IF INTERESTED IN HOSTING MY OWN SHOW, HOW DO I CHOOSE WHAT TOPIC TO DEVELOP MY CONTENT AROUND?
Our programmers (on-air hosts) are required to come up with content for the week prior to their show, so they are prepared for each broadcast ahead of time. All new shows are required to pitch their show to Fresh Beatzz’s Program Director. Your content can range from socio-political, social justice, history, feminism, politics, music, and so forth. We recommend your show be well researched and provide a unique perspective for our listeners.
Once your completed application is received, your show proposal is sent to our Program Director for review. If they think the proposal is on air ready, it will be approved for a live to air or pre-recorded show. If it isn’t deemed ready to air, that does not mean the show idea is done, our Program Director will compile comments and suggestions on how to make the proposal complimentary to our programming schedule. The applicant will then re-submit the outline and this process continues until the show is deemed ready to go ahead with. While this process can prove time-consuming, it is crucial in ensuring you’re thoroughly prepared for your first show.
