North Metro TAFE’s radio courses continue to go from strength to strength, with yet another student hired, this time by Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) Bunbury.
Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media (Radio Broadcasting) student, Monique Gundry has been recruited by SCA Bunbury’s Imaging and Production team as a producer for HOT-FM and RadioWest.
Prior to her recruitment, Monique was the Production Manager and Breakfast host for Boom Radio.
Boom Radio is North Metro TAFE’s student run radio station designed to provide students with tangible experience running a station before entering the industry.
Students complete placements on commercial radio stations organised through Redwave Media and in their final year are immersed in the day to day operation of Boom Radio to simulate working life in the industry.
Coupled with her responsibilities as Production Manager and Breakfast host, Monique hosted Boom’s late night Drum and Bass show that has been nominated for ‘Best Music Show’ by international college radio platform RadioFlag.
North Metro TAFE’s radio training is an industry leader in the field and Boom Radio presenters are sought after by commercial stations across the country to host their shows.
Last year Boom Radio was awarded ‘College Radio Station of the Year 2015’ at the RadioFlag, RadioStar Awards in the USA and in 2015, four students and Boom Radio hosts were hired for two different radio stations.
