The training conducted practical experience in production of radio programmes for Live FM – Rehoboth. The methodology focused on group works, practical activities, presentations and field activities. The approach had the following strands:

  • Interaction and participation to identify their methods and techniques producing programs
  • Embracing ICTs such as mobile phones to improve the station’s interaction with its audience
  • Monitoring the application of skills and integration of ICTs in broadcasting in order to provide feedback on the impact.

After the training and during the monitoring period, a series of interactive interviews with correspondents, station manager and facilitator was carried out to identify challenges, successes and identify areas where further support is needed.
