The third annual Hubbard Radio Talent Institute starts Monday on the campus of Central Washington University with Hubbard Radio Chair/CEO Ginny Morris taking the opening session. Students accepted into the Institute are immersed in all things radio with sessions including on-air, production, promotions, digital/social media, engineering, news, sports and sales, with each student being certified as a Radio Marketing Professional by RAB. On Friday, the students will be the live studio audience for KRWN-FM (WARM 106.9)/Seattle morning show with Allan and Ashley, broadcasting live on campus at the Institute.

Morris commented, "Compelling and relatable on-air talent is what separates local radio from all other audio entertainment services. Our investment in the National Radio Talent System at Central Washington University is an extension of Hubbard Radio's commitment to do our part to nurture and grow the talent pipeline for the industry. We are proud to partner with Dan Vallie and his team in this important initiative."

Hubbard Radio President Drew Horowitz Marc Kaye and over 35 other radio pros from Hubbard, Entercom, Bonneville, Townsquare, Alpha Media, the Seattle Seahawks and others will lead sessions during the ten-day Institute. Three former students of the Institute return this year as radio professionals leading a session, Tanner Chambers with syndicated "Fitz in the Morning" show, Dylan Hubber with Hubbard Seattle and Jackson Sager, Associate Producer of the "Lars Larsen Show" in Portland.

Founder and President of the National Radio Talent System Dan Vallie stated, "As critical as embracing technology is to our industry, eventually everyone has access to the same technology... what makes the difference - always has and always will be - is people. These young talent are our future. We are proud to be working together with Hubbard Radio in growing the farm system; discovering, coaching and incubating young talent with a passion for radio."

To date, the majority of students completing an Institute begin their career in radio or a related field, and have gone on to work for Hubbard Radio, Beasley Media Group, Alpha Media, Entercom, iHeartMedia, Cumulus, Forever Media, Seven Mountains, CNN, Commonwealth Broadcasting and the NBA, among others.

The Hubbard Radio Talent Institute at Central Washington is the sixth Institute of the summer and will be followed by the KBA WKU Radio Talent Institute in Kentucky and the MBA Radio Talent Institute at Northwest Missouri State.
