Radio Broadcasting

 

 

The Radio Broadcasting program prepares individuals for careers in different industry related areas, such as sales, announcing, production, engineering, and news writing. Program completers are qualified by virtue of having the knowledge, skills, and personal characteristics to carry out various functions in professional broadcast settings.


At Western Texas College’s own FCC licensed FM radio station, 91.1 FM KGWB, Radio Broadcasting students have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment, produce announcements and programs, prepare news and sportscasts, broadcast WTC sporting events to local and worldwide audiences, and learn the inner workings of a radio station.  Further, students will become station staff members gaining valuable on-the-job experience, assume the same responsibilities as in a commercial broadcast operation, and compile a professional portfolio through a 16-week internship at a commercial radio station as part of the program.
