ABOUT BROADCAST CENTER.
Broadcast Center has a rich history providing training for broadcast journalism positions since 1972.
Broadcast Center’s founder said that in all of his years in broadcasting, he met more people who entered the industry in spite of their education than because of it. That observation prompted him to develop a broadcasting college, which provided an honest, practical, and usable education that could be applied to the realities of the broadcast industry.
From that philosophy grew Broadcast Center, a school built on merit and judged by the quality and success of its graduates.
In 1972, Broadcast Center opened in the St. Louis suburb of Clayton, Missouri, with only a handful of students and staff members.
By 1976, the school had outgrown its original space. In order to accommodate more students, staff, and equipment, the Center moved to a much larger building in Clayton. Located only a few blocks from several radio stations, Broadcast Center became central gathering point for many of the greatest broadcasters in St. Louis.

In 1997, Broadcast Center relocated once again to an even larger facility at 2360 Hampton Avenue, just south of I-44. Now with approximately 12,000 square feet, the Center maintains fully equipped radio station control room studios, announcing booths, audio production studios, a television studio with an adjoining news set, a television control studio, digital video production studios.
The Center’s future rests upon a record of training and career services, where enrolled students are educated by professional broadcasters for a growing industry, constantly in search of talent to fill job opportunities.
