Trainee presenter/producer positions

Bush Radio 89.5 FM, Africa’s oldest community radio station project, is offering two local internships in its programming department for trainee producer/presenters.

The internship in Cape Town provides opportunities for the candidates to develop skills in producing content for radio programmes (ie research, scripting, etc) and presenting (interviewing, etc).

* Generate interview ideas * Research topics for programme * Schedule and liaise with guests * Draft questions before and during interviews * Research, package and present programme elements (community notices, updates, tips etc) * Liaise with listeners regarding programme * Take photographs / video * Updating blogs/websites * Present a radio programme (NOT DJing!)


Successful candidates must be available to receive basic training in mid-February 2012 and be available from Monday to Friday – 8am to 2pm. The internships will run from mid-February 2012 – June 2012 (fulltime).


No formal qualifications are required but the candidates must be computer literate and understand, write, read and speak English and one other indigenous language. A good general knowledge is essential; a passion for news would be an advantage.
