He and the other winners will ‘receive top-level mentoring and advice on how to develop their ideas into viable programme propositions as well as the chance to shadow presenters and producers’, will be contributing regularly to Radio 3’s broadcasting schedule, in particular to their flagship ideas programme Night Waves.
