So You Want to Work in Broadcasting?

Our 9 month program in Radio & Television Broadcasting will teach you what it’s like to work in a real studio on a daily basis, as well as train you in the “behind the scenes” which includes technical operations. We give you the tools and the skills to succeed in today’s broadcasting industry:

  • On-camera – From wardrobe and makeup, to how to stand and deliver content. Our program gives an overview of the techniques needed for successful on-camera delivery.
  • Microphone – Whether it’s radio or television, proper mic technique is key. How you hold a microphone not only helps eliminate background noise, it assists you in disguising any verbal imperfections.
  • Web content -Each student creates and maintains their own website which also serves as a digital portfolio to house all their work created while attending the program.
  • Promotions – What is the formula for creating a successful radio or television promotion? How does a successful promotion increase a station’s listenership and viewership? Students learn how to think outside the box to come up creative ideas in a team atmosphere. Radio and Television Promotions can absolutely make or break an advertising campaign for a client.
  • Sales – Radio and Television Sales can be an exciting and monetarily rewarding career. Depending on the size of the market, many broadcasting professionals work in both a sales capacity and as an on-air talent. Understanding the key role of sales is critical to how sales, marketing, and promotions all work with programming to execute successful advertising campaigns for clients.
  • Polish – Each student works one-on-one with a career services specialist from the time they begin the program and beyond graduation, to ensure they’ve created a solid resume, a flawless demo, and developed the interview skills needed to land their first industry job.

We’ll give you the tools you need, without all the fluff you don’t.
