PBS are seeking female + GNC radio presenters

Make Yourself A Radio Star Today!

PBS are on a mission to fill the airwaves with diverse and underrepresented voices, and are calling out for women and gender-non-conforming folk to sign up for their radio training course from April onwards.

The training course is designed educate, and equip applicants with an array of radio knowledge, including writing, presentation, interviewing, broadcast law, program planning and technical skills. It will provide opportunity for music-loving women and gender-diverse people to become involved in an industry where they can be often underpaid at work, underplayed on air and underrepresented on festival line-ups.

 

 

 

 

2016 saw the station launch the PBS Access Program, which offered three free training courses for women and gender-diverse people, and paired participants with a female identifying mentor from the PBS community.  In 2019, PBS aims to have all eight training courses throughout the year featuring women and gender-non-conforming voices.

Although the June/July leg of training is specifically dedicated to women and GNC people, those wanting to apply during other months are welcomed and encouraged to do so.
