Calling All Aspiring Broadcasters, Podcasters, and Storytellers!

The Drayton Entertainment Youth Academy invites you to a very special workshop with Mike Farwell, daily talk show host on CityNews 570 and play-by-play voice of the Kitchener Rangers. This exclusive Q&A and hands-on Radio Broadcasting Workshop is presented as part of Mike’s Farwell4Hire fundraising campaign. Since 2014, Farwell4Hire has raised more than $1-million for research to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. 

This is a FREE workshop, but cash donations to the Farwell4Hire Campaign for cystic fibrosis will be gratefully accepted on the day.
