There are not a lot swiss radio stations made exclusively by youngsters. And most of these stations are internet streams. The only exception is Radio 4TNG (“for the next generation”) out of lovely Winterthur which can be received via DAB+. Radio 4TNG offers young people the opportunity to sneak into the world of radio and learn the tricks and skills to become a future radio hero.
Founder Cedric Wiesendanger: “My goal is to provide a platform for all young people who want to pursue a career in radio. Here they can gain experience and learn the craft. Job offers as a presenter at a big radio station are very rare and much sought-after. Therefore it’s a big plus if you’ve already have some experience and if you can show that you already know how things work.”
Sascha Warner (presenter at Planet 105): “When I first caught interest in radio I’d wished there was a platform like Radio 4TNG with such a professional infrastructure. Me and some friends built a little radio studio in my parent’s cellar to get that radio feeling. For all the young people taking part at this project it’s a blessing: They get used to the whole technical aspect of radio making and also learn to get a voice of their own.”
During the special “Youth Radio Day” at this yeat’s IRF, presented by Radio 4TNG we will have a little glimpse into the world of young people’s love for radio. The next generation is taking over!
