Armed with diplomas and practical experience, graduates of Ontario college radio programs will be prepared to work in all areas of radio broadcasting.

Radio Broadcasting Jobs and Salaries

Broadcasting jobs can be found at public and private stations and in all types of radio programming, from news and sports to talk, music, community events and more. With extensive broadcasting knowledge, graduates are equipped to work in a variety of roles, including (but not limited to):

  • Announcer
  • Producer
  • Copywriter
  • Radio Programmer
  • Media Sales

Jobs in radio often have unusual work hours. Announcers are typically on air for only a few hours at a time, but could be on anytime from early morning to late at night. Much of the job will be behind the scenes, as broadcasting careers involve a lot of program preparation.

Radio broadcasting salaries typically start on the lower end, between $24,000 and $29,000 per year. However, higher-level positions like producer and director could result in salaries upwards of $70,000, depending on the station.
