Library Resources Guide - BROADCASTING, RADIO AND TELEVISION

About Radio and Television at MCCC
MCCC's radio option prepares students for employment as radio announcers, news reporters, salespersons, copywriters and other positions. The Television option prepares students to work in film, television, broadcast journalism and video production. Both options prepare students to transfer to four-year schools.
