Hi,

Radio Jokey is a talent based field. Even though no formal educational qualification is required, a degree or at least plus two is generally a prerequisite.

This is a very interesting and creative field. A lot of hard work is required in this field.The most essential factors for a Radio Jockey are-

- Good voice with the ability to modulate as per the occasion.
-Clear diction, accurate pronunciation, flare and fluency in the language.
- Should be able to control the pitches of their voice and learn to use them to the best effect.
- Speed of response to the audience should be good.
- Good sense of humor is required.
- Individuality should be maintained
- Creativity of mind
- Spontaneity
- An intensive knowledge of music is a must.
- Ability to twist and turn their speech according to the situation
- Staying updated is very important.
- Needs to keep track of the happenings in and around the city
- People enjoy if they can sound different on the show.
- Qualities like mimicry, local dialects and comedy or humor items will help to carry on their show.
- Should be diplomatic in character as they have to interact with people of different nature.
- They must maintain a down-to-earth and approachable attitude so that listeners can comfortably make calls and speak their hearts out.
