How You Can Be a Voice of BBC Radio Leicester
Do you have what it takes to take to the mic and have a love for your local area. BBC Local Radio is on the hunt for new voices and anyone over the age of 18 can audition and no previous experience is required.
The BBC has announced details for its biggest ever talent search to find the next generation of radio stars. All 39 local radio stations across England and the Channel Islands are hosting open auditions for New Voices on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September.
In Leicester, BBC Radio Leicester will be holding auditions at BBC Leicester, 9 St Nicholas Place, Leicester LE1 5LB on Saturday 28 September. Registration 10.00am-4.30pm
Hopefuls will have 60 seconds to impress a panel of judges. They could tell a story about something they care about, something local, something personal… anything as long as it’s unique.
In Leicester the judges will be presenter Aminata Kamara (winner, The Next Big Voice talent search), Namrata Varia (Producer, The Mid-Morning Show) and Pete Wardman (Programmes Editor).
The judges are looking for people who have the potential to contribute to existing shows, present their own one-off programme or even land a regular slot on a station.
The auditions will be first-come-first-served, so everyone is asked to make sure they check the times of the auditions and arrive promptly for the best chance to be seen. For the Leicester auditions, all people will have to do is turn up at the venue, and register before 4.30pm, prepared to impress.
