Beasley Radio Talent Institute to Launch in 2018
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, August 28, 2017|
Beasley Media Group, in conjunction with Xperi and Marketron Interactive, have partnered with the National Radio Talent System to unveil the Beasley Radio Talent Institute. The ten-day program will officially debut in the summer of 2018 at Emerson College in Boston, MA. The Institute is designed as a talent incubator and farm system for aspiring broadcasters. The immersion program brings broadcasting students together with over 30 radio pros who teach classes based on their individual areas of expertise.
Session topics will range from on-air, production, news, sports, interactive to social media, engineering, promotions and sales, with the Radio Advertising Bureau's "Radio Marketing Professional" certification course.
Students from across the state and region are encouraged to apply for acceptance into the Beasley Radio Talent Institute. The application process will begin this coming fall. Broadcasters are encouraged to urge interns at their stations to apply for the program.
"As a company, we are absolutely committed to supporting and encouraging the development of new talent in our company and our industry," said Beasley Media Group CEO Caroline Beasley. "The Beasley Radio Talent Institute further underscores this commitment and provides an incredible incubator for developing tomorrow's leaders today. We look forward to members of our incredible teams at ALT 92.9, HOT 96.9, WKLB-FM, WROR-FM and WMJX-FM all being involved in this important initiative."
"The Radio Talent Institute builds upon the quality education students are already receiving at their academic institutions and through working at their college radio stations," said WERS-FM General Manager Jack Casey, who is also an Adjunct Professor at Emerson College. "We are grateful to Beasley Media Group for providing this incredible opportunity, along with other forward-thinking companies such as xPeri and Marketron Interactive."
"We are thrilled to bring the Beasley Radio Talent Institute to Boston," said Dan Vallie, Founder and President of the National Radio Talent System. "From the beginning, Beasley Media Group CEO Caroline Beasley grasped the vision we had for the program and immediately stepped up. They are a company that does the right thing in our industry."
The National Radio Talent System will be reaching out to broadcasting professionals in Boston and across the State of Massachusetts to teach sessions at the Institute.
