The past week i went on a work placement with a radio station based near my home in Buckinghamshire. Wycombe Sound is a local FM radio station that broadcasts to areas around High Wycombe in the United Kingdom. The station is run by Wycombe Community Radio which is a Community Interest Company and the day-to-day presenters and supporting staff are all volunteers.
I got to meet many of these volunteers and learn from their vast experience in this industry. It was a big step for me working in this environment but I appreciated how much free roam i was given from one for the Directors Keith Higgins, i worked closely with him for the sports show for the week while i was there. I worked on being a producer for the live radio show as well as writing the whole script for the show. I then travelled to Chesham to give live commentary with Keith on Chesham United reserves v Rissborough Rangers.
Here is all my work I did on this week:
