Last night (Monday 17th November), participant Will made his radio debut. Will, aged 15 from Ashfield School, has been training on our 'Broadcast and Achieve' scheme for eight weeks and has been taught how to create a radio show and last night got the opportunity to put that to practise with a 30 minute live segment.
Assisted by Children's Producer Craig Priest, Will began to grow in confidence over the thirty minute period giving listeners a taster of his 'Film fanatics' feature. In the video below, you can see Will's thoughts on completing his first show, he will now continue to develop his skills on air - you can catch him next week 5-5.30pm.
Speaking of Will's debut, Children's Producer Craig Priest said "I have been delighted with Will's progress and felt it the right time to see if he could swim in the deep end! He did really well to cope with nerves and presented a good feature, I look forward to watching him grow over the next 3-4 weeks as he moves upto a regular live show"
