NAB Accepting Applications for 2021 Leadership Training Program


The NAB Leadership Foundation is accepting applications now through August 19 for the 2021 Broadcast Leadership Training (BLT) program. The BLT program is the foremost executive training program for the broadcast industry and is designed to prepare senior-level broadcasters to advance into ownership or executive positions. Women and people of color are especially encouraged to apply.

Moving into its 21st year, the executive MBA-style program teaches the fundamentals of purchasing, owning and operating radio and television stations to senior-level broadcast professionals, particularly women and people of color, who aspire to advance as group executives or station owners.

Typically comprising in-person weekend sessions, the 2021 Broadcast Leadership Training program will adopt a hybrid model to ensure the health and safety of students, educators and participants. All education sessions planned through the end of 2020 will be held online, with the starting session to be held September 24 - 25.

"As we transition to a hybrid online and in-person model, we look forward to expanding the reach of the Broadcast Leadership Training program," said Diane Sutter, BLT program founder and dean; and founder, president and CEO of ShootingStar Broadcasting. "Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we cultivate the next class of diverse industry leaders and equip them with the knowledge and training to advance their careers."

Session dates through December 2020 are available on nabfoundation.org. The complete schedule will be made available in early October.

Broadcast professionals from all areas of the industry, including general managers, experienced sales managers and seasoned department heads, as well as regional and corporate executives, are encouraged to apply. Fellowship opportunities are available for women and people of color. Additional information can be found HERE.
