Student Broadcaster of the Year 2019

Are you a compelling student broadcaster with a nose for a good story? We're looking for someone who brings boundless enthusiasm and strong editorial judgement in video or audio broadcasting. You need to be able to communicate well, and have a fascination with news and current affairs.

We’ll be looking for someone who embodies the BBC’s values of impartiality, trustworthiness and excellence, and who’s shown they can serve the needs and interests of a student audience.

If you win this award, you’ll be offered a work experience placement with the Today Programme team in London, or elsewhere in the UK if you’d prefer.
