Careers in Broadcast Communications

Program Time 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

The field of communications is a vibrant area that involves learning how to easily communicate with others. If you have a degree in communications, you potentially could get into several different areas of work. Communications jobs can be rewarding because you can help companies work together and solve their problems. Radio broadcasting is one of the largest sectors of the media industry. There are many different jobs available in radio, and the competition in the industry is fierce. Radio host Bill Wills is the ring-master for Newsradio WTAM 1100’s morning show. He came to WTAM in August of 1998 after 13 years at 700 WLW radio in Cincinnati. The fast paced morning show has news updates every 15 minutes, traffic and weather together on the tens, and sports updates every 20 minutes.

Bill interviews the newsmakers of the day, and entertains and informs you with magazine style features about cyberspace, health, parenting, celebrities, the latest movies, and some of the biggest names in Cleveland Sports.

Join us at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 7th when Bill interacts with your students about his background, education, training and skills needed to succeed in this fierce industry.
