Want to become an Announcer?

The announcer course is the introductory course for anyone wanting to become a PBS106.7FM announcer. PBS106.7FM is a community radio station devoted to playing specialist and under-represented music, so if it’s your dream to be an announcer consider undertaking the course.

Topics covered include:

1. Background of PBS106.7FM
2. Introduction to Radio/Writing for Radio
3. Radio Voice/Presentation
4. Interviewing/Broadcast Law
5. Planning a Program/Technical Skills
6. Programming on PBS106.7FM/Using the studio

Please note that computers are used in the studio. We are unable to provide an introduction on how to use a computer, but we can show students how to use the software in studio in order to create a demo.

It is expected that students book studio time during PBS106.7FM office hours (Monday to Friday 10am-6pm) to master their new skills.
