The production team cover all elements of production. This includes producing all of URY’s events, from live music nights to the YUSU elections, as well as producing and presenting content for our production team shows. If you fancy being a radio producer after uni, or just want to get involved with a pre-existing show rather than having your own: production is the place for you!
Our team works on reports, analysis and discussion across our shows, from live football to our flagship shows URY Newshour and the York Sport Report. We also lead on major events, like our Candidate Interview Night speaking to every YUSU candidate, and commentating on Roses every year. Whether you want to report or just chat, the News and Sports team has a place for you!
We help to promote URY On Air, Online, and On Tap. Coming up with new ways to share the great content the station produces. We maintain the social media, design merchandise and organise competitions. Formally the business team, marketing was formed in 2013. If you’re the creative type who is social media savvy, then the marketing team is for you!
The engineering team regularly record and broadcast our live music sessions, set up events both on and off campus, and not forgetting keeping us on air. We also keep the station running, fixing and making thing to make the station better. If you have an interest in sound engineering or electronic engineering then this is perfect for you. Many of our projects also combine with software, so if you want to practice any of your computing knowledge on a variety of projects then this is also a good team to learn and develop. While those with experience in these things are great, we also work to help train members who have had no prior experience in some or all of these areas. Being on the engineering team is a great opportunity to gain a variety of experience, and many of our alumni have gone on and worked in the industry.
Computing team fixes stuff, whether that be web development to helping with Outside Broadcasts. We have strong connection with all of the other teams. We used a variety of different languages (such as Go and PHP) on variety on operating systems. Interested of finding out the magic that happens at the background of a radio station? No prior knowledge is required.
