Radio presenter gives birth live on air – and lets listeners pick baby’s name

If you tune in to the same TV show or radio programme every day, it’s easy to feel like you really know the presenters.

They become part of your everyday life, and you often end up hearing details about their family and friends and what they’ve been up to.

And it can go both ways, with some presenters getting very close with their loyal fans.

But one presenter decided she wanted to take this relationship to a whole new level – proving she really did want them to be a part of every aspect of her life.

Cassiday Proctor decided to give birth to her first child live on air to "share all aspects of [her] life with the listeners".

The new mum presents a morning show on The Arch radio station in St Louis, and had her baby boy by caesarean earlier this week.

She told the BBC : "It was amazing to be able to share the most exciting day of my life with our radio listeners.

"It’s an extension of what I already do every day on our radio show as I share all aspects of my lift."

During the birth you can hear Cassiday and her partner discussing what is happening and debating whether to look behind the screen.

They also joke about checking it’s only the one baby.

You hear the moment nurses tell the new parents it’s a baby boy and of course listeners also got to hear that special first cry.

And that wasn’t the only part of the experience she wanted to share with her audience.

She also got listeners to help name the baby boy, and asked them to vote between a number of different options.

There were 12 "silly names" and 12 chosen by Cassiday and her husband.

Luckily they opted against some of the options and voted for Jameson.

Little Jameson weighed 7lbs 6oz and is happy and healthy and is now settling into his new home.
