My dad has always said to “grab opportunities” and from a young girl he has repeatedly told me to grab the opportunities and to get my foot in the door. The course I am doing, Television and Broadcasting is a very competitive one and having experience in different fields can really help both your cv and future employer see how enthusiastic and dedicated you are to the field.
So recently I announced I had been given a radio show on Pure FM, the University of Portsmouth radio. It is named Lunch with Rhi and will air every Thursday from 1-3 from 3rd March 2016! It is being sponsored by Feed in Gunwharf Quays and I am very excited to be the host of my own show.
Having begun writing my script I realised how much content I would need for the two hour show. I slowly began coming up with the different segments and areas I would have on the show including Whats the link and Getting to know RHI. I have also set up a twitter (@LunchwithRhi) and a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Lunch-with-Rhi-1836322556594592/), which at time of writing this had 50 likes in one day! I was absolutely astonished at the support I have had so far, even before my first show!
Each week the show will be based on a theme with the first being “Getting to know me”. I will be playing a variety of different songs with songs from Justin Bieber to Coldplay. Listeners are more than welcome to tweet or message me requests for songs or for any segment requests they may have.
