Glen Morrow has won the RMIT Media Prize for Radio, presented by radioInfo for his outstanding academic results in the program.
Bruce Berryman, course co-ordinator for Radio 1 & 2 at RMIT has told radioinfo:
“Glen also won the award for his overall participation in the radio courses. Glen’s long experience in community radio was a real asset to the program and to the other members of the cohort.
“Not only was he able to provide extra technical assistance to other students, but he actively engaged in discourse surrounding contemporary issues affecting the radio industry. Glen’s feature production and program presentation were of a consistently high standard and have subsequently found him in high demand at Melbourne’s 3RRR-FM,” said Mr Berryman.
Glen has been involved in community radio for the last 20 years, in both on-air and production roles. He presented a Saturday morning breakfast show on PBS FM (Melbourne) called ‘A Dog’s Breakfast’ for 12 years and recently has been involved with Melbourne Independent radio 3RRR doing fill ins and volunteer production/podcast work for both music and talk based programs.
Glen says: “I enrolled in the Bachelor Of Communications (Media) at RMIT to give me further experience and develop in both the theoretical and practical aspects of current and future media. I specifically chose RMIT due to the high quality and recognition of this course within the industry. I have a very strong passion for all aspects of radio – and the Media course has allowed me to explore this from different angles and perspectives.”
Glen works professionally for Vision Australia managing the Audio Production Unit in Kooyong, Victoria – and his success in winning the radioInfo award is another example of his obvious talent for radio production and presentation.
