To develop my radio skills in 2013 I jumped at the opportunity to complete a three month volunteering programme at Inspiration Fm in my home town Northampton. Inspiration fm is a community radio station whose aim is to put the unity back into the community by raising the awareness, achievements, knowledge and understanding of diverse cultures within the community to help promote the views and opinions of others. My role at the radio station involved researching news topics, planning and conducting interviews, editing content suitable for broadcast and assisting other members of the team.
I worked on a number of stories such as:
Do you think there is enough support for young people towards their career?
What are students options for after GCSE’s? A Levels or College? Which is more beneficial and why?
Plans to build a cafe at Northamptons skatepark
Is fake tan dangerous?
The Multicultural Fashion Show event
