Broadcasting encompasses audio and visual programming that is designed to reach a wide audience, usually through television or radio. Different programs and stations may specialize in news, entertainment or specific information. Success is measured by the ability to entertain and retain an audience, and how well they�re satisfied.
While it helps to have a background in journalism, communications or production to break into broadcasting, it�s not always necessary. Many entry-level positions are available as internships, although they are often unpaid. However, if you have a passion for communicating, there are few careers more exciting than broadcasting, with an unlimited chance to speak with people from all walks of life.
