Want to help York make incredible award winning radio?

Want to join one of the best, largest and most diverse societies the university has to offer?

Whether you want to hear your voice played out on the airwaves, break the biggest news stories as they happen, play with state-of-the-art studios and computer systems, or just plain have fun, then URY is the place for you.

What Can I Do?

Of course, everyone wants to be on the radio! Presenting is as easy as baking a cake (disclaimer: I can't bake cakes) and you don't have to sign up at Freshers' Fair or at the start of a term to get your very own show! Just take a look at our schedule, if you can see a gap, there's no reason you couldn't fill it!

As well as presenting, URY also has 10 teams of students which look after all aspects of running a radio station. Whether that be creating the content or maintaining the station. To find out more about our teams, and what each entails, please go to the teams page.

How Do I Get A Show?

Getting your own show is easy as pie! First thing is to make sure you are a paid member, you can do this through the YUSU website.

Once you have paid, you will need to create a MyRadio account, from there you will be able to sign up to training! Under the "Get On Air" section, then click "Get Studio Trained" and take your pick of training sessions, click join and you are good to go! If there aren't any slots available, email our Training Co-ordinator at training@ury.org.uk.

During training, we will show you how to use the studio and how to apply for a show. Shows are typically one hour long, scheduled once a week.

Easy peasy!
