The Radio skills Workshop is a fun and engaging introduction to a wide range of radio broadcasting skills, presented by your local community radio station, Radio Northern Beaches. The Workshop is aimed at people who are interested in potentially presenting their own weekly show at Radio Northern Beaches, people interested in broadcast media as a career, or anyone looking for a fun and challenging weekend experience!

This course will cover:
What is community radio?
The fundamentals of interviewing
How to plan and create your radio show
Radio drama with the Radio Players
The fundamentals of broadcast presentation and panel operation
An introduction to digital audio editing
Experiential sessions on microphone technique
At the end of the day everyone participates in a live to air show!

After completing the workshop, participants are invited to pursue more intensive training with a "mentor" on-air presenter for roughly 8 weeks and then they have the opportunity to apply for a show timeslot, once their proposed show is approved. The only added cost following the workshop is the membership fee and any costs associated with their particular show, such as music cds.

About the presenter

Radio Northern Beaches is the community radio station for the Manly, Warringah and Pittwater community.

Radio Northern Beaches is run by the Manly-Warringah Media Co-operative. All of the members of radio Northern Beaches are volunteers, no one in the Co-operative gets paid.

The Co-op is set up to cover all types of media: radio, television, film, print, and Internet. Although the Co-op's aims embrace all forms of media, most member's energies are currently directed to radio.

The Co-op was formed in 1975 and Radio Manly-Warringah first went to air full-time in March 1984. It did so on the premise that local individuals and groups should have the opportunity to speak to their community as effectively as possible, without censorship and without commercial pressure.

When Pittwater Council was formed, we changed our "station call-name" to Radio Northern Beaches.
