30 years of Show Radio: AFTRS students shine at the Royal Easter Show


Show Radio, the annual broadcast by the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), is proudly marking its 30th anniversary, as its radio and podcasting students go to air at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Show Radio will stream live on iHeartRadio, offering listeners a captivating blend of entertainment, information, and celebration.

Since 1994, Show Radio has been an essential part of the learning journey for AFTRS’ Radio students.

Across three decades, this broadcast has transformed into a rite-of-passage, sharpening technical abilities while promoting teamwork and encouraging students to practise various industry roles in a live environment.

This year, AFTRS’ Radio and Podcasting students will immerse themselves in a 12-day live broadcast from Sydney’s Royal Easter Show.

From producing live programs to capturing the essence of the Show through social media stories and promos, students will hone their skills and showcase their talent.

Show Radio will shine a spotlight on the essential role of farmers and primary producers in sustaining our food supply.

Through interviews with Show winners, performers, and representatives of various clubs and societies, listeners will gain insight into the rich heritage of this annual event.

“Our 30th anniversary is not just a milestone; it’s a testament to the enduring spirit of Show Radio and the invaluable learning opportunities it provides,” says Andrea Ho, Discipline Lead for Radio and Podcasting at AFTRS.

“This year, as we celebrate three decades of Show Radio, we reaffirm our commitment to equipping students with real industry skills, fostering creativity, and nurturing a collaborative learning environment.”

Show Radio also serves as a pillar of success for the AFTRS’ Graduate Diploma of Radio and Podcasting (GDRP) program, which has a 100% employment rate for its graduates.
