Radio Presenters are the voice of a station or programme, whether they work in speech-based or music Radio. They create the vibe and feeling of the radio output and establish a relationship with listeners. A Radio Presenter’s specific duties vary depending on the programme or station. They may present live or recorded shows, scripted and unscripted. Presenters may have to write scripts and links or work from a brief supplied by other members of a production team. Some may conduct interviews with contributors in a studio or over the phone. This is why it is important for Radio Presenters to be able to present while operating studio controls and co-ordinating a range of simultaneous technical activities. This and more is covered in our presenter training.
