RADIO MASTERCLASS FOR BUDDING BROADCASTERS

 

If you fancy a career in broadcasting but aren’t sure how to get your foot in the door the University of Lincoln is offering you the chance to talk to the experts at a Radio Academy Masterclass.

 

The event is being held at the university on Saturday 3rd December and is open to anybody wishing to get an insight in to the industry.

 

Local radio professionals are generously giving up their time to impart their pearls of wisdom on various topics, including getting into radio, putting a show together, creative presenting and marketing.

 

Among those speaking at the masterclass will be Sony Award-winning Viking FM producer Simon Green who is also a University of Lincoln graduate and presenters from Lincs FM and BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

 

The day starts at 10.30am with registration and coffee and finishes at 3.15pm.

 

The attendance fee of £5 includes a buffet lunch which will be an opportunity to network and make valuable contacts.

The Radio Academy was formed in 1983 as the professional body for people working in the industry. Its aim is to provide neutral ground on which the whole subject of radio can be discussed and promote excellence throughout the UK radio industry. Members range from students on relevant courses to Governors of the BBC.  

Debbie Wilson from the university’s Lincoln School of Journalism said: “This is the first time the Radio Academy has held a masterclass in Lincolnshire and the university is delighted to be hosting it.”

 

The class will be held on the university’s Brayford Pool campus in the Media and Humanities Building, Room MC002.
