Radio Broadcaster Courses

Radio broadcasters present news, stories, and interviews over the radio. They play and queue music, make community announcements, interview guests, introduce music artists and live performances, and co-ordinate commercial messages.

As a radio broadcaster your time will be balanced between on-air and off-air time. When you’re not broadcasting, your time will be spent researching stories, preparing scripts and dialogue, scheduling guests, attending promotional functions, and preparing playlists. At smaller radio stations you may also have to secure advertising and sponsorship opportunities.
