ARN creates for staff a podcast exploring radio

ARN has launched a podcast series as part of its The Science and Art of Radio project, offering employees an in-depth exploration of radio.

The project, available to all ARN staff, offers training and mentoring with this Science and Art of Radio Podcast series covering industry news, music fundamentals, show production, talent management, digital content creation, the role of a content director, and more. There is no set host, it will be a collaborative effort from within ARN, and will be regularly updated and expanded.

ARN Chief Content Officer Duncan Campbell, pictured left with WSFM Content Director Mike Byrne recording a podcast, said:

“Reflecting on my early days as a junior content director, I had abundant opportunities to learn and grow – opportunities that aren’t as prevalent today. As Australia’s leading audio company, ARN is committed to offering its people the chance to develop and become tomorrow’s content leaders. I’m passionate about ensuring our industry nurtures the next generation of leaders because, without them, we won’t have an industry.”

The Science and Art of Radio project was launched last year, and already includes Adopt a Show, which pairs regional breakfast shows with senior content directors from metropolitan markets for mentorship, Breakfast Basics, which is a regular call with regional breakfast shows in smaller markets to discuss ideas and execution and ARN will introduce Adopt a CD later on this year.

The podcast and program aim to upskill ARN employees towards career advancement and progression.
