J.B. Bras shares his experience at Radio Indigo

The Department of Journalism undertakes various activities for the nurturing of its students. And each of these activities impact our students in various ways. Our recent visit to the Radio Indigo Station seems to have had an effect on our very own Angolan student J.B. Bras . He narrates his experience:

12Technology is a curse when it’s used for the wrong purpose but it’s a blessing otherwise.

Being a regular listener to the radio, I always wondered how the whole process of producing a radio program works; right from news, music programs and everything else that we hear on radio.

As part of our curriculum at the department of Journalism, St. Xavier’s College, we had a visit to Radio Indigo Station. Here is where most of my queries regarding the functioning of a radio station were answered. I had the chance to learn and witness closely how a Radio Station operates. That was awesome!!!

Most of us think the RJ or news presenter is the most important person in the radio station as they are more prominent. But we don’t realize that there are other professionals and departments, which are sustaining the pillars of the radio station. Professionals from Marketing, Public Relation, IT, Production also play a very important role in a radio station.

During the visit, we were taken to different departments, where we learnt practically the whole process of producing a radio program. Just to add more enthusiasm on my stay at the Radio Indigo Studio, I was given the opportunity to go on air and amazingly witness the creativity of RJ Ayesha Baretto. I also learnt the art of multi- tasking for a radio show.

I was never so fascinated about radio as I am now. After this experience, I feel I should just work for a while in a Radio Station.

Way to go Bras! The sky is a limit for you.
