Inverell youth dreaming of a future in the media industry and budding podcasters can now sign up for a free radio presenter bootcamp to be held in the studios of STA FM.

The four-week course will take youth through the ins and outs of the radio industry including voice overs, music selection, vocal tips and recording techniques and is open to young people aged 14-24 years.

President of STA FM, Mal Really says the program will consist of four one-hour sessions, with the course starting on Tuesday 1 August.

“It’s a great way for young people to dip their toe in the water and find out what it’s like to be behind the microphone”.

“STA FM is very keen to involve our community in the station and that includes working with younger residents to increase their involvement in what we do”.

Mr Really says the free course is supported by a grant from the Australian Government, which has also funded the station’s upgrades to their studios and enabled STA FM to equip a mobile broadcasting van for community events.

“The station is very grateful for the government grant and we are certainly looking at hosting future youth radio training courses to provide youngsters with a pathway into the radio industry”.

Those interested in signing up to the Radio Presenter Bootcamp for Youth course are asked to contact Christy Galbraith on 0421 361 283 or email christy@ladybugprojects.com.au
