The PBS announcer course in the introductory course for anyone wanting to become a PBS announcer. As you know, PBS is community radio station devoted to playing specialist and under-represented music, so if it’s your dream to be a PBS announcer consider undertaking the course. Topics covered include:

1. PBS
2. Introduction to Radio/Writing for Radio
3. Radio Voice/Presentation
4. Interviewing/Broadcast Law
