Radio Training Institute launch ‘pop-up’ station

Staff Writer

Melbourne’s Radio Training Institute has launched a pop-up radio station ‘RTI FM’.

The station will be operated by the students of the RTI Advanced Radio course, and will be streamed from Sunday 24 May to 30 May.

RTI FM will be hosted by the students, and will feature a variety of shows and content; from special interest shows (travel, lifestyle, games, and genre specific music shows) to news and current affairs, and personality-driven breakfast and drive shows.

The broadcast will provide valuable ‘real time’ experience to the students, and given RTI’s Melbourne location, the station will be positioned and pitched as a regional victorian station.

RTI Guest Lecturer Steve Ahern, who wrote the course, commented:

“This simulation will allow them to showcase both their on air talents and their other skills including music directing, website skills, sales, copy, voiceovers, and production. It will be worth a listen, especially if you’re looking for new employees.”

Program Manager Ti Butler said: “I’m already so proud of how far everyone’s come since the start of the course, and our team have some great stuff lined up for the week. Can’t say too much though… y’know, word economy and all that.”

You can find show schedules, and hear RTI FM here. The students will graduate in July, and applications for the next intake are open now, details here.
