WEBINAR: Radiothon Bootcamp - 28 April

Danny Chifley, 21st April 2015

Radiothons are annual fundraising campaigns run by community radio stations to encourage financial contributions from listeners and supporters in their community.  As well as being a great way to generate revenue, radiothons are also a fantastic opportunity to promote your station and encourage listener support.

Conducting an effective radiothon is a massive undertaking that requires careful planning, coordinated involvement and precise execution. Join in our free Radiothon Bootcamp webinar and draw on the experience of individuals from community radio stations that have conducted successful radiothons.

Who is this for:

Our presenters will share their wealth of knowledge in what is sure to be an informative webinar for all stations, whether you’re looking to improve upon past radiothons or starting one for the first time at your station.

  • Rebecca Savic, Broadcaster and JOY 94.9 Radiothon Special Projects Coordinator for 2013
