How to Keep Listeners Updated on COVID-19 Online.

Course Brief

The radio sector will play a critical role in keeping Ireland safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The public are relying on trusted sources for news and information. The government and all its agencies are relying on the radio sector to be a trusted source of information. Therefore, you play a central role. We need local and regional news and not simply national updates.

The sector will face less guests in studio, but will still have to fill news and talk shows. Sport has ceased and the public have an insatiable appetite for news and information.

We have designed an online masterclass to help you consider smart broadcasting on-air and online during the COVID-19 pandemic.
