I attended the academy not too long ago on the radio side. In my opinion, it is like anything else you ever do with your life, it is what you make of it. The staff is more than knowledgeable in the broadcasting business and the lecture speakers, lecture well and keep the class engaged. By the end of the course, you feel like you can work anywhere. The school will help you get your resume and air check demos done. There are times when things go wrong in life. Kids get sick, cars break down, and sometimes you just need a break because you’re getting burnt out. The staff at the academy will do everything they can to help you when you need it. They will work with you and they will be compassionate to your situation. I know this firsthand. The Academy was well worth my time and the tuition.
