All presenters on airUK must be able to:
- Link songs appropriately, either with jingles or spoken segues;
- Provide any scripted messaging accurately and confidently;
- Handle any technical problems with good humour and confidence (sometimes it helps to make a ‘joke’ of the error)
No presenters will use obscene language on air, nor permit guests to do so.
Presenters will not provide any negative commentary against the radio station and any comments against other stations should be avoided, or obviously light-hearted.
Presenters may be required to relay breaking news and, where this is required, would not necessarily be expected to provide a ‘polished’ performance. Breaking news stories should be verified before broadcast and should appear on at least two of the following news sources before being aired:
- BBC News (online, TV or Radio);
- Reuters News Agency;
- The Press Association;
- Sky News; or
- ITN / Channel 4 News (same source provider).
