Model Answer: 
After seeing the widespread use of television, I thought that radio was going to be extinct sooner rather than later. But, with the introduction of FM radio as well as some interesting programmes, aired by them, it looks like radio is trying to make a comeback. However, today, I would like to talk about one such programme, which I find really interesting.

It is a program on “improving communication skills” for young job seekers. I have been listening to this program for about a year, which is aired at around 7:00 pm on Saturday every week. The programme, consisting of 3 different segments, runs for about an hour.

In the first segment of the program, a group of successful professionals from different job sectors joins the host of this programme where the professionals try to answer different kinds of “communication” related questions in light of their professional experience. Sometimes, participating professionals also try to explain different communication protocols for different industries. In the second segment of the programme, the audience of the programme gets to ask the guest professionals an array of professional communication-related questions which are then answered as clearly as possible, one after another, by the participants. In the third and final part of the program, which I really like the most, a mock-up conversation takes place in a professional set up among different professional individuals in order to highlight the errors in communication as well as correcting them in real-time. At the end of the program, the host leaves the programme after asking some quizzes to the followers of this programme in order for them to be answered via mail or email in the following week.

Anyway, I think, this particular radio programme is really interesting because it has managed to show how effective communication can change our professional life and experience. Besides, I find it interesting also because, among many other things, this programme also teaches us that majority of our world’s problems would have just vanished instantly if we had known how to communicate with each other properly.
