DEAR DEIDRE

OUT OF CONTROL

DEIDRE SAYS: You are a long time working these days, so it is important to find something you enjoy.

Social media brings plenty of routes into broadcasting.

Check YouTube for ideas and do your own research to check your radio presenting course is credible.

To build experience, there are still opportunities through hospital radio, which is wonderful for entertaining patients.
