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.

You need exposures. RJ hunts on talent search are often conducted by FM Channels to bring out original unique talent.

Only few Institutes offer specialized courses and most of them have been started by well known anchors.
