Corinium Radio welcomed our newest, youngest Correspondent this month. Kristen, from Cirencester College came for Work Experience and crafted this article for Cirencester Scene.
Meet: The Media Team
The Media Team, led by Tom, produces LIVE programmes from Cirencester and the surrounding areas. They talk to people at local events after setting up a ‘pop-up studio’ – so if you were unable to make it to that event, you won’t miss out! You may have seen the Media Team quite recently, as their last pop-up Outside Broadcast was in Cirencester Market Place interviewing Mayor Patrick Coleman and representatives from Cirencester’s twin town Itzehoe, Germany. If you missed this, don’t worry! You can listen to any of our programmes from the Listen Again section of our website (www.coriniumradio.co.uk). You will hear from the Media Team again soon, as they are broadcasting LIVE from the Abbey Ground, Cirencester, at the Phoenix Festival on August Bank Holiday weekend. This event is sure to be amazing, with free music and an opportunity to see Corinium Radio in action and check out what a technician or radio presenter does – everyone is welcome to have a go! It will also be a great opportunity to meet the Media Team for yourselves! The core team consists of Tom, Kate, Jamie and Fred, who are volunteers, like everyone who is part of Corinium Radio. If you are thinking about volunteering at Corinium Radio, contact Carole Boydell on 07776 144033.
