Recent Television/Radio graduates report that there are many more jobs "out there" than they imagined when they first enrolled at SIUE. Besides finding employment at television and radio stations, our graduates are writing and producing videos for public relations agencies and P.R. clients, working in industrial and corporate communications, serving the video needs of hospitals, schools, colleges and law offices, designing and producing interactive video and audio for world wide web sites. As well, broadcasting graduates have moved into the business of marketing and marketing audio and video equipment, and yes, many graduates still find jobs in radio, BROADCAST and cable television, news production, sales, traffic, operations, and in other departments. The new kind of broadcasting graduate our department produces is a valuable commodity throughout the MassComm job market.
Our grads include the president of one of the largest St. Louis tv/film production companies, a Hollywood screenwriter/producer, an ESPN baseball announcer, producer-directors, reporters, anchors and news managers at every television station in St. Louis, not to mention our grads in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and elsewhere. There's a director of production at Westwood One Radio Network, head of medical video for a major hospital and a senior digital video animator for a large post production house. Our graduates work in either the production, news, promotion, sales and management departments of every television station in St. Louis.
