    I agree with Sarah that it’s been really exciting listening to all the radio shows from our YJA Newsrooms across the county today.

    All the shows were very different, had great features and presented by some wonderful young journalists.

    There’s more new shows to come this week and repeats of the ones you’ve already heard.

    The bar has been raised very high with the first YJA Radio programmes and I’m looking forward to future shows.
