Producers of radio documentary programs for prefectural radio stations perform a multitude of tasks by themselves. As a result, these producers seem to acquire a more wide-ranging aptitude than producers of longform, live-broadcast programs, which are produced using the division of labor.
In this study, producers were interviewed about the techniques they use and acquired in producing programs, along with methods for learning them. The analysis was done using M-GTA (Modified Grounded Theory approach).
From the survey and analysis,13 skills that were used and developed were found, along with the utilization of an experiential learning model. These producers are not aware of the listeners’ reactions to the program and cannot gauge the circumstances from the environment. However, they overcome these difficulties on their own and weave their own theories based on what they imagine the reactions and opinions of the listeners to be. In this way, they have acquired a higher level of ability, where they can garner an overview of a program as a whole.
