After a 3-year hiatus, popular TV news anchor and medical journalist Heidi Godman is going back on the air—this time, she’s taking on talk radio. Godman will host the new show “HEALTH IQ with Heidi Godman,” which will air Monday through Friday from 3pm to 4pm on WSRQ 106.9 FM and 1220 AM. The show will focus on all aspects of health and wellness.
“I’ll be talking daily to doctors and health experts on the Suncoast and across the country. It’s a wonderful opportunity for listeners to get the latest in cutting edge medical information, trends and treatments,” says Godman. “And best of all, they’ll be able to call in and ask their own questions."
The show is the brainchild of Jim Abrams, the national franchise guru whose latest venture is Fyzical. He’s producing the medically-focused talk radio show to provide a vital community service.
"Heidi’s experience as a medical journalist makes her the perfect fit for our radio project,” says Abrams. “Heidi covered the medical beat for over 20 years and one of her greatest talents is the ability to explain complicated health information in a way that’s easy to understand.”
Godman spent 22 years at WWSB-TV in Sarasota, where she was the main anchor and medical editor. She left in 2010, and is now the executive editor of the Harvard Health Letter, a monthly medical periodical from Harvard Medical School.
Health IQ with Heidi Godman” airs weekdays from 3pm-4pm on WSRQ 106.9FM and 1220AM beginning April 8th.
