Presentation Director

What does a Presentation Director do?

A Presentation Director is basically a radio DJ, but without the talking. They play the ads, programmes... everything. A Presentation Director has to catch everyone else's mistakes before they go to air. It's a 'live on-air' control room where anything can happen and it's their job to keep things running smoothly.

What I like about being a Presentation Director -

"The title sounds flash! You are basically getting paid to watch TV, of course there's a lot more to it than that! Even though the job involves shift work there is a lot of flexibility." Carrie Wills, Presentation Director

What qualifications do I need to become a Presentation Director?

To be a successful Presentation Director, you need a great attitude, sound editorial judgement, technical aptitude, computer literacy and a passion for television.
