This semester I have taken the ‘Room with a View’ media studio. The course enables students to gain some practical radio experience at 3RRR every Monday from 12-1PM. Students rotate between on and off air roles (producing, social media, panel operating, presenting etc.) but I am hopeful that I will score a presenting role at some point within the Semester, to enable myself to work on a different radio station with a different audience and show style.
Coming into the course, I currently do a breakfast and news show on SYN 90.7, so I am hopeful that the skills gained from these shows will enable me to succeed within the course + I am looking forward to doing something a little different to what I’m used to.
Before getting really into the assessment tasks, we were taken to the 3RRR studios and given a run down of the history and what to expect from the station as well as our specific show. The studios are really well set up and spaced out. The panel looks a little intense, however it feels just as easy to operate with a few minor changes from the SYN panels after having a quick go.
