Four new RTI graduates take their first steps into radio

Landing that first job in radio is exciting. Getting ‘the call’ saying that the job is yours is an unforgettable moment. 

It’s something that four more graduates of the Radio Training Institute have just experienced having landed their first jobs.

Zoe Scutter is a very busy woman, gaining experience across sales and on-air.  She works as a sales co-ordinator with ARN in Melbourne and is now a casual announcer at TRFM in Gippsland. She also hosts JOY 94.9’s “JOY 6 at 6” countdown each morning.

“I feel unbelievably lucky to be a part of the ACE and ARN networks as well as JOY 94.9. Radio is the love of my life,” she said.

“The last 12 months have been more than I could have ever dreamed of.  I am so excited to see what I can achieve in the next 12 months”.

Another to land a job is Xander Speight, who is joining the team at Power 103.1 in Ballarat as their afternoon announcer.

“I can’t thank RTI enough. I completely underestimated the power of studying something you love, surrounded by the people who have the same passions as you. They’ve kept me feeling inspired and if it wasn’t for RTI, I wouldn’t be where I am now”.

Jennifer Rose has landed a job as copywriter at ACE Radio, jumping on air as an afternoon announcer at TRFM in Gippsland. She says she’s ‘super excited’ to be joining ACE Radio.

Completing the quartet of newbies is Hayden Bleechmore, who has accepted a job as an announcer and audio producer at MIXX FM and 3CS in Colac.

“I’m so happy to have the opportunity to pursue a career in something I’m so passionate about”.

Jobs in the radio industry for these four students cap off a big month for the Radio Training Institute as it prepares for a new intake.

RTI’s next Advance Radio Course commences in January with new courses in podcasting, voice over and a new Intro to Radio for Teens course to start soon after.

So happy for these four, who worked so hard during the course at RTI. Can’t wait to see each of them go from strength to strength in the media landscape – they’re incredible.

Congrats to all and welcome to the fact that you no longer have to work a “normal” job. It’s been a pleasure to watch your journey and achieve your goal.
First step in what will be the best “job” you can ever have.
All the best
