Travel News Masterclass with the Radio Academy and Sound Women


After working with the Radio Academy at a number of Masterclasses and also being involved with their Foot in the Door sessions, I thought that it was about time that I took up the challenge of arranging Trafficlink’s very own Masterclass to give something back to the industry.

One thing that I have learnt from the Foot in the Door sessions and providing feedback on bulletins is that, most people looking to start doing travel, don’t really know what a bulletin should sound like or where the information comes from.  I am sure that is the case for a lot of radio demos in any field, but there are a few key things that can really help an application get past the starting post (keep your eyes peeled for a future blog).

On the weekend of the 17th and 18th of December, myself (with my training hat on) and the Manager of our Northern England office, Amy Lewis, will be on hand to show the delegates what goes into creating travel news bulletins for the radio market. We will look at how the information is collected, collated, output and then broadcast – including using our new Information browser.

Many of the sessions will follow the same training as we provide to new members of staff within Trafficlink, so if anyone is  looking at applying for work with us in the future, it will really give them a head start.  You never know, if we spot some great talent, then delegates might even be invited to an interview.  Hint hint.

Its the first time that Trafficlink have engaged in a programme like this and we are really hopeful that it will be successful in passing on some of the skills that we have within the business to new people looking to join the industry.  The Masterclasses are open to everyone and we are really keen to hear from individuals that are in under represented groups in the radio industry.

All the details of how to attend and the schedule for the day are on the Radio Academy website here.
