Upon completion of this class you will be able to schedule sit-ins with DJs and assist them with their shows. This will give you a hands-on radio experience. After you've sat in on 3 music shows you will do a 30-minute recorded show to test out your skills. Your show will be reviewed and you will have the opportunity to submit a program proposal for your own show, and begin subbing for current shows
