During the 43 weeks of training, students spend over 600 hours preparing for and delivering on-air shows, newscasts and sportscasts... plus creating and producing commercials. Our studios feature the same type of equipment found in the over 12,000 small and medium market radio stations throughout the United States.
Although studio work is fun, creative and exciting, ABS offers much more.
The 43 week course also includes voice training, lectures and one-on-one instruction with professional instructors. This combination and variety of education and skills development provides the student with the most practical and focused training available.

Students at each campus deliver live broadcasts to a world-wide audience through KABS -World-Wide Internet Radio. The type and quality of equipment found at ABS is the same as that found in a typical radio station. Students receive equal time in these studios and are assigned various jobs (announcer, newscaster, sportscaster, etc.) simulating the functions which will be required at an actual radio station. Students are guided through the correct procedures by a qualified instructor.
Upon graduation, graduates are knowledgeable in every facet of the broadcast industry and are qualified to be employed at virtually any radio station. ABS also provides lifetime job placement assistance upon graduation.
