It’s time to find your inner adventurer (or at least your inner cheerleader) because one of our very own cochlear implant recipients is set to participate in this season of the hit CBS show ‘Survivor.’


Los Angeles-based Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6 System recipient Nina Poersch is breaking stereotypes for all people living with hearing loss and is showing the world that nothing should hold you back from anything you set your mind to. She is not only able to “survive” thanks to her Nucleus 6 Sound Processor, she is able to thrive both at home and in the wild. Read Nina’s ‘Survivor’ cast profile here.

We encourage you to support Nina by tuning into the show – and ask your friends and family to do the same! It airs on CBS every Wednesday, starting February 25th. Check your local listings for correct stations and times in your area, and don’t forget to set your DVRs!

Stay in touch with Nina’s adventures through weekly updates on our Cochlear Facebook and Twitter pages and be sure to follow the hashtag #TeamNina.

Congratulations Nina and best of luck on the show!
