This is mostly to recent graduates of Greenville Tech, or people still enrolled. Im looking for information on a Radio Broadcast course i hear they have their but i cant find any info on their website. Radio Broadcast is my career choice and feel it would be better getting a degree for it to better prepare myself. Anyone got anything for me?

I looked on the Greenville Tech site too and didn't see anything. I once held a broadcasters license in Chicago and Columbia College is the best school of the trade. I would suggest that you try looking for something that you might be able to take online if GTech doesn't have anything. Have you taken any of the licensing exams?

Can you move to Chicago?

Havent taken any yet...do you have to take them before you enter college for it? And i highly doubt i can move to chicago, im sure the price of living out there is nearly twice what it is hereand im not planning on working much while in college. Small part time job

I would imagine that classes would prepare you for the exams and maybe even administer them. As I remember (35-years ago) there were 3 levels of exams and each gave you more responsibility at the station. As I recall a Class III (which I had) virtually gave no responsibility at all...you could be on the air but someone had to be onsite that had a higher license. Maybe that's all changed in the years.

Did you take broadcasting in high school? That is where I decided broadcasting wasn't in my future. Do you want to be "on air" or behind the scenes? Do you know what your voice sounds like over the airwaves? The voice is what did me in!

Do you have a favorite dj in the area? Maybe you can call and ask their advice; maybe send an email to inquire? Most dj's are very friendly and I can't imagine they wouldn't respond.

Id like to have my own show, where im on air and choose the songs to play. For a few reasons, mostly cause i wanna get all the crap off the radio, and 2 cause its what i wanna do to get my music career launched and figure it would be better to actually start in an area of the music business.(radio host=meet with big names in the industry=eaiser way to climb the ladder and end up getting signed)

That is probably a good idea but I think I would call first. If you are still in high school you should speak with your guidance counselor as well. College is important. Do not limit yourself based on a lack of income. There are lots of scholarships available. My daughter attends Furman and nearly all of her tuition was covered by scholarships last year.

Yup, my aunt went there for tv broadcasting I think (not sure if she went on to Clemson or not) but she works, or did work, for the local tv channel there in Seneca.
