Radio producer

You will need to be highly organised and creative to make it in the world of radio production

Radio producers are responsible for the audio content of broadcasts via radio, the internet and other mobile platforms. They are involved in the entire process, from generating ideas to managing the audience response after a programme.

As a producer you'll manage and work with broadcasting assistants, presenters and DJs, engineers and IT staff. You'll make sure that shows run as planned and that they are tailored to key audience demographics. You may also be responsible for the business and commercial management of a programme.

Producers can work in the publicly funded, commercial or voluntary sectors of broadcasting. Digital radio has increased the amount of available radio stations and programmes.
