Premier Christian Radio seeks young talent

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 “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 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.
