Program Leader Radio Lisa Sweeney says it’s show time for the Graduate Diploma in Radio Class of 2018, the annual baptism of fire into live broadcast.
“Students present, produce, report from the field and create digital content on site, sharing the fun and energy of the Sydney Royal Easter Show with listeners,” Lisa said.
“One lonely panel operator is based each shift at our studios in Moore Park to put the show to air as an OB, while the rest of the crew collaborate on site from studio space with an amazing view across the main arena in Spotless Stadium at Homebush.”
Feel free to drop in and say hi on the Radio studios to see the broadcast in action.
Each year we receive tremendous feedback from industry about the Show Radio broadcast. Talent scouts listen for the next generation of on air stars, while former AFTRS students reminisce about their own time at the Show.
Show Radio is on-air, live, from 8am to 6pm until Tuesday 3 April, last day of the Show, with a modern country music format featuring news and information on what’s happening in and around the Show.
Students experience tremendous personal and professional growth over the two weeks, proving that there’s nothing like practical experience to get your broadcasting skills up!
You will be able to hear Show Radio playing in the AFTRS foyer.
Check out their digital content on the Show Radio website.
You can hear Show Radio across most of Sydney on 107.9FM or stream the on-air content.
