IRTS BROADCAST SALES ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
Sunday, June 5 - Saturday, August 6, 2016
New York City
Application Due: February 29, 2016, midnight EST
Devoted to increasing diversity in the media and entertainment industry, the IRTS Foundation seeks outstanding minority students in their senior year or graduate school to participate in a nine-week summer sales training program. Sales Associates have an exclusive opportunity to participate in a sales training program traditionally reserved for actual station group employees.
Held in tandem with the prestigious IRTS Summer Fellowship Program, the Broadcast Sales Associate Program is a diversity initiative designed to give graduating seniors a jumpstart on the television and radio management track.
The Broadcast Sales Associate Program was initiated by former IRTS Chairman Tom Kane when he was President and CEO of CBS Television Stations Group. According to Kane, “In order to achieve true diversity in our business, we must get more minorities into management, and sales continues to be the favored track to get there.”
Because the majority of colleges and universities do not offer courses in broadcast sales, previous experience in broadcast sales is not necessary.
COST: Travel, housing and living allowance included.
