City Media Academy

City Media Academy was set up by Adedoja Allen because of the influx of interns seeking to become celebrity media personalities. The academy is a vocational training and capacity development program that trains youths interested in broadcasting. The City Media Academy offers a wide range of courses for aspiring students. The training would also enable students to spend three weeks in class and one week on the radio (on air).

The initiative is an opportunity to give back to society. I would love to get involved in training young people to become radio personalities and on-air presenters. I said a step to take was to set up a City FM Academy and gladly we are the number one radio station that would come out with this kind of initiative. The way we structured it was such that the students will come into the classroom and get theoretical training across all the subjects and courses ranging from presenting, marketing, social media, production, voice training, and so on.
