Benefits To The Students
Whether it's in an interview, chatting to a listener or general banter with co-presenters, good presenters feed off of what is being said before speaking.
Radio is an incredible way to develop language, communication, formal and informal speaking and of course, presentation.
Unlike an essay or print newspaper with a required number of words, radio is measured in time. All scripts should not only be rehearsed ahead of their broadcast, but also timed where possible.
The larger the station, generally the more support staff behind the presenter.
Most links, interview questions, radio dramas etc are read from scripts helping pupils to stay focused.
Unlike a school play, you can take your "lines" into a radio studio!
