Budding radio broadcast engineers collaborate with Wellington College to get top tips for broadcast
On Wednesday 11 March, three budding radio broadcast engineers from UTC Reading visited Wellington College to meet with students and staff from their successful college radio station, Duke Box, to collaborate and share ideas.
The visit, setup by Dr. Martin Thomas, Engineering teacher at UTC Reading, is the first step in a collaboration between both colleges.
The three UTC Reading students, Benji, Oliver and Reilly, recently setup UTC Reading’s first student-led radio station, UTCR.Live, to help provoke a sense of community, all within one week! Read the full story here.
During the visit, students spent some time fact-finding and sharing best practice and were even able to contribute to the one-hour live Duke Box show that ran in the afternoon.
Benji said: “It was an honour to be toured around Wellington College yesterday. I learnt loads about how they operated their radio station both locally and internationally, as well as interviewing a few students from Wellington, learning about them and their experiences.”
Reilly said: "We had a great time working with the Wellington college students and Elliott who manages the station. It was great to see the equipment they used and how they ran their live show and we took lots of inspiration that we can use at UTCR.Live."
Thank you to Elliott Sharman and his Wellington College students for hosting this session. We look forward to future collaboration.
