Ever dreamed of being a Presenter? Join our Radio Training Course!

Have you ever listened to the radio and thought “Hey I think I could do that”? Do your friends think you never stop talking about your passions? Do you love listening to 2RRR and want to become more involved in your community? Then this is the opportunity for you, as from the 8th of October 2019, 2RRR will start our comprehensive Radio Training Course!

The 2 hour lectures run over a period of 8 weeks on Tuesday nights and 2 hour panel training sessions are held once a week for 8 weeks, starting one week after the first lecture night. The course covers all the bases to get you started as a radio presenter. You’ll learn how to use a radio panel, write for radio, interview, record and edit your show among other essential topics. During the 8 weeks, you’ll receive lectures from Steve Ahern, who received an OAM for Services to Radio Broadcasting, whilst also diving into practical hands-on lessons with our excellent panel trainers. Many participants of the course end up on airwaves on 2RRR, including Antoinette and Michael from Let’s Get Local, Greta from Big Breakfast and Robbie from Pop Rock.

The course costs $520, and $395 concession and there are payment plans available if you cannot pay upfront.

If you’re interested in doing the course and are able to make the commitment, please do not hesitate in calling 9816 2988 or emailing office@2rrr.org.au.
