USEFUL TIPS: Write the script like it’s going to be spoken aloud, not as if you're reading it: Keep it succinct: Whatever the type of radio that you make, it often makes sense to plan it out in advance to make sure you produce and present the best content possible. When you write a radio script, try to keep it as tight as possible. Don’t add unnecessarily flowery words or sentences that do not add to what you are trying to say.
