Radio Training Institute students launch pop up radio station RTI FM

The Advanced Radio students of the Radio Training Institute are launching a temporary radio station, RTI FM, to be live streamed from Sunday 24th of May, 2015 until the 30th of May, 2015.

RTI FM will be completely hosted by the students with a wide array of shows and content, from special interest shows (travel, lifestyle, games, and genre specific music shows) to news and current affairs, and personality-driven breakfast and drive shows, showcasing the students’ talents and providing experience in a real radio broadcasting setting.

Operations Manager Darcy Thomson says,

“Basically we’re making a fully fledged commercial radio station, from scratch, in two weeks. It’s a lot of work but I’m confident it’s going to sound great.”

Listeners can go to the website ( to live stream, and find show schedules, student bios, and social media links.

AMT Pty Ltd’s Steve Ahern, who wrote the 6 month course, and guest lectures several units, says,

“This simulation will allow them to showcase both their on air talents and their other skills including music directing, website skills, sales, copy, voiceovers, and production. It will be worth a listen, especially if you’re looking for new employees.”

Applications for the next intake of Advanced Radio students, as well as RTI’s other short courses, are open. Visit
