This year, 4EB received a grant from The Walkley Foundation to set up a radio newsroom. The aim of the newsroom is to increase the number of culturally and linguistically diverse community journalists into the Australian media by producing current affairs stories to a national audience.
4EB is looking for Expressions of Interest from volunteers at 4EB to become community journalists and report issues from your communities on current affairs radio programs on a national level, such as The Wire and Fair Comment. The Community Media Training Organisation is proudly supporting and delivering the training.
You don’t need to have a university degree to be a community journalist, and you will have the support of experienced journalists who have more than 15 years of experience in the industry all together, along with mentors to guide you into how to write a current affairs story, how to journalistically interview people, and produce a radio story.
If you are interested, please go to www.4eb.org.au/newsroom and fill out the form. If you would like more information about the course and how you can become a community journalist, please contact me ([email protected]) or our journalist Eduardo Jordan on [email protected]. Be quick because there are limited spaces available for the training.
