Young Broadcaster Finalists
Help us to choose the voices of the next generation

Here at the BBC we've been searching for new, young broadcasters to be part of our forthcoming Generation Next season.

Generation Next is a week of special programmes on BBC World Service radio and dedicated to understanding and exploring the world through the eyes of the next generation.

After talent-scouting our way across the UK, hours of listening and a "voice coaching" day with experts at the BBC, we've finally shortlisted these five young broadcasters. Now we want you to help us choose the outright winners.

The winning broadcasters will be hosting our special programmes on the radio throughout our Generation Next week from 2nd - 10th December. They will also host the highlights from the season's programmes at the end of the week!

What you need to do

Listen to each of our young broadcasters, choose your favourite and then tell us what you particularly like about their voice and their broadcasting style.

Your comments really count - they will all be considered by the judges who will make the final decision on behalf of the BBC and listeners like you.

Thanks for taking part!
