BBC WM wants locals to present programmes
BBC WM 95.6 is calling on local listeners to take over the radio station for a week in March.
The team want local voices from across the patch in Birmingham and the Black Country talking about the things that matter most to them on their own doorstep.
BBC WM’s Editor Sarah Harness said: “This is a really exciting project. We’re inviting listeners of BBC WM to come in and work with our presenters and journalists to really influence what goes into our programmes and new bulletins. It is a fascinating chance for us to see what people really want to hear on the radio whilst giving the audience a unique opportunity to really shape our programmes and work with some of their favourite presenters.”
The chosen contributors will be reporting, producing shows and even co-presenting with the likes of Adrian Goldberg, Danny Kelly, Caroline Martin and Paul Franks from the BBC Birmingham radio studios in The Mailbox.
Sports fans can become football pundits to commentate on matches and the search is also on to find married couples to join afternoon presenters Sunny and Shay Grewal live on air.
Contributors will be selected by the WM team and will be invited in for training in February ahead of their time with the Station. Anyone over the age of 18 who lives in Birmingham or the Black Country can apply.
