Exploring Program Broadcasts Student’s Career Interests

Radio Dubuque hosted area high school students for the first meeting of the Broadcasting Exploring Program on September 15. From 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. students learned about a career in broadcasting by experiencing it hands-on. The program continues for an additional five weeks, ending on October 20, 2016.

The Broadcasting Exploring program gives students the chance to experience a career in broadcasting. Over the six-week session, the students will be on the air, produce a commercial, gather news stories, and do a play-by-play of a sporting event, in addition to learning about sales and copy writing.

Exploring is a hands-on career exploration program for young men and women ages 14-20 who have completed the 8th grade. There are currently 14 Exploring programs in the Dubuque and surrounding areas. Exploring is a part of the Northeast Iowa Council, Boy Scouts of America headquartered in Dubuque, IA.
