A BARNSLEY College student has bagged a slot on Penistone FM broadcasting his own sports show.

Music student Richard Buckley, 16, is now a full volunteer at the station after undertaking six months of training.

He reports on live results on a Saturday afternoon for teams such as Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Rotherham United and local clubs including Penistone Church FC and Stocksbridge Park Steels.

He said: "It's great experience for me to use the studios at college as it's helping me with my voluntary work at the station and should help me to secure a career in the radio industry in the future.

"It's brilliant that the people of Barnsley have such an outstanding college and outstanding facilities on their doorstep."
