Expanding Opportunities: Radio Talent Institutes Continue to Shape the Future of Broadcasting

The National Radio Talent System (NRTS), a division of RAB, is gearing up for another exciting year of its renowned Radio Talent Institutes. In a bid to cultivate and nurture promising talent, the NRTS has announced plans to hold not one, but five in-person institutes across various college campuses in the late spring and early summer of 2024.

Recognizing the need for hands-on experience and immersive learning, the NRTS Founder Dan Vallie developed this unique program to provide students with a wide range of career disciplines within the radio industry. Through these institutes, students will have the opportunity to delve into on-air delivery, sports, news, promotions, production, podcasting, engineering, digital, and sales, all while completing the Radio Marketing Professional certification course offered by the RAB.

Building on the success of the previous year, where three institutes were successfully held at Appalachian State University, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, and Grady College at the University of Georgia, the NRTS is excited to expand its reach and host five institutes in 2024.

“We are thrilled to continue the tradition of the Radio Talent Institutes,” says Erica Farber, President & CEO of RAB. “The radio industry is constantly evolving, and it is crucial that we equip the next generation with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed. These institutes provide students with an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the best in the business, network with industry professionals, and kick-start their careers.”
