Just weeks into my new role as Weekend Breakfast presenter at Eagle Radio, I was put onto my first outside broadcast this past week, as part of the Surrey Half Marathon.
This was a new experience, as I had only previously Tech-Op’d outside broadcasts as part of Love Tour, etc; along with presenting sections of broadcasts/social media via phone, during my time within community radio.
In it’s 5th year, the Surrey Half Marathon is a large event known throughout the region, this year taking place in Woking. As a radio station that’s proud to be local, Eagle Radio was there supporting #WeAreWoking.
I loved emerging myself in the event and being part of it, alongside the Eagle Radio presenters who were actually running the half-marathon. Creative & fun broadcasting like this is the reason why I enjoy radio so much!
Thanks to the whole Eagle Radio team for their support on the day, aswell as those who originally planned the broadcast.
Collectively we developed some great localised multi-media content, which efficiently showcased and engaged this brilliant local event.
Looking forward to presenting my next OB with Eagle Radio!
