Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: Nancy Regan – From Showing Off to Showing Up

Nancy Regan is best-known for her 15-year hosting stint on highly-rated ATV/CTV Atlantic supper-hour lead-in Live at 5…a job she literally fell into after university. Growing up in the spotlight as the daughter of Nova Scotia Premier Gerald Regan, she found herself addicted to approval, which compounded a lifelong struggle with perfectionism.

Regan is the author of new book, From Showing Off to Showing Up, that she describes as a memoir with a side of self help. Now a podcaster, actress, and presentation coach, Regan joins us on this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast to talk about emerging from years of masking anxiety and imposter syndrome to walk the path of self-discovery and authenticity.
