I wanted to be a content creator since I was in high school. I am going to discuss with you about the process of achieving my dream. Content creator is one of the most lucrative jobs in the world. I am fond of writing, and my goal is to become a writer who creates content. It was fortunate that I entered Chungbuk National University majoring in Korean Language and Literature, and I also worked there as a producer for their Chungbuk National University broadcasting station.
The campus broadcasting station sends out radio announcements from Monday to Friday during lunch and evening hours. Before I started working as a real producer, I made a radio broadcast for my seniors. It was a only test process. Someone would read and listen to my writing, so I was concerned about what kind of radio broadcast I should produce. I though about how to stimulate the interest of each person, and how to properly use radio as a broadcast media. Therefore, the first content I created was called “Jewel in the sand.” It was a music program that introduced a singer who was not yet well known to the public and hiding among other singers like jewel in the sand. I thought that the students would listen more attentively if they found out that there were good songs being played from the radio.
I received a lot of feedbacks on my first content, but I believe that it was an opportunity for me to grow as a producer. Since then, I have produced seven contents. In summary, there is a “Drama story” that introduces drama and drama OST in the form of a book based on information transfer. Furthermore, the music themed content was “Today’s player” that played music, dramas and movies based on the feeling of the students for the day. I can also recall a song participation broadcast called “No encore requests.”
The main topic that I have chosen is about radio contents before starting the semester. When the main topic was selected, I was tasked with writing a radio script with different materials each week. I was worried every day, and I used a lot of time. It took about 9 hours to write the first half hour of the radio program. However, my writing speed increased eventually, so I could write it in about 3 hours.
I finished my term at the broadcasting station of Chungbuk National University. I wanted my term to end every day, but I was more disappointed when it did ended. In two years, I have created seven contents and I experienced a lot of difficulties. Nevertheless, I wanted to learn more. It was a valuable experience to do the content creator’s work indirectly and make my dream into reality. I am going to keep writing my own stories and try to turn my ideas into content, which will be shown not only in our campus, but also in our society someday!
