Staff of the week!
Best performing Staff Member
Each week, we choose someone to be the best performing staff of the week, for their work in a specific department. This week, we have selected Will for their amazing work in Radio! Here's what he had to say:
Hey everyone! My name is Will, I'm one of the NA on-air presenters here on UpBeat Radio! I've been loving every minute of it, I have always loved radio, after taking a station tour back in high school I was hooked, did 4 years of Television Production before switching gears into the audio engineering side of things, having been a soundboard operator for a couple of my high schools plays its what really got me going. Been doing online radio for over 7 years off and on, UpBeat has been amazing in letting me discover my passion for radio and music while making some incredible friends.
Everyone has been super supportive and an absolute joy to work with! my interests outside of radio include, music, video games, streaming and multimedia production. I'm currently looking to pursue a college degree in audio engineering and Media Journalism. I would 100% recommend anyone who has an interest in radio to become part of the team!
Meet your Mentor
Storm - Media Mentor
Hi, I'm your 4th favourite mentor, also known as Storm. My job is to edit and check over our amazing reporters' articles! As some of you already know I am a sheep from Wales and I like to ̶e̶a̶t̶ ̶g̶r̶a̶s̶s̶ play Minecraft, help around the media department and develop (much to the dismay of Toby and Destiny who have to answer all my questions 😂). I always try to make upbeat a more positive experience for all who join, so make sure to apply for the media department at https://upbeat.pw/apply. If you have any questions or just want a chat my DMs are always open for a chat!! I'm looking forward to seeing you all around!!
Here's what his manager, Kacper, had to say about him:
Storm is an absolute legend and I'm so proud of how he's grown over the time he's been a Mentor. He's the longest-serving current mentor, and he does his job amazingly. He's very friendly, funny, and an overall joy to be around. I'm very happy to have him as a Media Mentor, and I can't wait to see where life takes him next!
