Air Checking and Talent Development - CBAA Webinar Jul 2023

WEBINAR: Air checking and talent development

Joshua Cole, 3rd July 2023

With about 18,000 community radio volunteers involved in making content every week, one of the biggest challenges for leaders and managers is to nurture and develop on-air talent and content makers.

Using a simple-yet-effective strengths-based system, this session will give you a framework for providing feedback that makes your programmers more confident, your programs more effective for your audience, and help build a team culture at your station.
You will learn skills and receive tools that will take some of the stress out of preparing for and conducting an aircheck, and help you establish a regular, positive feedback loop with your content makers. 
Presented by: Andrea Ho, Discipline Lead of Radio and Podcasting at AFTRSAndrea Ho AFTRS
