New technology has changed the radio industry in the country.
With World Radio day being celebrated today, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation’s Manager Radio Programs Shammi Lochan says radio transformation has seen the use of small transistor radio and using cd’s and cassettes to play songs to now playing music with just a click of a button.
Lochan says good changes have been recorded.
“Long play records, we would use a styler and other gears and equipment. We used to play a lot of recordings from spool machines. It was all very manual. Commercials were recorded and caged in an equipment called cartridge machines. So we used to play commercials from here but now everything has been digitalized.”
Program director for Radio Fiji One Nai Kamanalagi says her journey for the past 30 years has been a dream come true.
“What keeps me going on the radio is my passion of being a radio presenter and secondly it’s my audience and even FBC as a whole and my station Radio Fiji One. I love being a presenter and I love being recognized, it’s a household name.”
This year’s theme for the celebration is dialogue, tolerance, and peace.
