Can You Pronounce These 10 Tri-State Last Names Correctly?
In my first radio job, we read local birthdays live on-air. Sounds easy enough, right? It's all fun and games until you have no idea how to pronounce someone's last name. I still feel like I'm mispronouncing names. If a story involves Kaley Cuoco, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ashton Kutcher or Mila Kunis, I let Bobby read it. Unless of course, he wants to hear me stumble through the segment.
Just looking over my list of friends, I found several last names that are tricky to pronounce. If I'm being honest, even though I am friends with them, I'm not sure that I'm saying their names correctly. Heck, I'm not even sure I'm saying my own last name right!
