This week saw 18 students complete Beat 102-103’s radio broadcast course run in conjunction with WIT & local radio station, WLR.

An introduction to radio presenting & broadcasting, this 10 credit, level 6 course helps those who are eager to ‘get a foot in the door’ of the broadcast industry.

Over the last 12 weeks, students got to build skills in on-air reading and presenting. As part of the course, they were introduced to the operation of a commercial radio station, the role of broadcast journalists and presenters within it & were introduced to and practiced the skills required, to work in the broadcast industry.

The course will be run again in Spring 2018.
