Readers take the scripts prepared by the editors and record them on to the news sticks, under the guidance of the recording engineer. There are five half-hour scripts to be recorded each Friday.
We have two reader sessions each Friday. The first is from 10.30am until 12.30pm and the second from 7.30pm until 9.30 pm.
All prospective readers are given a reading test before acceptance. We often have a waiting list for readers and give preference to volunteers already working with us doing other jobs. We currently have a full schedule and several reserve readers.
