The 2013-2014 school year was the first year of the High School Initiative project.Ken-Beno

The objectives were:

  • To interest students in a broadcast-related career with special emphasis on sales and engineering
  • To encourage juniors and seniors to attend the student seminar in Madison
  • To compile a list of high schools with broadcast and marketing related classes
  • To increase the visibility of the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association (WBA) and the WBA Foundation (WBAF)

The fifty- to ninety-minute presentation to marketing and/or broadcast related classes examined the duties and advantages of pursuing a career in Radio/TV sales and engineering along with other topics related to broadcasting. The presentation reached 215 students at these seven schools: Wausau West, Madison East, Phillips, Laconia (Rosendale), Green Bay Southwest, Franklin, and Middleton. - MORE -
