According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of radio and television announcers is expected to grow by 7 percent between 2010 and 2020, and "those with a formal education in journalism, broadcasting, or mass communications and with hands-on work experience at a radio or television network will have the best job prospects."*
In the dynamic and competitive world of radio, professional training and real-world experience — from working with digital audio equipment in the studio to participating in the daily business operations of a media outlet — are what can set you apart as an up-and-coming professional. As the need for on-demand news and up-to-the-minute information grows, broadcasters who are skilled in both traditional and digital media will have the competitive advantage.
