I always thought I would work behind the scenes in radio, but Sean saw my potential, nurtured my personality and built my confidence and now I can’t imagine not being behind a microphone.
The decision to sign up for this course was one of the best that I have made for myself. For those 4 months, not only was I challenged with captivating course content every week, but the skills that I learned and had reinforced to me were interchangeable into so many other career and life situations.
The Australian Radio School was the perfect starting point for me to get hands on radio experience, as well as extremely useful insight. It also introduced me to people already in the industry. I’ll never forget my time at the school, mainly because Sean Craig Murphy asks me to write a new quote for this website every year!
