De Montfort University’s student radio station Demon FM is set to launch a brand new series of content to be released over the course of lockdown.
With national restrictions preventing students from returning to campus, the team Demon FM, like many societies at DMU, is trying to continue providing activities for its members.
Instead of weekly shows live from the studio, presenters will produce the programmes from their homes, seeing the radio station move towards a podcast format.
Mike Kennedy, programme director at Demon FM, said: “The world might be in a state of uncertainty but at Demon FM we want to provide great content for people to access.
“It’s important to have an escape from the world around us, and Demon’s new way of programming will help keep the spirits of ‘demonites’ [society members] up.”
Content being produced over lockdown includes political debate on InFocus, a brand new Sports Show, and the return of the ‘Weekly Wonder’ podcast, a previous staple of Demon FM.
The shows will be released on a weekly basis and shared across the Demon FM social media pages, with listeners being able to interact with the products via Facebook and Twitter.
Additionally, the broadcasts will be available as podcasts, meaning they can be downloaded and listened to on demand.
For those able to access the studio facilities, the station is fully Covid-compliant, with presenters wearing masks and equipment being sanitised after every use.
