Training event to have own radio station

A major free industry training event next week being run by the BBC Academy is to broadcast its own radio station for the day.

Radio Fast Train will be on air around London’s White City and also available to listen to online.

The station is being run by trainees from the BBC’s Production, Journalism and Extend schemes, who reporters out and about talking to attendees, guests and trainers during the workshops next Tuesday.

There are 12 masterclasses taking place on the day with speakers including the BBC’s Director of Audio and Music Tim Davie, Radio 1’s Scott Mills and Annie Mac, Kiss FM’s Neev, talkSPORT Programme Director Moz Dee and Radio 4 Woman’s Hour presenter Jane Garvey.

Some of the winners from last year’s Student Radio Awards will also feature on the day-long broadcast – including Frank McWeeny from Smoke Radio, Chalk and Charles from University Radio York.

The Radio Fast Train is being hosted by the BBC Academy in partnership with Skillset and being produced together with The Radio Academy, Radio Independents Group, RadioCentre, the Community Media Association, Sound Women and BECTU.

Those who didn’t get hold of tickets for the event will also be able to follow the action on Twitter and listen to podcasts of all the masterclasses after the event.
