Video killed the radio star? – Never!

It’s no wonder that we no longer hear the term, “you have a good face for radio!” That’s because as the media becomes more globalised, there is greater cross-over between TV, print and radio. Radio has gained a somewhat glamorous image in recent years, disseminating the very latest music, news and current affairs. If you’re keen to get your dulcet tones over the airways, why not try out a Journalism placement at Colombo’s TNL Radio Network?


The station is made up of three radio channels, TNL – predominately playing music and aimed at a younger audience, Lite FM for easy-listeners and a more middle-aged target listenership, plus the Sinhalese language Asura FM. TNL has a partnership with Voice of America so plays tunes from the US’ top 40 charts on a regular basis.


Located in Kollupitiya, Colombo, the station has modern audio recording equipment and a vast music library. Volunteers on journalism placements of three months or more are welcome to work here. You can join the news team in the studio or out in the field if you’re interested in news or if music is more to your tastes, you can shadow the presenters or producers of different programmes. Before long, you could even be hosting your own weekend show!


Your supervisor Bimalee De Silva has been in radio for several years now and will be ready to share her skills and knowledge with you.  Just make sure you give us a shout out when you go on air!
