Dont’ just take our word for it

Since graduating from the NBS I have been part of the Radio City news and sport team, working in an exciting patch that covers plenty of fantastic stories. I’ve recently taken up the position as producer of Radio City Talk’s breakfast show, Kick Off.

Multimedia Journalist/Producer / Radio City
I picked up the skills I now use every day. I benefited from speaking to real journalists, and learning from people with real industry experience. I have great memories from my time there, and am grateful that, thanks to you, I get to do what I do every day.
Nick Howard
Producer/Presenter / Jazz FM Business Breakfast
Whether I’m reporting live from scene, reading the news or attending press conferences, the lessons learnt from the NBS course come in useful every hour of every day. All of that wouldn’t have been possible without the great team at the NBS. If you want a career in radio journalism then there’s no better place to start.
