Watch John's Facebook Live or download the slides from his presentation.
Join Technorama's John Maizels LIVE on our Facebook page on Thursdaysday the 12th of April, 1pm AEDT. This will be your chance to ask him about all things when it comes to technology and broadcasting!
John started his radio career as a teenager, learning to build consoles and studios, developing announcing skills and running radio stations at school. He entered the Broadcast Industry as a tech at 3XY in 1970, moving to 3CS as an announcer in 1972, then back to Melbourne to study at RMIT – which turned into Chief Technical Officer at 3ST, Australia’s first landline station. Since then he has worked professionally in radio and television in a variety of creative, production and engineering roles.
He co-founded and built 3MU at Monash Uni, was first on-air presenter at 3CR, and in 1976 became founding Chair of 3PBS-FM, helping to create both policy and the first on-air studios.
To say John has a wide range of knowledge when it comes to technology would be an understatement. He is your go-to person for any technology related questions when it comes to broadcasting and community radio. This is why we have invited John to share his knowledge with you LIVE.
Catch John Maizels on the 12th of April at 1pm AEST on the CMTO Facebook page raising some frequently asked questions that technologists get, going through the basic rundown of a studio and offering some tips on how to foster technologists at your station. You will be able to ask him questions via the comments section on the video in real time.
