Frequently asked questions

Does it matter that I have no experience in radio?
Not at all, most people who do the Introduction to Radio course are in the same boat as you.
Could I be a radio star?
Can you tell a good story or a funny joke? Do you look at life differently? Can make people laugh or cry or shout or think? If you answered YES to any of those questions radio could be the career for you. You don't need a deep voice or an encyclopaedic knowledge of music. And it doesn't matter what your background is. (Hell, Cosi from hit107 used to be a pig farmer!) You just need the passion to take the next step to find out whether you’ve got what it takes to crack a job in radio.
Is Australian Radio School (or ARS) right for me?
Australian Radio School has been established in Adelaide for over 10 years. In that time, over 400 people have graduated to jobs in radio and TV all over Australia. In April 2010, Sean Craig Murphy from Triple M took over the radio school from Adelaide radio legend David Day.
