The Broadcast Leadership Training Program aims to teach executives who want to advance skills relevant to purchasing, and operating radio and television stations and group management. Several companies fund the program, including: Apex Media, Belo Corp., Cumulus Media Inc., Hearst-Argyle Television, Inc., Journal Broadcast Group, LIN Television Corporation, National Association of Broadcasters, Morgan Murphy Stations, NewCity Foundation, and Susquehanna Radio Corp.
FCC staff and leading communications attorneys will discuss regulatory and legal issues; members of the Wall Street and banking community will provide insight into financing arrangements; and leading broadcast executives will offer their first-hand perspective on the industry. In some instances, academic faculty from leading universities will be on hand to share their expertise.
This unique combination of professionals acting as instructors will not only impart a real-world perspective to the program, it will also allow participants to build a network of contacts.
The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation develops and supports educational programs and outreach initiatives designed to provide information on topical issues, increase diversity, highlight community service and promote philanthropy.
