Computer-Based Radio Broadcasting Program Information

The entire course is 34 weeks (8 1/2 months) for a total of 1032 hours from start to finish.

Every week, beginning in Week 1, you will be creating and broadcasting an actual radio show. It will be critiqued by a professional instructor, and you will get immediate feedback at the completion of each show. The instructor will tell you what you did right, what you did wrong, and what to work on for your next show.

In addition, you will receive personalized Vocal Coaching every week to maximize the quality of your voice, thus increasing your marketability whether you plan on pursuing a path in traditional AM/FM radio, doing commercial voiceover work, or broadcasting from your own home computer to thousands of potential listeners on the Internet.

In Week 5, you will begin learning how to actually create Digital Production using the premiere audio manipulation software, Adobe Audition CS6! Everything you create is then critiqued and graded by one of our instructors so that you get better with each assignment.

Beginning in Week 6, you will watch video lectures from a real radio professional, and ABS instructor, covering topics from Digital Production to Radio Sales.

Every week we teach you a little more so that you gradually get better at the skills you will need to succeed in the broadcasting business.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are knowledgeable in every facet of the broadcast industry and possess the skills and broadcast software necessary to pursue exciting self-employment opportunities in the areas of internet radio, voice over talent for advertising agencies, digital production services, mobile music entrepreneurship, copywriting, and much more as well as being qualified for entry-level positions at traditional radio stations or in broadcast-related fields as on-air personalities, newscasters, sportscasters, commercial production talent, promotions assistants, account executives, and producers.
