AFDA introduces a one year radio and podcasting course for 2018. Digital’s impact on radio has not just expanded the landscape of media competition, but also emphasised the need for radio practitioners to work harder at “super-serving” multimedia audiences.
With podcasts, videos and live streaming becoming de rigueur, radio in Africa is clearly not lagging in digital transformation.
“Ten years ago it was enough for a radio producer and presenter to help provide content in audio; now, they need to be equipped in the digital and video space – producers and presenters need a multi-crafted skillset going forward, to meet a dynamic and demanding medium.”says Trish Taylor, CEO of Primedia, Western Cape in themediaonline.co.za
AFDA, The School for the Creative Economy is introducing a new one year Higher Certificate course in Radio and Podcasting in 2018.

The course is about bridging into an AFDA Undergraduate degree by learning the basic skills needed to work as an assistant for a radio station or in podcasting and to also provide students with the necessary skills to meet the demands of digital transformation in the rapidly changing and growing world of radio and podcasting in the creative economy.
