A new website has gone live featuring videos of people working across the radio industry to help young people wanting a career in broadcasting.
Route into Radio has been produced by Skillset and The Radio Academy and contains case studies from Radio 1’s Scott Mills and a range of presenters, producers, BAs, journalists, engineers and sales execs.
Chair of Skillset’s Radio Skills Council and co-founder of the cross-platform production company Somethin’ Else, Sonita Alleyne, said: “The Route into Radio website is an exceptional resource that will open up a world of insight and advice about our industry to everyone who thinks a career in radio may be for them.”
Scott Mills added: “Route into Radio breaks down the myths of how to get into the industry. I wish I could have had people who were doing well at that time telling me this is what you have to do.”
The BBC and RadioCentre are partners in the project and it’s being supported by groups including Bauer, Global and GMG as well as the Student Radio Association, Community Media Association and the Radio Independents Group. Have a look at the site here.
