What is The Pips?

Quite simply, The Pips is a website that has been created and designed to help you try and achieve whatever you want to do in the broadcasting industry. Whether you wish to be a presenter, producer, newsreader, a full time radio professional or your aim is to just help out your local community radio station for free, The Pips will try to help you achieve your goal. The Pips cannot guarantee you a job, but it can guarantee you genuine, honest help and advice. You will be able to read, for free, tips and interviews from people who currently work in radio. The interviews will range from people who volunteer for hospital radio, to people who make a living from community radio to some very successful radio professionals who work for big radio stations. The ultimate aim of The Pips is to help everyone, regardless of what you wish to do and where you wish to do it, take that next step closer to fulfilling your ambitions. Radio has always been a tough industry to try and break into, but it is tougher today than ever before. In commercial radio, there are fewer jobs with more people wanting them. You need more determination, ambition and self belief today to get into broadcasting and that is why The Pips is here, to help you.

The People

The co-founder and Director is Gavin (read about Gavin here) and he has been where you are and knows how hard it is to break into radio. Endless letter writing, sending emails, making phone calls and sending demos and sometimes you get very little in return for your effort.
