Messages matter.

Broadcast Communication is such an exciting field, combining television and radio on-air performance with opportunities for on-screen acting, motivational speaking, talk show hosting, sportscasting, and more!

Think of the power in speaking to literally millions of people simultaneously. Imagine crafting the messages you'd like to communicate in creative new ways. Discover announcing, reporting news, sports and feature stories, interviewing fascinating people, reading from teleprompters, being yourself on-camera, and speaking out on important issues to audiences in the U.S. and around the world.

You'll gain confidence and poise to speak well on mic and on camera. You'll explore opportunities to record voice-over narration and character voices, to report on news and happenings around you, to draw out of people in an interview what they may never before have told anyone else. It's an amazing, challenging and rewarding field, just waiting for you to enter it!
