From ELT News Editor to Radio DJ

Former ELT News editor Kevin Ryan, now an assistant professor at Showa Women's University in Tokyo's Setagaya Ward, has launched a radio show with a group of students. The 15-minute-program is called "What's Up, Setagaya!" and is presented by Ryan and 16 students from his English language and communication department. It is broadcast on the FM Setagaya station and airs from 8:55am on Sundays. Featuring local news, information and interviews, the pre-recorded show is broadcast mostly in English and is aimed at foreign residents living in the area and Japanese people interested in learning English. The first broadcast was on April 3 and featured an interview with an American student living with a local family and a short mystery drama set in the ward office.
