LEARNERS who are in Grade 11, with a voice for radio and imagining themselves anchoring a programme at a popular radio station, now have the chance to do so.

Algoa FM is searching again for grade 11 learners from Port Elizabeth and East London to take over the airwaves on National Youth Day, on Thursday, June 16.

“On Youth Day, our young presenters, producers and newsreaders take the spotlight, capably co-hosted by the likes of Daron Mann, Gordon Graham and Mio Khondleka,” said Algoa FM’s Operations Director, Alfie Jay.

The project that started in 2014 was aimed at giving young people the opportunity to be trained in radio broadcasting, after school, for a period of up to a month leading up to Youth Day, said Alfie.

According to Programme Manager Baydu Adams the idea was borne out of the station’s love of imparting industry knowledge to the young minds, as well as influencing them positively.

“It really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these scholars to work with experienced and talented professionals in the industry. It’s also an experience that will stay with them for life,” said Adams, adding that training would take place at Algoa FM’s studios at both the Boardwalk for those in Port Elizabeth and at Hemingways Mall for those in East London.

“We look forward to welcoming this year’s Youth Day Crew to the station, they bring an exciting energy to the building,” said Adams.

The application should include name, surname, school and two contact telephone numbers and must be sent to youth@algoafm.co.za. Entries close on Tuesday, May 3.

All interested Grade 11 scholars can apply.
