Aspiring radio presenters learn from an expert


ASPIRING radio presenters and podcast makers at the Warrington Campus of the University of Chester have been learning from an industry expert.
As part of the regular “Guest Sessions” talks Chris Warburton spoke about his career and what it was like working in the media.
The BBC 5 Live presenter, BBC Sounds podcast maker and The One Show reporter also gave students advice about how to get noticed in the industry and how to progress.
Aside from students, staff also attended the session.
Mark Duffett, reader in the Department of Music, Media and Performance, said: “Chris Warburton is an award-winning, seasoned broadcaster and it was a treat having someone of his calibre to speak to students. As well as providing some fascinating insights into the worlds of radio and podcasting, he offered some very valuable careers advice to students. I hope we can have him back in future.”
Michelle Ponting, programme leader for Radio Production, said: “The aim of these sessions is to bring the students’ learning to life. It’s great for them to learn from those working in the industry, to help them make contacts. I am really grateful that Chris took time out of his busy schedule to attend the session. I could have quizzed him all afternoon!”
