On February 14, the second half of the VOTY Radio Broadcasting Academy happened at the Creativoices Productions in Makati City. The number of participants doubled, including current VOTY members who have recently become part of VOTY’s radio shows.
The first part of the half-day workshop focused on scriptwriting. DJ Denn and DJ Elaine, 2 of the anchors of Generation Y&Z Radio, facilitated the workshop. They taught the participants about the different parts of a radio program, how to write spiels and how to create concepts for segments. The participants were given a group activity where they have to present a segment of a youth-oriented radio show, based on the principles they learned about scriptwriting.
After scriptwriting, another VOTY member, Jana Banana Abejero, discussed about Radio Broadcasting Ethics. Focused on ethical practices for broadcasting for the youth. The participants did a role-play on the right and wrong practices in broadcasting, which Jana supplemented with additional information and knowledge.
Towards the end of the workshop, VOTY broadcasters took turns sharing their experience as part of VOTY’s radio programs, and how VOTY has helped them discover and live their passion even at their young age. The VOTY Radio Broadcasting Academy concluded with some inspirational words from VOTY founder, Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales.
