Students will learn to operate a console board and work on skills in speaking, articulation, productions, script writing, and interviewing.  They will apply their journalistic skills to access, analyze, evaluate, and produce communication in a variety of forms as they learn the ethical considerations and laws that affect broadcast journalism.  The program is great for students who are interested in radio or broadcast journalism, communications, advertising, radio/tv/film, broadcasting, journalism, public relations, media, improving communication skills and boosting confidence.  You do not need to be pursuing radio as a career for this class to be beneficial.

Operating the broadcast console and the other studio equipment may seem challenging at first, but we provide you with all the educational and mentorship you require.  You operate everything yourself, and cue your media.  It takes a little training and some preparation – no advanced technical skill is necessary.  After a few shows, you’ll feel right at home. 

You will use various media sources (mp3 files, CDs, FTP download, flash cards, etc.) to broadcast our range of educational and informational programming….and of course the music!

KEOM is a cooperative operation with student staff.  Participation in performing all staff duties and assisting with events and other initiatives is required.
