Hope all is well, just thought I’d send you the below link as I made my TV ‘debut’ last week.
I looked into a last minute job for the junior world rally championship as press officer. I was part of the pre-production meetings for TV and it turned out they needed somebody to voiceover their daily and weekend highlights so I stuck my hand up. They got me to do a live onsite demo after the meeting and then they ran with me for the weekend and now I’ve got the gig for the season!
I just wanted to say thanks for your help and training at RBG. Safe to say if it wasn’t for your feedback, tuition and time I wouldn’t have been prepared or confident enough to step up and have a go.
Hope you’re keeping yourself busy!
Although we are all volunteers, we strive to provide a service that is as professional as possible and training is key.
Regardless if you have done radio before or have no experience whatsoever, all LHBS members will attend our training course that also covers H&S and Safeguarding elements specific for Radio Broadgreen based at Warmington Lodge studios.
Our training programme is overseen by Paul Watters formerly of EMAP Performance (Radio City) who has completed courses such as Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and Health & Safety at Work (Chartered Institute of Environmental Health).
Training is specific to the Role Description of the volunteer. On Air training and can take over six weeks to complete and is both theoretical and practical. What would make a good radio programme for Radio Broadgreen listeners and being technically competent inside a studio are as important as each other. So everything from OFCOM broadcasting regulations to operating a Comrex unit on a remote are covered.
Former members have gone on to successfully find work in the media industry (Wish FM, BT Sport, IMG, NBC Sports, Heart FM, LFC TV, Premier League Productions).
As we are all volunteers and our training is offered for free, we expect members to support this charity as and when required and expect all new members to commit to this charity in the long term.
Please note - we cannot offer free training for persons who wish to gain some quick experience and then leave. For this reason we cannot accept applications for membership from students or anyone looking for work experience.
