Jacobs Media Honors Dan Vallie As 'Most Innovative'
January 9, 2015 at 4:19 AM (PT)
Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business. This week, they've chosen DAN VALLIE. JACOBS writes, "maybe you’ve said it or heard it before, but it seems like everyone involved with hiring personnel for radio stations has shared this feeling. And then there’s that sense that young people aren’t interested in careers in radio.
"Well, myth or fact, it seems that until recently, almost no one has tried to do anything about it.
"That is until DAN VALLIE, who many of you know as the guy behind VALLIE•RICHARDS•DONOVAN. So as we start a new year, it seemed appropriate to honor Dan and his commitment to the future of radio in our 'Radio’s Most Innovative' series.
"VALLIE’s organization conducts educational programs called 'National Radio Talent Institutes' at affiliate universities across the country, designed to teach young people the craft of radio. Each institute is an intense 10-day program where groups of 25 students attend classes taught by radio professionals. Potential attendees go through an application process designed to identify students that are serious about a broadcasting career."
