ocb2Hey there! Are you still interested in broadcasting school? Have you ever tried to film a short movie with you and your pals, but the shots keep coming out too dark or too bright? The Ohio Center for Broadcasting (OCB) can help you solve those problems and many more problems you think you could have with a camera. The staff here at OCB can help you create the best commercial, music video, even news casts! Your Parent(s)/Guardian(s) would be so proud of you! Probably your spouse and/or children too. Well, you had fun filming things, but it turns out, that wasn’t your passion. What if you are shy but still want to be heard? Try radio! Radio is a great way for any person(s) to express how they feel on any subject they choose to discuss (within FCC regulation, of course).  Here at the Ohio Center for Broadcasting, the staff strives to give each student the necessary tools they will need to create successful futures for themselves, including; how to write a proper resume, interview etiquette, cover letters, thank you letters to potential employers, and even how to build and customize a professional website for yourself. If you go to Google and search “benefits of broadcasting school”, the first thing to pop up on the search results is a link to the main page . Don’t believe me? Here is a link to the search results to my suggested search: . The unfortunate thing about the beonair main page, is that you can’t access any additional information about the school, until you fill out an info card and request information about the school, which in turn, they will call you when you didn’t really even want a phone call in the first place, you just wanted to do a bit of silent reading on your own without having to talk to anybody. But in case that turned you away from broadcasting, don’t let my rambling scare you, I’m just a social awkward 20-something girl with anxiety and I talk too much. So here’s a video to bring you back around to the idea of broadcasting.“>

 There is also plenty of fun to be had in just audio. Students at OCB will learn all the fun of being in a production studio recording practice radio commercials, mini dramas, even their own songs if they so choose! If we like your song, we’ll even air it on the . The super intelligent staff will actually show you how to upload things to your SoundCloud account, and even help you get started with SoundCloud if you don’t have it. Then you can upload all the serious, silly, professional things you want. Here is a 20 second demo of what it’s like inside of an interns head via SoundCloud;

     Speaking of interns, students at OCB have opportunities to intern with local radio and TV stations. It’s a great way to begin networking and you could even land a full time job wherever you intern. If your internship doesn’t suit you (it happens, its alright), then OCB has a wonderful job placement program to keep your foot in the door and they will help guide you in the direction you want to go.


About Vanessa Shackelford

I am a student at the Ohio Center for Broadcasting, I am a veteran of the United States Army, and I love expanding my knowledge about the world and I love to travel. I am hoping to launch a career traveling with National Geographic as either a photographer (or film producer if need be, but photography is the ultimate goal).
