Radio jockeying Course

Radio jockeying course a hit among students


THE new add-on course on radio jockeying introduced by Hansraj College this year is attracting students from all streams. The college opened its admission for the certificate course in radio jockeying, anchoring and news reading from July 16. The last date for submission of forms is July 31. 


   "We have got a good response from students both within and outside Delhi University. Students from all streams be it science, commerce or humanities have shown interest. Students from the School of Open Learning have also applied. We have received a few applications from senior citizens too," said Prabhat Kumar, course coordinator and faculty, Hansraj College. 


   The college had decided to start two new add-on courses from this academic year ie certificate course in travel and tourism and another in mass communication. "The media sector is booming and it is providing several opportunities for the youth today. There is a shift from the traditional method of news reading and radio jockeying. The course will update students with the latest trends," said N C Bansal, chairman, R K Films and Media Academy, Delhi, which has developed the three-month course. "The course will introduce students to the nuances of facing the camera, body language, voice modulation and knowledge of various software used," added Bansal. 


   The college also organised an orientation programme to introduce students to the fields of anchoring and radio jockeying and about the opportunities available. Around 200 students participated in the orientation programme. "This course will try to enhance a student's personality. It makes a big difference in the way you speak and present yourself. So apart from news reading, anchoring and radio jockeying, a student can enter into event management, live events like quizzes, etc," he said. 


   "The college is in touch with the radio community to provide practical training to students," informed Kumar. Selected candidates will have to appear for an interview in August. The classes will start from September this year and they will be held on alternate days for two hours. "Currently we are planning to take 30 students, but if the response is good and there are many more students interested, we can think of running one more batch," Bansal said.
