Premier Christian Radio has launched a search for the next big thing in radio and will give them the chance to co-host the station’s breakfast show in the summer.
The Christian broadcaster is looking for budding journalists who are no older than 12, with the winner doing a ‘kid’s eye view’ on current affairs during the school holidays in August.
Premier’s CEO Peter Kerridge told RadioToday.co.uk: “The ideal candidate will have an interest in the news of the day and the natural curiosity which helps to make a good interviewer. They’ll have a say in programme planning and the choice of potential interview subjects and while some of their content will be recorded, much of it will be live on air so a cool head will be a key requirement. It’ll be a challenge but also a lot of fun. And, who knows, it could possibly be the beginnings of a longer term career in broadcasting.”
Under 12s interested in the opportunity should email [email protected] with no more than 100 words about why they’d like to be a young radio presenter, together with details of their hobbies and interests.
Premier Christian Radio broadcasts nationally on digital radio and is also on medium wave across London.
