This week at the radio station was focused mostly on going back to learning about radio and audio production. Last week, I was working on my radio voice and aiding in making radio commercial breaks, but I decided to hold off on that for awhile because I personally didn’t feel comfortable with my radio voice. I believe it was because it was all new to me, so I wasn’t used to the entire process. In order for me to be completely comfortable with putting my voice out on the radio waves, I would like my voice to perfect. So for the next couple of days, I’ll be working on that.
Going back to this week, I focused my attention on getting ready to put out a radio PSA for another class I am in this semester. I’m in Group Communication with Dr. Gibson, and for our project, we are helping out The Boys And Girls Club of the Chattahoochee Valley. We have to be able to enhance and promote the group through different social media conduits, i.e Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Fundraisers, etc. Since I’m interning at a radio facility, I thought it would be cool to try and get a PSA out on the radio about The Boys And Girls Club, so after talking to the man in charge about it, he offered my group a 30-second PSA!! Pretty cool!
So this week, I met with my group to figure out what we will say for the 30-second PSA and during my hours at the radio station, I learned the process of how everything will go once we’re ready to record the PSA. It’s all pretty cool and I’m happy to be helping out The Boys And Girls Club. Once the PSA is recorded and edited, it will be aired on all of the radio stations PMB has to offer, like All The Hits Q107.3, 106.9 Rocks, and many others. I hope everything turns out great next week when we begin recording!
