Connecting With Your Community - From Good Concept to Exceptional Content

WEBINAR: Connecting With Your Community - From Good Concept to Exceptional Content

Joshua Cole, 13th May 2024

Have you ever had a great idea for a show or segment, but struggled to bring it to life? Great content starts with a spark, but turning that initial concept into a polished and engaging product is a multi-step journey. In this session, an experienced content director takes you through the entire creative process - from fleshing out that initial idea and stress-testing it, all the way to broadcasting the show or segment that connects with your community.

Date: 3-4PM AEST, Tuesday, 21 May 2024
Presented by: Barry Keohane, AFTRS Radio lecturer, award-winning media executive, trainer and professional coach.
Barry was a founding member of 2MCR the Sounds of Macarthur and has continued his connection with community radio ever since. As well as lecturing at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Barry has held numerous content leadership roles, including Regional Content Director roles for ARN and Grant Broadcasters, Content Director for ABC local radio in Adelaide, and General Manager of Content for Astro Overseas in China.

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?   


James Findlay and Adrian McEniery will soon be graduates from the AFTRS 100% online Radio Content and Program Director’s Course, but they are already reaping the benefits of the learning combined with years of their own hard work and determination. Both have secured great new jobs – James at Triple J and Adrian at 3MBS Melbourne.
