Training Course Completed
Prospective Presenters Pass The Test!
Nine new trainees have successfully completed the HFM Radio Academy Course.
The students have spent six Tuesday evenings with us at the HFM studios in Harborough.
The Candidates who completed the course were: Laura Brown, Tamsin Audouy, Dan Perriman, Iam Fulton, Ian Parker, Kevin Steptoe, Owen Brooks, Owen Davies and Simon DIckinson.
The course included training on the technical equipment, presenting a show and producing jingles and commercials.
The students had the opportunity to read news, weather and community events live on air.
Regular HFM presenters also gave talks on their own experiences on radio and offered tips and advice to the students.
Course Organiser and co-ordinator Graham Beeby, says: " We are delighted with the candidates this year. It was great to see the confidence of our students increase throughout the course".
HFMs technical tutor, djbraine, added "We have been very pleased with the commitment from our students on this course. They were all willing to learn and also very keen to participate with all aspects of producing a radio show".
Look out for these new radio presenters. They may be appearing on a radio station near you soon!
