The NATIONAL RADIO TALENT SYSTEM will end its SUMMER with the third annual KBA WKU RADIO TALENT INSTITUTE at WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY beginning TODAY (7/20). The fourth Institute of the SUMMER has 35 professional broadcasters teaching at the INSTITUTE, with RAB Pres./CEO ERICA FARBER joining a group of radio professionals from FORCHT BROADCASTING, iHEARTMEDIA, CAPCITY COMMUNICATIONS and COMMONWEALTH BROADCASTING in teaching the RAB RMP certification course. All Institute students will take the exam to become certified by the RAB as Radio Marketing Professionals.
Over the 10 days, college students, who had applied and were accepted into the Institute, will be taught on almost all aspects of radio, including on air, sports, news, production, promotions, digital and sales. There are no breakout sessions; all students are in every session. Students with a passion and desire for a career in broadcasting are accepted not only from WKU, but also from other schools in the state and region.
NATIONAL RADIO TALENT SYSTEM Founder/Pres. DAN VALLIE commented, “Thanks to WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY, THE KENTUCKY BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION and the radio groups for partnering with us to give these students the campus to career connection most need, and to be an incubator of young talent for our industry.”
