WRIR’s Production Team presents:

Hangout!

If you’ve always wanted to volunteer at WRIR, but don’t know where to start, why not hang out with our volunteers who are part of our Production Committee? What they do is exciting and beneficial to the quality of shows produced at the station! The goal of the team is to train WRIR volunteers on audio production and editing using Audacity and Audition. You get hands-on experience creating station IDs, promos and possibly run sound for a band or show host. People who are interested in hosting a talk show learn how to create a pilot and then ultimately a show. Current volunteers hone their skills to make their shows sound as pristine as RadioLab or This American Life.

They meet every Saturday, 2-4 p.m., at the station, 1621 W. Broad Street, 2nd floor, above The Camel. Best to email the team to let them know you are interested: production@wrir.org. Thanks to Baylen for starting the team and Cameron and Krysti for leading the weekly hangouts.

But don’t take my word for it. Listen to Avery, one of our volunteers:

Hosted by JR and guest producers, it airs alternating Saturdays at 5 p.m. JR shares how this show can help Richmond’s music scene and offers insights to anyone interested in hosting a program on WRIR.
