AIR NEWS is wholly Australian owned and operated, delivering independently produced radio news services specifically for Australian audiences.

WANTING TO GET A START IN RADIO NEWS?

Perhaps this is your opportunity.

AIR News (Australian Independent Radio News)  is always casting around for people to get involved with one of Australia's most progressive radio news services.

Some situations are voluntary, others carry a payment on a sub-contract basis.

So far around 29 of our people have moved on to careers in Radio and Television, so we must be doing something right!

All opportunities are on the basis of the presenter/reporter having their own tools, a home studio for presenting basis and possibly a Smartphone to enable assignment to on the road reporting.

  • Experienced journalists with home studio facilities may be offered roles with AIR News on a contractual basis. The role is based on a piece rate, with an agreed rate for delivery of finished news/sport bulletins as required by the roster.
  • Those that have recently completed journalism courses and wishing to develop a portfolio in order to seek employment within the industry may be offered either voluntary or contracted opportunities to report on events using smartphone recording facilities, or to report or present via home studio.

We are looking for people:

With good or developing news presentation skills, perhaps those involved in or recently completed a radio journalism course, or those that have been involved in the industry and just want a little "hit" of radio news to keep their skills "topped up" and to give them their "fix" of radio every week (we know how addictive the industry is).

There is no need to relocate, those selected would operate from a home studio environment.

If you have a home studio already then you're ahead of the pack, if not, we can assist you to set one up.

Presenters would use the resources of our Virtual Newsdesk which delivers all the required resources to your desktop ready for  editing and presentation. It's important all have digital recording experience and understand the concept of editing, as well as the legalities of news broadcasting. It's also important that applicants have a good ear for quality and professionalism.

Roles available:

National News shifts - notably late mornings and late afternoons during the week, early morning shifts over the weekend. Shifts are usually no more than 3 bulletins long.

State or Territory News shifts - compiling a daily breakfast service for individual regions including the Northern Territory, ACT, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, WA and Sth Australia - advantage to those living in the region - 1 news service a day Mon-Fri.
