These radio presenters are now working from home
The magic of radio, (and recent changes in regulation) means programmes can be broadcast from anywhere there is an internet connection.
And because of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, a number of presenters are either choosing to, or are being forced to host their shows from home.
We’ve noticed a number of you are tweeting your home set-ups, then Steven McIntosh went and made a fabulous thread about it.
If you are a presenter and need to work from home – the basic tools you’ll need is a decent microphone – we recommend this USB one which can connect to any computer or tablet – a pair of headphones and a way to connect to your station playout system.
So, with thanks to Steven, here are some of the one which caught our eye:
