EASTBOURNE YOUTH RADIO – EYR 2020
Run by the Creative Media students at East Susssex College, Eastbourne Youth Radio hits the airwaves every November. Across three days and two nights, the schedule is filled with local school pupils presenting, singing, reading poetry, conducting interviews and getting hands-on experience of live broadcasting. Meanwhile the media students provide technical support to the schools as well as broadcasting their own content through the nights.
Every year EYR features the flagship show 'Meet the Media' where we interview a different variety of industry professionals from journalism to radio and tv. Whatever your ambition in the media industry, there is someone to make contact with. Our students have gone on to roles at Heart FM, More Radio, Love Productions, Lime pictures, Twofour Group and Sussex Business Times.
