The aim of the challenge was to take five young people from “ordinary” reading skills to broadcast quality skills.

“Digicel and the management of WEFM – together want to believe that they have ignited a spark in the participants,” a release said.

Marketing executive Danielle Cupid stated, “Digicel is pleased to have been a part of such a great initiative; developing the youth of St Vincent and the Grenadines is something taken very seriously.”

The participants enjoyed a week long training session on several skills and aspects of reading, such as diction, confidence and pronunciation. When the participants were asked about their experience they stated that it was a really great opportunity and some even discovered a calling to a possible career in media.
