Have you ever wanted to be on the radio? Here at 97.4 Rock FM and Magic 999 has launched a project called BOOM Radio, which gives students and communities the platform to have their own online radio station media player to broadcast all the shows YOU create, 24/7. If you want to get involved and look at setting up your own radio station, you can register below.
The Programming Team:
Are you confident and outgoing? Do you think you could be the next big thing in radio? If so then we need you! As a presenter you will be the voice of the station so you will need to have bags of ideas, enthusiasm and personality. You need to be able to work as part of a team as well as being able to work on your own. Presenters need to be good listeners, good communicators and have a great sense of humour.
If you are a natural leader and think that you would be good at managing a team of people, then you should apply for the job of Programme Director. The Programme Director will oversee the overall running of the station, they will suggest topics for the presenters to talk about and be in charge of what goes on the show. You will need to be responsible, have new ideas and see solutions to problems, have good attention to detail and have great people skills.
Newsreaders and Reporters:
Like the Presenters the News Readers need to be outgoing and confident. The News Readers will be gathering, writing and reading all the news on the station. They will have to research, write and read all the news on air. So you need to have good written and spoken English skills and well as the ability to be able to research great stories that you think will sound good and interest your listeners. If you can see an argument from both sides and are practical and laid back then this is the job for you!
Marketing Team Members:
How do you make people listen to your radio station? That is where the Marketing Team comes in. You know that your radio station is great and now you need to let everyone else know! You needs to have great people skills, attention to detail and a good imagination. You could be doing anything from organising posters and flyers to getting dressing up and make fools of themselves. So you need to be ambitious and confident. You should be able to see solutions to problems and be able to solve them effectively.
If you have good English skills and a great imagination then this is the job for you! The Creative Team will write any adverts for the station, whether it is to promote your school sports day or advertisements for businesses that are going to go on your station. A Creative Writer needs to be able to listen to what the client wants and put that into a fun and exciting advert! Skills required for this job include being able to come up with new ideas, you have to be good listener and a good communicator.
