Clyde 1 Seeks Future Radio Stars

Clyde 1 radio station is currently looking for 20 talented and driven individuals who are interested in a career in the radio industry to take part in a free training course.

The course which begins in the first week in May will involve six one hour training sessions over the course of six weeks.  Participants take part in an end of course exam with any suitable candidates receiving further training with a view to becoming part of Clyde’s freelance production team.

Tracey McNellan, Station Director at Clyde 1, said: 

“By providing this course, we hope to identify the next generation of radio professionals who will be an asset to Radio Clyde.  We’ll teach you how to work a professional radio environment. From writing scripts, to recording and editing audio, to mixing and presenting programmes, to news and interview techniques, we’ll give you an insight into professional radio in Scotland.

“Many of the current Radio Clyde presenters and producers undertook training at Clyde at the start of their careers including George Bowie, Suzie McGuire, Gina McKie, Adele from Bowie at Breakfast, Shebahn from Clyde 1 travel and Ross King.  The course will be extremely beneficial for all candidates who are hoping to establish a career in the radio industry.”

Suzie McGuire, drivetime DJ and presenter at Clyde 1, said:  “This is an amazing opportunity to cut your teeth in the radio industry.  Clyde 1 is a fantastic station and future radio stars will receive the highest quality of training.  I gained a lot of my skills at Clyde and the preparation for radio this course offers is excellent.

Duncan Leven, production manager at Radio Clyde, set up the course and will be running training sessions.  If you have an interest in music, media, and making great radio programmes, please visit www.clyde1.com/training for full details and to tell us why you should be considered for the training course.
