Next generation of media stars take over radio station

Next generation of media stars take over radio station:

Learners from schools across the Nelson Mandela Bay metro will be given the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in broadcast and online media through the annual Algoa FM Youth Day, which has been running since 2014.

After several weeks of training the youngsters are given responsibility of all the production, on-air and electronic media aspects of the station for the day on June 17.

“They are made to understand that the presenter may be the end product, but that the entire team is what makes this radio station work,” says programme manager Baydu Adams.

“Some, of course, make it on air. Just the other day I was tagged in a post that an ex Algoa FM Youth Day learner became Bay FM’s new Drive show jock.

“It is, to my knowledge, the third learner to work at a community radio station,” he says.

“This is a great opportunity and I love the idea of becoming a part of something.” says Kiara Bouw, who is a grade 11 student at Collegiate.

She says this is “dream come true” for not just her, but for her mother as well, because her mother loves the station.

Bouw and Carla Michaels will be the presenters on the morning DMB show, with Michael Kietzmann as producer.

Being part of the producing team at the station on youth day is a dream come true, as well as an “eye opener” to know what he wants to do in the very near future says Kietzmann, a grade 11 student at Newton Technical High school.
