Local radio training project begins

Local public radio station WYSO held the first session of its Community Voices training project Saturday, Jan. 29, with nine students from Dayton and Yellow Springs. They will spend five months in monthly training seminars learning radio production skills.

The nine trainees are Dennie Eagleson, Luke Dennis, Liz Cambron, Sehvilla Mann, Brooke Bryan and Nick Long from Yellow Springs, and Shelly Hulce, Susan Byrnes and Caressa Brown from Dayton.

The course is being taught by Sarah Buckingham, WYSO Community Voices coordinator and Neenah Ellis, WYSO general manager. In May, the trainees will become part of a master class with public radio producer Ira Glass, who will be visiting Dayton as part of a WYSO fundraising event.

“We want to create a community of radio producers in the Miami Valley,” says Ellis, “empowering people to tell local stories. This is the first step.”

The five-month course is a comprehensive introduction to radio production and course topics include audio editing, field recording and microphone technique plus writing for radio, interviewing skills and voice coaching.
