DemonFM announces podcast plan in wake of coronavirus closures
By Thomas Carter
With the coronavirus causing a shutdown to much of university life, student radio station Demon FM have refused to submit to the pandemic, instead launching an unprecedented plan for a series of podcasts.
This is because the on-campus live studio has been closed as part of De Montfort University’s COVID-19 lockdown procedures, forcing those at Demon Media (who run the station) to adapt to the new broadcasting climate.
As announced on social media last week (Monday 16th March), Demon FM will be replacing their usual show schedule with new podcasts, produced by station members from their homes.
The podcasts will cover a wide range of topics, including latest news updates, musical chart toppers and political debate panel shows.
Listeners can access the podcasts through the station website, as well as episodes being available via social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook.
