With the advent of the FM radio everyone seems to be hooked on to the radio. It seems as though television and the internet have taken a backseat when compared to the radio. Therein you have the exciting, different, new age career of a radio jockey. The role of a radio jockey is to anchor the radio show and keep the listeners interest levels up so that they log on to the show consistently.

Radio Mirchi: Bajate Raho

Eligibility to Become a Radio Jockey(RJ): Anyone who has an ear for music and knows about music in an out is eligible to apply for the job of a radio jockey. A radio jockey must also have a way with words. S/he must be able to convey messages in a simple yet endearing manner. They must have a witty sense of humor and be alert throughout the show. They must also be energetic and brimming with new ideas to keep the audience from switching off the radio.

Education Qualification for a RJ: There are no particular educational qualifications as such for a radio jockey. However, most of them are graduates. The person must be familiar with the language, music and be able to respond spontaneously and creatively to the audience. The way they put forward the ideas in their speech matters a lot.

Degrees to become a RJ: No particular degree is required; however, there are training institutes that train one in the nuances of being a radio jockey. Most of the radio jockeys just pick up the requisite skills on the job or by budding up with an ace radio jockey.

Job Prospects For a Radio Jockey(RJ): The job prospects for a radio jockey entirely depend on the person’s expertise. It is not a regular mundane job as it includes several factors such as selecting the right kind of music, script writing the show and the final presentation. If the person is able to gauge the nerve of the audience and clicks with them then the sky is the limit. The listeners are the ultimate judges and they will decide on your career growth in this field. The radio jockey needs to be a multi-faceted person. S/he must be good with equipment such as computers, mikes; they must also have a good voice which can be modulated.

A radio jockey can audition for the job. AIR holds auditions almost every 3 months. There are several other radio stations such as Times, FM, Midday and other smaller independent radio stations. As the radio jockey gains experience he becomes more in demand as the audience start recognizing him. Radio jockeys can also do voiceovers in their spare time. They can also turn to compeering shows and events.

Salaries of RJ in India: The remuneration that a radio jockey can fetch for themselves is quite competitive. An experienced radio jockey for his first ever stint at radio jockeying can get between Rs. 7000 to 15,000 per month. There are companies that might also pay as high as Rs 14,000 to 25,000 per show. There are well-known radio jockeys who are earning more than about 75,000 per month. Radio broadcasting on the internet pays slightly better.
