AFTRS Students are Live on the Air for 2NRS on iHeartRadio

AFTRS’ Graduate Diploma in Radio and Podcasting students have been busy researching, recording and editing and are now on air for their second broadcast of the year, 2NRS, streaming on iHeartRadio until Saturday 25 June.

2NRS is a national adult contemporary station with a regional focus. Programming includes vibrant personality-driven content combined with music, local news, podcasts and online content.

Radio professionals from across the country have guided students in the station build and will aircheck and coach the class throughout the broadcast. Coaches will include Digital Product Manager SCA/Listnr Alex Mitchell, Hit Central Coast announcer Nic Kelly, Triple M Gold Coast Assistant Content Director Rod Maldon, Star 102.7 Cairns Content Director Allan Sheppard, i98 Workday announcer Cam Hilder, Podcast producer Diamantina Media Mandy Coolen, SCA Group Content Director Luke Toohey, Host of ABC RN’s Awaye Rudi Bremer, Cada newsreader Grant Maling, EON Media Content Director Duncan Potts, and ABC Content maker Kim Napier.

Cairns-based Content Director and AFTRS alumnus Allan Sheppard is set to coach the students in connecting with regional audiences across Australia. “I look forward to working with students to bring out their creativity and making great content for audiences,” Allan says. “As an AFTRS grad myself, I know how important the broadcasts can be to building real-world skills that prepare graduates for working in radio and podcasting.”

“The Graduate Diploma in Radio and Podcasting course offers experiential learning, including live broadcasts. 2NRS allows students to put into action learning in all aspects of audio production, content creation, news headlines and live-to-air announcing, as well as connecting with audiences across the country,” said Natalie Pozdeev, AFTRS Program Convenor, Radio and Podcasting.
