Commentaire / Comment
The radio industry is the recipient of top quality RRC/KICK FM grads, who received LITERAL hands on training to cut their teeth in the radio broadcast industry. As a cre-comm graduate I would like to reflect on my 'multi-tiered' radio education.

The required classes were valuable in many aspects, however provided no live hands on experience in a professional setting. Rather our newscasts were recorded in edit suites with the instructor running from room to room. I have a lot of notes from that class that I'll never read.
Here's what I remember. Volunteering on KICK, of my own free will, taught me 1000 times more about how to "BE" on the radio. How to operate, how to host a show, engage a nervous or uninteresting guest, marketing, programming etc.
When I landed my first gig in the biz, it was my KICK FM experience that got me there, and that allowed me to confidently perform as an operator/technician and part-time on air host.
My education from KICK was invaluable. This little station needs the comunity to rally behind it, as KICK has openly supported every local community it could.
In my 6 years of experience with KICK FM and Rick Baverstock, station manager, I have found the station and Rick to run with high ethical standards, to always have the door open for students wanting to learn more, and continued support via reference or helping put a demo together.

I support KICK FM's licence to continue as it currently does, to the benefit of all other stations who WILL hire KICK announcers in the future.

thank you
