This issue we get the real JMC word from Alumni Emma Chow who com­pleted an Advanced Diploma in Enter­tain­ment Busi­ness Man­age­ment and who is now the cur­rent co-host and pro­ducer of the break­fast show on The Edge 96ONE.

Since grad­u­at­ing from JMC Acad­emy, what have you been up to in the indus­try? 
Cur­rently I’m the Co-Host and Pro­ducer of the break­fast show on The Edge 96ONE. I kinda just fell into radio after JMC Acad­emy, and then fell in love with it. Talk­ing has always been my strong point! My first job in the indus­try after grad­u­at­ing from JMC was Chart Man­ager at The Music Net­work. Part of my role involved inter­view­ing Pro­gram and Music Direc­tors over the phone and Char­lie Fox (my now boss) liked what he heard. He offered me a fill-in guest spot for a few weeks and it was fun, but noth­ing even­tu­ated. A year later I got a phone call with an offer to co-host and pro­duce The Edge break­fast show!
