The Radio Show, produced by NAB and RAB, brings together radio broadcasters and industry experts to share knowledge and insight on the latest trends and innovations for the digital age, while providing an opportunity to network and develop practical business solutions for immediate application. Selected students will receive complimentary registration and invitations to pre-conference events on September 29, such as the NAB Education Foundation/BEA Career Fair and Radio Show Scholars Orientation, networking opportunities and special events. Students will also be recognized throughout the Radio Show for their participation in the program and to promote their presence at the event.

“Helping the radio industry attract new talent to the medium is critical to our future,” said RAB President and CEO Erica Farber. “We are so delighted to bring this innovative program to the Radio Show under the leadership of our radio broadcasting underwriters.”
