AFTRS Graduate of Diploma Radio students have launched their second pop-up network of the year, streaming online and on iHeartRadio nationally.
The Ultimate 80s to Now station is run and produced by the class of 2018, with students taking on a variety of roles including music director, producer, announcers and audio producer.
They spent two days with Grant Broadcasters in Wollongong, Muswellbrook and Nowra to prepare for the launch of 2RS ‘Keeping it Local’, which targets the 35-to-54 demographic.
AFTRS Program Leader Radio Lisa Sweeney said employment prospects are already looking very hopeful for the Class of 2018.
“Most of the students are already being offered either casual work or internships across many stations including 2GB, the ABC, SBS, Nova and ARN,” she said.
2RS is live until Friday, June 15
