Following on from the success of last years winners “Just Shuffle” CRY’s Community Development Officer Darragh Parker is very impressed with the current crop of TY students who are full of enthusiasm and given time have the potential to become accomplished broadcasters and was full of praise for the students “Both groups took on the difficult task of hosting mainly talk based shows and went in search of varied opinions from a large group of Pobail Scoil Students and the Skills that the Students learnt over the last number of weeks will really stand to them” says Darragh. “ They have touched on Research and Interview skills , got to grips with using recording equipment and hosted both On location and In Studio interviews while of course gaining some valuable project management experience.
