Presenting Radio Programs

I think I don’t have spoken about this subject ever, but I’m was in the radio studio tonight to make my radio program.

I love making radio programmes. Talking while there is almost nobody around you.

And at the same time, there are many listeners.

Actually, this is a weird feeling too, but I’m grateful to have this opportunity. In the beginning, I was very nervous to present. But after a few times, you are getting so familiar with it.

It feels like I’m home.

At least that’s what I feel when I present. An open field with so many opportunities.

I present news and information in my region and another program about local politics. I love doing very much.

This is me when I’m presenting my radio program in the studio. Today I presented the news-and-information-in-my-region program which will be broadcasted tomorrow and one day after tomorrow. Both twice a day.

I’ll prepare myself to take some food and I take some water with me (which I forgot today) and some candy. I love to snack when music plays.

I also have to stay focused. And that is sometimes difficult for me.

As I told you I am glad to have this opportunity because I learn a lot about being a presenter, how to get engaged with your audience, I learned who I can be as a presenter, how to read the news and have my own voice as a presenter. All those things come together when you present. Sometimes you do the program alone, sometimes together.

The voice I also should have when I present my political radio program live. This will be on Thursday every three weeks.

It’s a different tone than when you record the program first. When you’re living, you have to be at your very best. You have to push yourself to get along with the pressure. You can’t do it over again. And then you’ll notice where you’re boundaries are. And how to stay focused when you are in life. Once I was distracted that I forgot to tune in and there was silence… For about a minute. That is something you have to avoid.
