Description

For the past 23 years, Radio North Angus have recruited young volunteers to present programmes and are currently seeking new applicants. The School's Out programmes, broadcast between 1600 and 1800, Monday to Friday, afford school students a unique opportunity on British Independent Local Commercial Radio to present their own music radio programmes. These programmes are designed specifically for a teenage audience, whilst giving presenters (DJ's) the chance of personal development and to acquire media skills and to gain self-confidence.
Our transmitters broadcast across Angus in Arbroath (96.6FM), Carnoustie (107.5FM), Brechin, Forfar, Montrose and Monifieth (87.7FM). We also broadcast on Tayside DAB at certain times of the day, and we broadcast worldwide, with an app facility from our website - www.radionorthangus.co.uk.

The voluntary service is regarded favourably by prospective employers, college, University and can be included as community service for all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh, Saltire Awards etc with certain members proceeding to follow successful careers in broadcasting and journalism.

Training in music radio production, consisting of seven sessions will mainly be held between 4 and 6 pm once a week but other times can be arranged. Thereafter, there are practice sessions before presenters proceed to live or pre-recorded programming, depending on their availability. Programmes at times other than School's Out are also available. The commitment ifs to present a programme once a week for at least one year. Arrangements can be made to avoid conflict with study for examinations.

Music radio is enjoyable, fun and welcome expressions of interest. If you would like to know more initial contact should be made by phone or email to Malcolm Finlayson, Managing Director.
