Computers have changed the world of work; definitely the broadcast work environment. The days of complete job segmentation are over, having been replaced with sometimes aggressive turf-protection issues. This course is intended to provide the broadcast engineer with a program or content director’s perspective. By approaching the necessary engineering responsibilities from a programming standpoint, potential areas of conflict and confusion can be highlighted and this avoided. This course has no technical requirements and is designed for all who are broadcast engineers, AM, FM, and television.
