RTI’s July Advanced Radio class recently spent a week in some of our ACE Network stations on work placement. It’s a great opportunity for our students to get real hands-on experience in the radio industry, learning from people on the job.
Connor and Aimee went to Coast FM and 3YB in Warrnambool. Aimee says she loved being immersed in a real commercial radio station: “We had hands on experience with radio industry software like Zetta, whilst getting the chance to do some on air announcing and voice over work.” Connor’s highlight was meeting past RTI students that are doing big things in a regional market: “it made me realise that a career in radio is just around the corner!”
Jayden and Leisha spent the week at TRFM and GOLD in Traralgon, and loved getting involved in the daily life of the station. Jayden loved the chance to get on-air: “I loved seeing former RTI students on the job and how they are working in the industry after graduating.”
Kane went to 3CS and Mixx FM in Colac, and says he enjoyed seeing how community-focused the station was: “It was cool to see, just, the joy and enthusiasm everyone at the station had for their job, and connecting it to the community. You really feel part of a local community.” He even caught up with recent RTI graduate Hayden, who has just started as an audio producer and presenter!
A big thanks to the stations who hosted our students!
