High School Students Can Learn Radio At Camp KPAC

James Baker

Are you a high school student who is interested in learning what it's like to work at a radio station?

Then apply for Texas Public Radio's Camp KPAC, a week-long summer enrichment camp where you can gain hands on radio broadcasting experience. 

Texas Public Radio's Nathan Cone and James Baker will teach campers basic techniques for music recording, editing and production. Students will also hone their interviewing skills and learn how to write and edit copy for radio. Campers will also be taught how to work a digital audio board and learn radio announcing techniques. 
At the end of the week, campers will use the skills they learn to interview and record a student musician in the KPAC studios to produce a broadcast quality segment.
