UniCast is an online radio station that broadcasts 24/7 from the University of South Australia Magill Campus Radio Studio.
In February 2015, I was voted president of the UniCast Club at the University of South Australia. As president, I was the spokesperson for the club, ran meetings, planned social events, and managed the social media for UniCast with the help of a small team. In my time as president, I worked on building our online presence, improving the website and the mobile app, and making our club bigger to enhance mine and other students’ university experience. I also contributed to episodes of NewsCast, the daily news program created by Radio Journalism students.
At the start of August, 2015, I began a live breakfast show focusing on arts and music. The show aired on UniCast weekly at 6am-8am Thursdays (ACST). In this show, I regularly interviewed local musicians and people in the arts. The show ran until November and was discontinued so that I could prepare to move interstate.
Current Affairs Show
In March, 2015, I began producing and hosting the show Three Girls One Issue with Sowaibah Hanifie (Twitter) and Chelsea Parkes (Twitter). The show aired on UniCast from 4-6pm every Thursday (ACST) and covered various topics under a major theme that changed weekly, with a focus on international issues looked at through an Australian lens. I left the show in November to move interstate.
