Travel News Masterclass
The Travel News Masterclass on Saturday was a really big success – 14 attendees from across the UK visited INRIX’s Birmingham studio and got hands on with broadcasting, creating their own traffic and travel demo bulletin and learning the ins and outs of gathering information for bulletins from INRIX’s sources.
Free Radio’s Deputy Programme Controller David ‘Salty’ Salt gave a guest speech about the importance of travel news to local radio output, adding that extra sparkle to the day.
We’d like to say a special thanks to Adam Crowther and Brody Swain from INRIX for their hard work in putting the day together, and to everyone who took part and made it such a success!
