Demon sign-up night stunning success

by Alex Leadbitter

De Montfort University’s (DMU) Demon Media team held a sign-up event last Thursday for the university’s 2018 freshers, and welcomed over 400 new faces.

The event gave the chance for the established members of Demon Media, producers and contributors to introduce themselves to their potential future colleagues.

Jake Baugh, 20, a 3rd year Media Production student at DMU, has been a producer for the university’s radio station, DemonFM, and this year has become Head of Design for Demon after rising up through the team during his time at DMU.

He said: “We had a very good turn-out this year.

“Our welcome meeting gave us the chance to properly introduce our team.”

The event came after members of Demon led another freshers’ week campaign to attract as many people as they could towards joining the award-winning student-led group.

In total, 470 new members signed up for The Demon – an increase on last year’s intake.

Mr Baugh said: “Everyone who came seemed really enthusiastic about getting involved so it looks like we’re on the way to getting a fantastic group of new members.”

With such a strong turnout, expectations are high this year at Demon.

“This year is set to be one of Demon’s strongest yet. We’ve got a really strong base of members who’ve been Demons their whole time at DMU so we have a great foundation to train up new memb43534359_1104404243075256_8397681131297701888_ners and make some excellent content,” added Mr Baugh.

For those who were unable to attend the sign up event and have not been informed of what Demon has to offer, Mr Baugh explained what there is to get involved with if you join.

He said: “DemonFM is our radio station that broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For students it’s a chance to get involved in a FM licensed station, either on the mic or in the tech side of things.

“DemonTV creates content for our YouTube channel, and once again students can get involved anywhere, be it writing, presenting, acting, filming or editing.

“The Demon is our monthly magazine and is once again 100% student-run, and you can get involved either in writing, editing or designing.”
