Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the full process for becoming a program host?

First you need to become a volunteer with us, which you can do by filling in the form on the Volunteer With Us page. From there you will be invited in to meet Chris (the boss) and Jo (does all the work) to discuss your program idea.  Program applications are open across the year, so get in touch with your great ideas!

What does a show involve?

The best way to find out is to listen to one! Find our program guide here. In terms of commitment, you’ll need to be consistent. If its a weekly show then these are usually recorded a couple of weeks before going to air, and can be done a few at a time, so you can still take holidays and work around your committment.

Do I need any qualifications?

No qualifications are needed. Any skills like audio editing will allow you to make the show even better, but this isn’t essential- we will teach you the radio basics.

If you are based outside Brisbane you will need a good home recording set-up able to produce broadcast quality recordings without background noise, and some audio editing skills are recommended but not essential.

What can I submit?

You can submit any idea that you think is brilliant! You can read your favourite magazines, books, websites, or create your own original content.

If you’ve got other questions, email contact@readingradio.org.au or call us on 3831 1296 and we’ll 100% get back to you. Promise!
