The American Broadcasting School is rolling into its 45th year of service. Started in 1970 by Del Cockrell in Oklahoma City, Okla., the school trains students for most facets of radio operations, focusing on but not limited to on-air work.
The school now has a second campus, in the Dallas-area suburb of Arlington, Texas. The Arlington operation sponsored a Marine vet team for a local softball tournament over last weekend. Proceeds went to the Wounded Warrior Project.
In addition, the Arlington branch school will have a parade entry in Fort Worth’s Veterans Day parade. Several current students and alumni are veterans.
The school is also planning a series of visits from alums who have made successful careers in radio.
