Over the past week, a couple of students from Frankston High School and Mornington Secondary College have been lucky enough to have work experience at RPP FM. Here is the students goals and what they hope to learn from this great opportunity.
Sophie, who was our executive producer, is an aspiring photographer and applied at RPP FM to learn more about photo media and photo journalism.
Saskia, who opened our radio show with her inspiring piece on Nelson Mandela, is interested in news journalism. She applied at RPP FM to learn about the radio side of journalism and to help her decide between writing or radio journalism.
Bart, has had past experience with film journalism and presented the show ‘Are you Heeren Me’. He applied at RPP FM to see how radio journalism works and also wanted to see the audio side or sound based side of journalism.
Dale, co-hosted the sports segment “Liquorice All-sports”. Dale came to RPP to learn about the radio industry and to help give him an idea for what he wants to do as a career.
Rhys, co-host of ‘liquorice All-sports’ and ‘Talkback With Jack’. Rhys saw working at RPP FM as a great opportunity. He had heard of the station’s good reputation and that it could help him work out a career path.
James, hosted ‘Beats by Dr James’. James asked to be at RPP FM so that he could learn about the radio industry and open up opportunities for him in the music industry.
Jack, MC of the whole Show and Host of ‘Talkback with Jack’. I saw the chance to have work experience at RPP FM and applied there knowing that it would give me a good understanding of the radio industry and to help establish a clear career path.
All the students would like to thank everyone at RPP FM for giving us this great opportunity.
