Kidz Talk radio launches in Campbell River

A new radio station for students is coming to Campbell River

A new radio station for students is coming to Campbell River.

“Kidz Talk Radio, a program representing a new approach to literacy for all ages, is tentatively set to launch October 19 in Campbell River,” says Diana Camerin, one of a few local individuals working to put together this progressive and fun approach to literacy education. “Being literate refers to the ability to read for knowledge, write coherently, communicate effectively and think critically. What I love about Kidz Talk Radio is that it brings all of these elements into a classroom, after school or workshop experience that is educational, interactive and uses youth’s natural love of technology as the vehicle to deliver the message.”

The program is delivered by trained facilitators and brings all the technology needed to complete the program.

Local radio personalities have provided the expertise around such topics as clear vocal communication skills, creative writing, the need for news and sports stories and responsible and effective on-air announcing.

“At the end of the day kidz will have written and voiced an advertisement for a product they actually tasted or researched, given voice to local topics that are important to them and learned the vital elements of good communication,” Camerin says. Anyone interested in Kidz Talk Radio or would like more information can contact Camerin at kidztalkradio@gmail.com or 250-205-1078
