As part of our work experience, we, the students of the Creative & Media Diploma were given a brief to promote the school's new radio station. We were given instructions on how to use the equipment, and the name of the radio station, “Radio 4 Success”. In just a week we had to come up with a slogan, flyers, posters and a campaign to launch it.
For research, we had the opportunity to visit TFM Radio in Stockton. At TFM Radio, we learnt about different job roles in radio and how radio is funded. We also had the opportunity to interview Richard Kell and one of the presenters, Scott Makin. From this we learnt ideas for our radio station, such as audience involvement.
Our first show will be airing at break time in the dinner hall on Monday and will be played every day next week. Each day will be different and each member of the diploma group will have their own show. If you want to be a part of this exciting new project then register your interest on the radio section of Moodle or visit us outside the hall on Tuesday 13th March lunchtime to sign up for our crash course in radio presenting.
Radio 4 Success supports your right to a voice (article 12 UNCRC). Say Yes!!!!
