The Chicago school graduates about 125 students each year through its one-year, nationally accredited program. Alumni now working in broadcasting often return as guest speakers as well, giving back some of their practical experience to the next broadcasters. Through its efforts, the Illinois and Ohio Centers for Broadcasting are educating the next generation of broadcasters.
