I agree with all of these postings. Actually, don't go to school for radio. How things are going, there won't be any jobs for you to start off in anyways. The street teams may be eliminated next...
: Don't waste your money. Get an intership at the local radio station. Offer to do anything. Ask questions. One day, you will get the tap on the shoulder to do something big (for you), like run the board for a remote.
: Seriously, go to school for something else. Earn a degree from a four-year college. Use "those skills" to intelligently interact and engage listeners. Did you know that most great talk show hosts structure their discussions in a thesis paper format? Introduction to topic > thesis statement > supporting and counter supporting views > phone calls. You'll learn that in a freshman English writing class.
: : Maybe I am lame for posting, but I am about to start Madison Media Institute soon for radio. I know I have a lot to learn but I am wondering what I can do to put myself ahead of the other people who will be in my class. What can I do to set myself apart and give me a better chance at breaking into radio and become successful at it? Any opinions and experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
