Tim Lee to launch Radio101 announcing course
Fox FM’s Mornings announcer and content and operations manager, Tim Lee, will soon have another project under his belt, as he readies to launch a radio announcing course in February.
Lee said Radio101 will lay out the fundamentals of announcing, then help to steadily build skills including effective h00king, creative flair and meaningful localism.
He acknowledged there were already great industry courses offering a holistic view of the sector, but “Radio 101 is hyper-focused on helping fresh jocks and those about to start their announcing journey level up, ready for their next big on-air gig”.
“Day-jocking is its own discipline that when done right not only complements, but brings the music strategy to life,” Lee added.
He said the inspiration for Radio101 first hit when Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) was upgradings its playout system to Zetta, and the broadcaster asked him to produce a series of tutorial videos.
He said this put him in a ‘how-to’ headspace, and he soon realised how much information and inspiration he’d soaked up while working alongside the likes of Jase Hawkins, Dave Cameron, Jamie Angel, Jay Walkerden and Orion Kelsall, across various radio networks.
Lee told Radio Today he’s hoping to launch Radio101 in February.
