Since 2014, Global Radio have been providing EP students with an exclusive insight into corporate radio, which includes sales, journalism and project work.
Notably, Centre of Journalism student, Jayna Rana was given the opportunity to spend 2-weeks in one of the flagship regional stations, Heart Kent in Whitstable.
Upon completing her placement, Jayna commented:
“As a journalism graduate, my time at This is Global was invaluable. I was able to see how news is gathered and produced for radio in a busy and exciting environment. I was also given the opportunity to conduct research, compile questions for high profile interviews and even sit in on the morning breakfast show and watch the presenters live in action – a fantastic experience!”
During her time at Global Radio, Jayna impressed the senior management team, as Emma Liddiard, Managing Director, reflected:
“We really enjoyed having Jayna with us. Having identified that she was interested in journalism, we gave her lots of experience in the news department and she worked closely with Zora Suleman who was able to work with her on both Kent news and national stories. We even sent her out as our reporter to a great evening do at Dreamland – tough job!”
