“I have been challenged and rewarded more than I ever imagined! I am excited to start my 20th year in radio.”Meet Illinois Media School (formally Illinois Center for Broadcasting) 2003 alum, Program Director/Midday Host at B103/103.FM, Rockford, IL, Lisa Tyler. Like many of our graduates, she has had a great journey along the way! Lisa will tell you she always dreamed of a career in radio. Growing up in a family who were big fans of Chicago talk radio, she spent countless hours learning from a very young age.

Immediately after graduation from Illinois Media School, Lisa was hired for a full time midday position at 95Q in Decatur, IL. While there, she met with the VP of Programming for then NextMedia, and shared her ultimate goal to be in morning radio. Because of that conversation, she was recommended for a morning co-host position at a sister country station in Kenosha, WI, and shortly after, she became the morning co-host at 95 Nextmedia (95 WIIL ROCK) where from 2005-2012 she was the Lisa in the Tom & Lisa Morning Show. Lisa feels this is where she grew as a broadcaster and also had the time of her life attending countless rock shows and traveling to multiple tropical locations!

After a short break in 2012, Lisa was offered the morning co-host job at WIIL Rock sister station 102.3 XLC in Waukegan and from 2013-2018, she was the Lisa in the Jimmy & Lisa Morning Show. Gaining strong leadership skills she could see there was now opportunity for another pivot.

In 2018 Lisa was approached by former Illinois Media School Instructor Mark Zander, who encouraged her to apply for a Brand Manager position with Mid-West Family of Companies in Rockford, and that is how she landed at B103 103.1FM. While a huge challenge, Lisa feels fortunate to work with an amazing team who has helped her every step of the way.

On her career development, “I remember the incredible hands-on experience at Illinois Media School. The teachers were so passionate. I learned you get out what you put in and to work with the tools you’re given. I owe so much of where I am today to Illinois Media School. You have to be willing to work your tail off, roll with the changes, and open to move. Radio continues to evolve. There’s influencing, blogging, video production, website maintenance, event planning…you name it!

“Don’t be afraid to ask for or go for what you want. That conversation I had with the VP of Programming back in 2003 changed the course of my life and put me on the right path. Always remember, real growth happens outside your comfort zone! Best of luck, you’ve got this!”

Illinois Media School is proud of our alumni and the legacy they continue to createt in the media industry. From entry-level through career progression, our graduates shine bright!

Meet Ohio Media School (formally Ohio Center for Broadcasting) 2006 Alumni, Mike Falkenstein (Faulky), a freelance professional, who has been working in the industry since 2007, spending the majority of his time covering sports for Fox Sports as an Audio Technician, Travel ENG Camera, and Camera Operator, as well as a variety of events both locally and across the USA.Mike began his career as a chef but always had a passion for broadcasting. He was working at a country club in North Carolina when he entered a radio contest to be on the air, and that is where his story begins. He eventually returned to Cleveland, and as one thing led to another, he enrolled at Ohio Media School. With great radio internships under his belt and a wide range of audio and video skills, former Career Services Director Gary James connected Mike to Lyon Video. This start led to his career covering games for the National Basketball Association (NBA), National Football League (NFL), Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, Pregame, Postgame TV, and the Republican National Committee. Additionally, early on in his career, Mike returned to campus as an Instructor Assistant, lending his skills and experience to Ohio Media School students.

Multitalented with a wide range of experience, Faulky encourages current students to take advantage of every opportunity, “Work hard and be willing to learn. In this industry, you don’t get fired; you just don’t get rehired. There are many open doors, so network and let others see you in action.”

With 16 years in the business, Faulky continues to be a part of most sporting events in northeast Ohio. A family guy who loves what he does, he is pleased that he decided to follow his dreams at Ohio Media School.

BeOnAir Career Services; Creating New Opportunities for Employment, Collaboration, and Internships.




Our Career Services Directors are constantly exploring new opportunities for our students and graduates, and video gaming is certainly a venue of great interest!Creating an additional pathway of entertainment and interaction, gaming also builds community, providing a virtual form of exchange and a medium of social media.

Ohio Media School Career Services Director Houda Crable took a peak inside this year’s Cleveland Gaming Classic, exploring the many ways our students and graduates can pursue their passion, both in internship and employment.

While attending, Houda was happy to catch up with former Ohio Media School Instructor representing Hyland, the very talented Jeffrey Ford and Employer partner at Rock The House, Director of Entertainment Cory Enriquez, who was DJing the event!

It is incredible to note that the Cleveland Gaming Classic started more than a decade ago, with eight friends playing a Tecmo Bowl Tournament in someone’s basement. It has grown into a weekend convention drawing gamers from at least ten states to the IX Center in Northeast Ohio.




There is always opportunity if you take the time to look around and put yourself out there. Houda said, “It was great to be part of the excitement! I loved seeing some familiar faces and networking with new people. Indie software companies were looking to grow their brand and established names by interviewing or engaging gamers and attendees.

“For the gamers, it was cool seeing the various free play opportunities: a wall of pinball machines, a room of arcade games, two meeting rooms of retro games, several rooms for various tournaments, and even games at vendor tables. An exciting category that intrigues many of our students and graduates, I will bring new contacts back to campus and will continue connecting our graduates to opportunity.”

Houda’s counterpart at our Columbus Campus, Lee. A Wagner, Regional Director of Career Services had a busy week connecting with media industry employers. Lee had great campus visits by Cameron Vines and Brittany Weinberg from Creativity Linked Studios (Left Top), Daniel Ross from Nerdy Dan Films (Left bottom) and Reggie Crews from Crews Brothers Advertising Group. We thank all of our amazing employers for their time and commitment to our graduates.
