Announcer: Let’s take it down for a second here. We both know I’m an ad, so let’s get that right out of the way. Do you wanna know what the best part of me is though? It’s that I could be you. Well, not you, exactly. But I was written by a student. And I’m being read by a student. And I was produced by a student. I’m even airing on a station run by students. Look how good I turned out, being created by people just like you! I should know how good they are, I trusted them with my life and I turned out okay. Full disclosure though, you will have to do yoga. Apply online at BCIT.ca for the fall semester of Radio Arts and Entertainment.
