Get involved

Smoke Media is always looking for new members.

Membership is free – you don’t need any special skills or experience, and we don’t ask for applications or conduct interviews. We don’t care about your course or campus. As long as you’re excited about creating quality local journalism and programming, that’s enough for us!

Why?

Being involved in student media is a great way to give your employability a boost. You’ll learn technical skills like how to operate cameras and radio studio equipment, along with transferable skills like writing and teamwork.

Our alumni have gone into careers with the BBC, Global Radio and many more top-tier employers, and we invite these alumni back for regular events.

If you review a gig, film or play for us, we can often arrange free press tickets for you and a friend. There’s also plenty of chances to interview your favourite artists.

We’ve collected all the reasons you might want to join us together at join.smoke.media.

If you want a live radio show, think about when you’d like it to be. Some evening slots can be quite competitive. We have playlisted shows before 5pm, but if you’d rather play your own stuff, consider a specialist after-5pm show instead.
