Radio Journalism in Buenos Aires
from £1395 GBP
to £2495 GBP
Excellent radio placements in stunning Argentina. You'll gain excellent Radio Journalism experience on a programme that takes a political focus, with an analysis of financial market trends, political current affairs in Argentina, Economics (Local and International) and a review of everyday events and news. A wonderful opportunity in an exciting country!
On your placement you will act as an assistant to the producer which will require you to have a high standard of Spanish. You will make calls for the producer, look up news of the past, and research certain topics that will be discussed on the show. All of your work will be conducted in Spanish. You will gain a real insight into the running of a radio production along with a general understanding about current affairs issues in Argentina. You will assist the producer with international news research, and, depending on your level of Spanish may be required to make telephone calls to various local newspapers, etc.A Typical Day
Generally I don't have to arrive at the radio station until 4 in the afternoon, although this varies according to what's going on in the news etc. The show is on air from 5 - 8 so I get home again about half 8. I'm expected to arrive prepared so it means doing some work before I go in.
Again the amount I have to do varies from day to day depending on current world affairs but generally I spend a couple of hours reading the international English speaking newspapers and finding articles of interest then writing reports and doing translations related to them.
When I arrive the first thing to do is have some mate (a local drink) and chat to everyone! Then I write up whatever I've prepared ready for the approval of the head of the production team. Sometimes they use it and sometimes not but its all good practice anyway. Sometimes they will have things they need me to do when I arrive so I get on with that too. Whilst the show is actually on air, my job is to answer phones if everyone else is busy and generally run errands and, of course, serve mate! Sometimes it gets pretty frantic with guests coming in and everything but its all fun!
And that's a typical day for me! The good thing is that its really flexible so if I want to go in earlier or leave at a different time I can. Sometimes I work 3 days a week and sometimes 4 or even the whole week. It just depends on what's going on and that's what I like about it. There's no chance to be bored!What you'll gain from doing this Project:
