Learning Outcome

"By the completion of this course you will have the basic skills, knowledge and attitude to become a member

of Sage FM Online Radio Station and use its studios to present an overnight live-to-air radio program within the guidelines of operations manual.



You will be required to do ‘assessments’. These are a project, and a multiple choice quiz

that demonstrate that you have the skills, knowledge and attitude required to go on air competently.


The Desk Test

This is a mini program – 15-20 minutes as though you are broadcasting live on air. It will include; your own selection of music, you presenting, a short interview and use of the studio equipment.

The idea is to show us what music you will play on the radio station, your presenting skill and style, and that you can use the equipment well enough to go on air.


The concept test

There will be a multiple-choice quiz at the end of the course.

The quiz will help reinforce what you’ve learned

with a few questions from each week. This test will be marked, but it is most importantly a self-test for you to check your knowledge.

All radio and TV presenters have to start somewhere, and it’s right where you are now. After completing the radio and TV Presenter Training Course, and preparing your desk test, you will be able to present on one of Sage FM Online Radio Stations daytime or overnight music programs. From there, you may be able to move onto the roster for a specialist music or talks program, some presenters will later make it all the way to a peak-time program. Sage FM Online Radio Station also has an annual Programming Review where we invite new program applications from both current members and the public, so you may even have the opportunity to start your own brand new program which is basically the main aim.
