Radio Talent Farm System

Talent is listed alphabetically by last name with brief information on each including graduation date, along with resume and an aircheck if relevant. The list includes talent interested in on-air, sales, traffic, digital, production, etc. Keep in mind each talent is in a different stage of their growth and are continuing to develop. Most all are on an entry level with limited or no experience, other than possibly college radio, with the exception of those listed that have already accepted their first job in the industry and have begun their career. Come back to this site to hear updated material from each young talent as they continue to progress and to hear and to see new “future broadcasters” added to the Radio Talent Farm System.
