Although one of the largest markets for radio in the west United States is in Seattle, Washington also has a somewhat significant market for radio in Tacoma and Olympia. And with Internet radio continuing to expand, new stations spring up online all the time, and the call for on-air talent for positions such as sportscasters, announcers, and DJs looks to remain consistent.

A lot of those who started in the radio industry have also moved on to be one of the top TV sports and news casters, with radio being a natural stepping stone to television. Washington State is not only a prosperous radio and TV market onto itself, but also a source of raw talent from which the rest of the country draws on.

Not to diminish the significance of studying in classrooms and learning from textbooks, but these mentorship programs help the students gain that advantage over the competition.
