Telford Students WoW and Launch New Radio Station!

Edinburgh’s Telford College is delighted to announce the launch of its new college radio, Radio WoW, which will begin broadcasting from the College’s studios from Monday 22 November 2010.

Available to listen online at, Radio WoW is the creation of the ‘HNC Creative Industries: Radio’ staff and students, who as part of their course study digital production techniques, as well as develop the skills of interviewing, music programming, digital operations, newsroom operations and radio commercials production.

Explaining more, Radio Broadcasting Lecturer, Conor Wright said:
This radio broadcasting course at Telford is specifically designed to provide learners with a wide range of skills needed for a career in the radio industry anywhere in the world. For over 10 years we have been broadcasting in the College and for the past two years broadcasting online. This year however, it’s all going to get bigger, better and louder. There’s a new face, a new name, and a new group of students who want to make it easier for everyone at the College and beyond to hear the station’s output and to get involved in the radio station.

One of the radio students on the course, Callum Gallacher said:
It will be WoW Radio – Your voice, your music. We believe radio broadcasting should involve the input of the listener as much as it involves the input of the producers and presenters – this way giving the people exactly what they want to hear. WoW originated from our student handbook, which is entitled Words of Wisdom, so we thought people should listen because it will bring them what they want, when they want. It will bring them the music they want, the chat they want and the entertainment they want!

Edinburgh’s Telford College’s is an excellent place to study radio broadcasting with its purpose-built, sound-proof digital radio studios in its modern north Edinburgh campus. The studios contain the latest state-of-the-art equipment, including mixing desks, speakers, microphones, a collection of production music and sound effects, a one person radio presenter-type self drive studio, an interview studio and a master control-room which are all equipped to professional broadcasting standards. Previous Telford broadcasters have gone onto work in the radio industry at stations such as BBC Radio One, Galaxy Radio, Borders Radio, Leith FM and other stations throughout Scotland and the UK.

Radio WoW will be broadcasting live from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 10am; and 12pm to 2pm, commencing Monday 22 November 2010. For further information visit
