What does a Radio Producer do?

A Radio Producer coordinates the production of radio programs. You’ll work with radio announcers to come up with topics to discuss on-air and you may have to find people to be interviewed on the radio. Radio Producers might prepare scripts to be read on-air, record pieces to be played during a program or source music and other soundbites to use as part of a radio program. You might work on a particular radio show or you might be part of several different programs.

To be a Radio Producer you’ll need to be creative and be aware of news and current affairs. You’ll have to be organised and be able to work on multiple tasks at once. Radio Producers should be excellent communicators and be able to work as part of a larger team. You’ll have to be flexible and be able to complete your tasks quickly when required.
