interviewed today by Evan Dawson on Rochester’s National Public Radio station WXXI-AM 1370.
Dawson is the host of “Connections,” which airs weekdays from noon to 2 p.m. The interview filled a one-hour segment.
Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network’s executive director, Rob Kochik, also joined in the discussion, half way through the interview.
Welcoming Hetsko to his show, Dawson read from a newspaper quote where the meteorologist described how dire his situation had been: “Either die or get a new heart.”
In addition to airing on WXXI, “Connections” can be heard on WRUR-FM 88.5 in Rochester and WEOS 89.5 FM in Geneva, NY.
