Free community radio course
The Journalism Foundation is offering people a chance to learn the basics of how to set up and run a community radio station.
Fifteen people will be chosen to attend six days of free workshops run by lecturers at the School of Journalism, University of Lincoln. The course will run for six Saturdays from 13th October 2012. Selection will be based on a demonstrable commitment to community radio and creative ideas about how to use the medium.
The course will be based at Siren 107.3 FM, the first community radio station to be established in an English university. Participants will be taught the basics of interview techniques, editing, scripting, broadcast technology and the production of a speech and music-based radio programme, as well as receiving pointers about how to set up and run a community station. Both the Journalism Foundation and the University will podcast a selection of the workshops so that they can reach as wide an audience as possible.
