thehitsThe competition, in association with the Student Radio Association, aims to identify the most talented student radio presenters, with the winners being given the opportunity to present two shows on The Hits Radio, as well as one to one coaching from What Goes On Media.

Student radio plays a vital part in the industry and we are proud to support it, so let the competition begin!”

Fred Bradley, Chair of the Student Radio Association said, “We’re really excited about this year’s competition, it’s a ‘must’ for every budding presenter out there. Plus this year the search is double the fun looking for a male and a female presenter.
