Radio Presentation – The Universal Truths

The definitive, broadcast spec, professional radio presentation course.


    The red light comes on, the mic is  live … what happens next is up to you!  Every new radio presenter has faced their moment of truth and realised it’s not quite as easy as it looks. Radio Presentation – The Universal Truths covers the basics of presentation and much, much more.

    The principles outlined apply wherever you broadcast and whatever the format.

    The course begins by discussing the most important person in any radio station  … and it’s not the boss, the presenter or the head of sales!  Practical presentation hints and tips come thick and fast and before the end of the course you will learn techniques to turbo-charge your radio career.

    Whether you volunteer at a community radio station or are already earning your living  from broadcasting  … this course will enhance your on-air performance, increase your audience figures and ultimately boost your career prospects in radio.
