College Students Training for Careers in Radio Production
The National Radio Talent System, the only program of its kind in the world, was created by veteran broadcaster Dan Vallie to provide a radio talent farm for the industry; an incubator of well-rounded, well-educated college talent with a passion for radio and a determination to get into the business. The innovative program delivers entry-level talent qualified to excel in radio stations and broadcast groups across America.
The National Radio Talent Institute attracts, trains and creates opportunity for talented, enthusiastic and well-educated young adults who have a passion for the broadcast industry.

All students also participate in RAB training and take the exam to earn their Radio Marketing Professional Certification.

We are proud to support the National Radio Talent System, an innovative program dedicated to attracting and training the brightest new talent for stations across the country.
