Scriptwriter & Producer
I produce for a community radio station's half-hour youth program (Switch On Saturdays). I arrange interview opportunities, develop program topics and assist the presenters in the formation of scripts and the proper use of studio equipment. I liaise with SBN's executive team to ensure we're within parameters regarding the humour in our script, and pre-emptively prepare a template for the hosts to work with. I act as the program's main representative and am responsible for selecting appropriate talent and cutting grabs as per the program's needs. Duties implicit in this role include bolstering the teenagers' confidence with equipment, script-reading/public speaking, engagement with news, and ability to express themselves clearly.
