Youngsters get behind the mike at BBC radio station
9:00am Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
YOUNG people from Halton have been treated to training at the BBC Radio 3 studios in Salford.
Budding presenters travelled to Media City to work alongside producers and studio managers and even had a go behind the microphones.
The week long CRMZ Radio Project called Wicked Wireless aimed to teach participants the skills to produce their own radio shows in Widnes.
Kirtsy Dyas, aged 17, from Widnes, who attended the programme said: "The trip has made us think about the future and what we would like to do. We would love to create our own radio in CRMZ. The project week was amazing."
They also received training from former radio presenter and youth worker Georgia Carney and were taught skills around script writing, programme planning and presenting.
Halton Youth Provision is looking at establishing a longer term in house radio project at CRMZ.
