Commercial radio is highly competitive, so when one of our students is hired by the industry it’s a big achievement, let alone the hiring of a whole presenting team. In the past two weeks we’ve had exactly that happen, twice.
In an unprecedented two weeks for Central’s radio portfolio, four of our Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media (Radio Broadcasting) students and Boom radio hosts have been picked up for two different shows on two different radio stations.
Boom Radio duo; Christian Dichiera and Kane Coelho have agreed to be the breakfast show hosts for ZOO-FM in Dubbo NSW. Christian and Kane currently host the Boom Drive show and have just two weeks to farewell their listenership before heading east.
While the broadcast team of Tim Collins and Tayla Golesworthy will be moving to Radio 97 in Tweed Heads in NSW to host the breakfast show. The now former Boom Radio breakfast show presenters will soon be heard from the Gold Coast to the Northern Rivers in Queensland.
Getting hired individually is a hard enough, but to have two complete Boom Radio shows recruited for two different industry breakfast shifts is a huge endorsement of the training here at Central as well as the talent at Boom Radio.
The employment of these two radio teams is yet another triumph in an already stellar year for the Central Radio portfolio, which is arguably reaching world class standards in training for the world of radio.
