Urban Youth Academy Broadcasting Program

Dear Academy Members and Friends,

Beginning January 10, 2015, the Academy will be offering broadcasting classes designed to introduce Academy members to radio broadcasting. This is an great way to show members that there are career opportunities in baseball and softball that are beyond the field.  The broadcasting classes are available to all Academy members ages 13 and older. Classes are instructed by 102.3 KJLH Anchor and Accelerated Radio School of Broadcasting instructor, David Hernandez.

Please see the flyer below for more information or contact Erin Jones-Wesley at Erin.Joneswesley@mlb.com.
