Iowa Central’s Radio Broadcasting Program provides thorough, hands-on training and experience for a career in the radio industry. From writing to announcing, sales to sports, digital audio production to programming, we’ll teach you the skills you need in order to succeed in this highly competitive field.

Iowa Central’s Broadcasting Program offers an intense and practical blend of classroom studies and hands-on experience. The two-year program includes a summer internship session. During the eight-week summer internship, students work at a professional radio station, gaining valuable experience and networking with industry professionals. During their time at Iowa Central, students may also take advantage of part-time opportunities at one of eight professional radio stations in Fort Dodge and the surrounding area. Upon completion of the program graduates receive an Associate in Applied Science Degree.

Graduates of our program learn how to prepare effective resumes and audition tapes. They gain valuable “real life” interviewing experience. And they can take advantage of our job placement service. Course credits are also transferable to four-year institutions for students wishing to continue their education at the university level.
