Kellar Radio Talent Institute Begins Third Year


The Kellar Radio Talent Institute, on the campus of Appalachian State University, began its third year on Monday providing the industry with talented young broadcasters. Formerly the Kellar Radio Farm System Institute, the institute has adjusted its name to attract, train and coach students who have a passion for the broadcast industry, as well as possible ownership.

Despite the current rocky business climate, graduates continue to be hired by top broadcasting companies including CBS Radio, Cumulus, Clear Channel, Entercom, Beasley and others. These companies hire Kellar Radio Talent Institute graduates because of their talent and the depth of knowledge and experience the students receive during the 10-day program and on top of their education at Appalachian.

Fifteen students have been accepted into this year's Institute which is being held July 13-22 on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. They will hear from 24 of the nation's top broadcasting professionals, including Don Curtis of Curtis Media and George Beasley of Beasley Broadcast Group. In addition to their sessions on the Appalachian campus, the students will travel to Charlotte on July 16 to hear from Performance Racing Network GM Doug Rice and Carolina Panthers play-by-play announcer Mick Mixon.

Also highlighting the Institute are live broadcasts by the "Murphy in the Morning Show" from WKZL-FM/Greensboro on Friday, July 17, and by News/Talk WSJS-AM/Greensboro Program Director/News Director Brian Freeman on Monday, July 20.

The director of the institute is consultant Dan Vallie of Vallie Richards Donovan Consulting.
