The Media Coventry Conversation this week featured two local radio people who explained how you can get into radio. Tom Reeves, Producer of The JD Show on Mercia and Tim Boswell, Assistant Editor at BBC Coventry and Warwickshire came along and described their route into radio among other things.
Tom started the conversation off with a presentation about getting into radio. He began by explaining that he started out in radio as a tea boy and progressively worked his way up until he got a job working properly on the radio. One of the key things Tom explained was the jobs available on radio. It isn’t all about the presenter. There are three sections to radio, Programming, which includes the presenter, producers, news and online stuff, Commercial, which covers the account executive , creative team and the research people and then Marketing and Events which is as it says.
