Message from Joe Rawson Broadcast Journalist Peak FM based in Chesterfield

“Although we are a fairly small station, we are of course part of one of the biggest radio groups in the UK and since being taken over by News UK local journalism and content is at the heart of what we do.

We’d be able to offer placements working alongside the news team, which involves going out to report on stories, recording audio and video, editing using adobe pro tools and burley.
