Making a Pitch/ Pitching your Stall

insight from the industry insiders on how to get your story, company
or organisation on the air.

We welcome Brendan Howard of Newstalk, producer of the Tom Dunne Show,
to give us tips about making a pitch to a radio show.  He’ll show you
what pitfalls to avoid, what gains attention and how to pull it all
together. In this session you’ll hear how to turn your idea into an
on-air item.

Brendan produces 10 hours of live radio every single week. His
experience in this area is huge, and we are delighted to have him with
us.  Bring your notebook!

Sue Nunn is a broadcasting legend.  Currently head of news at KLCR
radio, Sue’s experience as a broadcaster and newswomen is phenomenal.
She’ll be sharing with us her insights into actually getting through a
live radio interivew.  It can be a daunting experience, even for those
who’ve already taken the plunge.  Sue will show how to prepare an
item, use your notes effectively, modulate your voice and really
listen … while you’re talking!

Both short sessions will be of enormous benefit to first timers and
those less experienced at radio.  Come along, bring a friend AND …
