Acting Heads of Radio Tony Rasmussen and Jessica Campanaro say it’s show time for Graduate Diploma in Radio class of 2019, 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,” Jess said.
“One panel operator is based each shift at our studios in Moore Park to put the show to air as an Outside Broadcast, while the rest of the crew collaborate on site from studio space with an amazing view across the main arena in Showground Stadium at Homebush.”
Feel free to drop by the Radio Studios to say hi and 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 7am to 8pm until Tuesday, April 23, the last day of the Show, with a modern country music format featuring news and information about 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.
Check out their digital content on the Show Radio website.
