What they're saying
Recent Macquarie University media graduate Jake Morcom recently collected a prestigious global radio award for producing some the world’s best work in radio broadcasting at the 2017 New York Radio Festival Awards. Jake works at Sydney radio station 2SER, which is jointly owned by Macquarie University. He was a producer for programs which won Gold and Silver awards in the category of Information and Documentary, ahead of tough competition.
“It’s such an honour to be nominated at such a young age, and it was through Macquarie University that I found an interest in radio.”
Macquarie has some of the best radio facilities of any Australian university. Facilities include an on-air studio with digital panel, an on-air production control room and production booth; a digital outside broadcast facility to allow for location broadcasts; and the 2SER studios. Radio is becoming increasingly multi-platform and so the facilities tie closely to the Futures Lab and MediaCentral platforms for integration across broadcast and online contexts.
