Radio Presenting, Producing - Ashton, L

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationEditorial

Abstract

Simultaneously embodying the roles of a researcher, producer and presenter whilst live on air leads to an acquisition of skills matched in my opinion, by no other learning experience. Part of the uniqueness of broadcasting on University radio is that every experience you're having, you are creating for yourself; you are the driving force of your own production. Not only does this make for a more personal and meaningful show, it's also down to you, your voice and your ability to react to the demands of the broadcast. Between standing on street corners, clutching a Zoom Audio Recorder, hoping that the wind and rain haven't disrupted those precious vox pops, to broadcasting live in the studio, you are at the centre of the broadcast.
