There're plenty of opportunities in front and  behind the mic.

PROGRAM DIRECTOR

WHAT THEY DO: In radio, program directors are generally responsible for more than a single station. They work closely with the entire on-air staff to develop exciting promotions that enhance the programs on the air. For TV, the programming manager is responsible for maintaining traffic logs, scheduling services, etc. The PD's programming objectives support the goals of the general manager and the general sales manager.

REQUIREMENTS: In order to coordinate various departments, this position generally goes to highly-experienced station personnel.

STATION MANAGER

WHAT THEY DO: A station manager is the chief operating officer of the station. The station manager must have effective personnel management skills and a thorough knowledge of all aspects of broadcast operation. REQUIREMENTS: This is not an entry-level position and requires a good deal of broadcast experience, knowledge of station operations and financial management as well as a higher education.

NEWS REPORTERS

WHAT THEY DO: The key "front-line" people in the news department are the beat reporters. They are on-the-scene at every kind of event, and larger organizations may compartmentalize assignments, such as health reporter, education reporter, entertainment reporter, etc.

Local news reporters must be excellent writers, capable of working quickly and accurately to sum up the key elements of a news story and make it understandable and relevant to the audience. In today's new media, reporters must be able to write to all digital media, including social networks.

REQUIREMENTS: Often reporters can enter smaller markets before they have completed their degree in broadcast journalism. Nonetheless, a college degree will be necessary to move onto larger markets and more responsibility.
