05 seu sokhim small

Seu Sokhim, 25, works as a radio presenter at a radio station. In addition to having a nice-sounding voice and good communication skills, radio presenting requires choosing good content and producing short stories and features.

Sokhim said that speaking and communication is easy for her, but that content selection and production is difficult.

“When I need to produce a feature story and broadcast the program, I face some challenge’s when I structure the story,” she said.

Sokhim said that she has not received extensive training in news production for radio broadcast, but that she has joined several workshops to learn about reporting and news structure.

Furthermore, Sokhim said that she has trouble asking questions for radio broadcasts.

“I take a lot of time just designing questions in order to get good answers. Sometimes, when I asks questions to interviewees, I get the feeling that they aren’t catching the meaning of what I’m asking, and the answers they provide are not what I want.”

However, Sokhim said that she still enjoys working in radio broadcast as she tries to improve her news/feature writing, as well as her ability to provide informative and essential news to the audience. However, she still has several questions that she would like answered.

“I want to know, how can we produce a news or feature for radio broadcasting in the right structure that can contain all the information in a way that is easy for the audience to understand?” she asked.

“If I want to do a radio feature, what are the important things that I should do?”
