National Radio Talent System Launches
July 2, 2013

Industry consultant Dan Vallie announces the National Radio Talent System, a new incubator for the next generation of radio talent on college campuses around the country. The National Radio Talent System holds ten-day classes at colleges, based off the model of the Kellar Radio Talent Institute, which Vallie heads up at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.

Vallie says, "It’s the broadcasters who have vision, passion and love for the business that recognize this long-standing need and the importance of finding young, entry level talent, and the National Radio Talent System is the solution to that need. Most know that, while it’s imperative that we continue to have advances in technology and insure that radio is ubiquitous, success in our industry and the future will always depend on people. We have to attract the best and the brightest who have the talent and desire to get into radio to insure we not only hire great young talent today, but also to insure we have great leadership well into this 21st century…and that is not only possible, it has already begun. This is a noble effort."

A second Radio Talent System will launch later this month, the Kentucky Broadcasters Association WKU Radio Talent Institute at Western Kentucky University.

Individual broadcasters, groups or organizations who would like to join the National Radio Talent System in establishing and sponsoring a Radio Talent Institute on a campus in their state and region should contact DanVallie@NationalRadioTalentSystem.com or call (828) 262-1502.
