BGS Radio is run exclusively by the students. They manage, research, write running orders and scripts, choose playlists and broadcast live over the internet.
Being in a radio team is so much more than just the broadcasting. The element of team work is the most important thing, as people running the technical side of the broadcast, or the researchers are equally important as the presenters.
Broadcasting live is also a great experience for radio teams as there is no safety net if things go wrong. Our teams have to be adaptable and flexible, mirroring many of the skills they will need in employment in order to produce a successful radio show.
When the opportunity arises the girls can interview external visitors. The latest podcast with Dame Alice alumna and Sky Sports News HQ Producer, Anna Edwards, can be heard here.
