Darjeeling — A group of four BA Mass Communication students from Assam Don Bosco University Guwahati undergoing month long campus radio internship at Radio Salesian 90.8 FM are hosting one-hour live radio program from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday since 21st December 2018. They will conclude their intense hands-on radio internship training on 4th January 2018.
Hailing from Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland, the interns aftercompletion of their training hope to start web radio back at Don Bosco University Guwahati.
“On our return after training, we are eager to start up campus radio at Don Bosco University,” says Shisha Mary from Meghalaya who hopes to host her own show entitled Stories Behind Music.
Her companion from Meghalaya Mr Khrawkupar hopes to host the show called ‘This day in History’. He also adds that with the guidance of the RJ’s of Radio Salesian he wants to record and package more shows.
Sushmita Bhowmick from Assam says, “It has been a fabulous experience with the RJ’s, going on Field trips, conducting live interviews, learning about handling sound mixers, etc.” She also adds “The RJs’ have been a constant support throughout our internship period.”
“I am now ready to handle live mic,“ says a confidant and poised Theja from Nagaland as she assures RJ Samir her mentor at Radio Salesian. She adds that, “these had been a good learning experience, helping me to develop my personality.”
The idea of radio internship blossomed after the visit of two Don Bosco University faculty members last October.
