Janice has been involved in Christian radio since 1991, and has worked with Reach Beyond since 2004. She joined the mission fulltime in 2006. Since then, she has provided training for hundreds of radio announcers who work with our partner stations in Indonesia and Thailand, and has conducted occasional workshops in other countries as well.
Based in South-East Asia, Janice provides training on a range of topics. Most in demand are her short courses for new radio announcers—providing core skills in understanding how communication works, learning studio procedures, and designing programmes that meet the needs and tastes of listeners in communities where Christianity is a minority religion and often misunderstood.
Intermediate-level training helps existing announcers to gain skill and confidence, helping them to think and act strategically as they develop their programmes and create an ever-more-relevant and interesting range of output for local communities.
