Rhyean Hylands shares with us, “Right before graduating from Columbia Academy at VanArts, I was lucky enough to get a job with the mighty Corus Entertainment. My job right now includes doing promotional events for CFOX, Classic Rock 101 and CKNW, doing on-air traffic reports for AM730 and running board operations for DJ’s who are live on location. Being behind the board and in front of a mic would have been a lot more overwhelming had I not been doing it every day for the last 10 months with Columbia Academy at VanArts, and I’m so grateful for the training I received while I was there. The daily feedback our instructors provide is a part of making sure you become the best broadcaster you can be, the daily lectures give you an understanding about how a radio station works behind the scenes, and the on-air time is the most fun you’ll ever have! Thank you to Columbia Academy at VanArts – best life decision I’ve made yet!”
Ryan Henderson also shares with us, “Thanks to the great Broadcasting program at Columbia Academy at VanArts, I was able to get an internship with TEAM 1040/ 1410 and am now working for them. All of the equipment and editing work I’m doing now is very much how I was trained while in school.”
Congratulations and best wishes to all of our Broadcasting grads, and we look forward to seeing how your careers continue to rock the airwaves.
