The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association is rolling up its sleeves and getting its hands dirty this summer in the search for the next generation of broadcast engineers.
Along with the annual WBA Summer Conference, June 18–21, the WBA has developed an engineering track for the conference. And it won’t be an ordinary track but will devote significant time to recruiting and introducing prospective engineers to the business.
The track will consist of four days of activity, two heavily aimed at the youngsters while a day will be devoted to more traditional broadcast engineering technical sessions and another day will look at IT and regulations, safety and security. Much of the curriculum was developed by Terry Baun and will be introduced at the WBA’s Student Seminar, on Saturday.
