News UK launches Wireless Academy competition
The News Academy has partnered with the Wireless Group by launching the Wireless Academy.
The Wireless Academy aims to nurture the next big shows and the UK’s most promising young presenters and producers, by working with the talent across talkSPORT, talkSPORT2, talkRADIO and Virgin Radio.
The nationwide competition is open for submissions to those aged between 18-to-25-years old. The winners will join the team from across The Wireless Group at their studios in London, where they will work with producers to build their show ideas.
Wireless Group CEO, Scott Taunton, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for budding presenters and producers, working alongside our award-winning talent and shows. I’m proud to launch what will be the first of many partnerships between Wireless and the News Academy.”
Finished shows will be pitched to a panel of presenters including Edith Bowman, Julia Hartley-Brewer, Jim White, Jamie East and Paul Ross – who will offer their professional opinion of the work produced.
Applicants have until Sunday 4th June to submit their ideas, and winners will spend the day at the Wireless London studios on Thursday 6th July.
