That said, there are other news organisations 40 RADIO NEWS which provide effective news coverage for the many stations across the UK which cannot staff their own news operations. IRN – independent radio news – is one such organisation (see appendix B). Based in London, the company will run news desks similar to those of the BBC, manned by news editors and assistant editors and through which reports will be checked, edited and approved. Writers will script stories to go with reports and to be read by newsreaders; digital editing will happen as described above and bulletins will be put together which on occasion might be indistinguishable from those broadcast by the BBC.

THE PRODUCER: GETTING THE JOB Many will agree that it’s the best job in radio. You shape the programme, but you don’t have to put your voice and personality into the product. Your goal is a professionally made finished product which the audience enjoys and with which the production team is satisfied. Many college and privately run courses do touch upon radio production, but however well you have learned the job on paper, there is no replacing experience. A producer can start as a studio assistant or researcher (see below), and the really keen would-be producer might well find him or herself fresh out of college and doing one of those jobs unpaid.

New titles with accompanying identifying information are fed into the computer on a weekly basis, and the computer then works out what should be played and when. So in such cases even the individual programme producer won’t necessarily have any say over what records are included in his or her programme. Music stations will have their own news programmes and the occasional documentary; there will also be star interviews and other items of interest which don’t involve the straight playing of music.
