Students broadcast live on the the air

Final year Journalism students put their skills in radio to practice by producing and presenting short magazine news content programmes.

The students studying Broadcast Journalism (JOUR3008) had spent a term learning to record interviews, drive studio desks and writing scripts to tell engaging stories to their audience.

They had each produced a short news package for Demon FM, De Montfort University’s community radio station which they used in their magazine show to showcase their work to their group.

Students also got to grips with studio producing the ‘as live’ news show,  presenting ‘as live’ and doing live reporter two ways.

The aim of the radio show, which isn’t assessed, is to give students an insight into the roles within radio production, including those off-air and to see their work from script to on-air as part of a larger team effort.

Students explained they “enjoyed putting their show together and then presenting them”.
