WEBINAR: Career Pathways in Radio

Joshua Cole, 28th September 2023

There is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to pursue a radio career, and this session will explore numerous pathways you can take into a paid career in media. 

Andrea Ho will talk about her career trajectory, drawing from her experience as hiring manager in metro and regional markets and now preparing students for careers, to discuss how you can navigate your own pathway in the radio industry. You’ll also hear stories of the steps people took to turn their hobby into a full-time occupation and long-lasting career, and gain an insight on how flexible study options at AFTRS can help you achieve your career aspirations. 


Date: 3-4pm AEDT, Tuesday, 24 October 2023 

Presented by: Andrea Ho, Discipline Lead of Radio and Podcasting at AFTRS

Community radio listeners often tune in to hear local news and information. So how can stations without a newsroom or a team of journalists provide more current affairs content? Or how can an individual program maker get started with making this sort of content?
