THE KELLAR RADIO TALENT INSTITUTE at APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY in BOONE, NC, marks its fourth year with several milestones. The INSTITUTE has received partial sponsorship from the NORTH CAROLINA ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS for the 2010 program, held JULY 12th-21st. This year also marks the first year that the INSTITUTE is accepting students from other colleges and universities. In prior years only APPALACHIAN STATE students were admitted.
"Now as we are about to hold our fourth RADIO INSTITUTE, it’s as apparent as it was the first year that there are many talented, intelligent and well-rounded young adults that aspire to be in radio,” said VALLIE-RICHARDS-DONOVAN CONSULTING Founder DAN VALLIE. "They come with enthusiasm, questions, ideas and a developing passion for the business. I’m thrilled the NCAB is sponsoring the Institute this year. These students/young broadcasters will benefit greatly. It’s just one more indication of how the successful professionals in our industry have an altruistic heart regarding helping young people get into the business, as well as their grasp of the vision of this talent farm system and seeing this as an investment in the future of our industry."
