Radio station is out of this world

Thursday 14th June 2012

Television presenter and Capital FM DJ Becky Hayes passed on broadcasting tips to students at University Campus Barnsley.

The Visit Britain host and former FHM model offered voice coaching sessions to students working on the university's forthcoming online radio station.

Becky said: "I am really excited to be working with the UCB radio team.

"The media can be a tough industry to break into and I want to share with them the knowledge I've picked up over the years to help get the station up and running."

Becky is one of a number of experienced media professionals who will be working with students over the summer.

Work began on MARS Radio last month and the station is set to launch in September.

Head of UCB Pete Birkby said: "The setting up of this station is very important for the campus.

"The training will provide our students with the skills and experience of working with professionals from local and national radio stations.

"It will also give them great opportunities to promote themselves to a worldwide audience."
