Pre-Requisite:  GME 411, 412, 414, 415 Intro and Advanced Broadcast Media and permission of instructor.

Course Description:  Applied Broadcast Media Radio Operations (ABRO) gives third and fourth year Broadcast Media Arts students a deep dive into all aspects of operating KMIH FM and also an opportunity to be part of a full service Morning Show “Breakfast on the Bridge”. The instructor co-hosted the popular Bob Rivers Show in Seattle for twenty five years that earned Radio Hall of Fame induction in 2023 and is uniquely qualified to share his knowledge of morning radio broadcasting with MIHS students. This course is designed for Broadcast Media Arts students who have excelled at the previous levels of the program. Acceptance into ABRO is by permission of the instructor and interested candidates must participate in an application process prior to registration. The class meets first period and there are also expectations of work to be done outside of the class period including before school starts.

Work Load:  To be a successful ABRO candidate you must make the KMIH radio operation a top priority, particularly in the morning hours. Students get to continue to produce shows and podcasts produced in previous years but also add the responsibilities of creating a live morning show, operating the radio station and website as well as leading the student staff in all of our radio classes.

Why would you be interested in the Class:  This is a class for students who are considering continuing in communications and broadcast programs in college and that want to take a very deep dive in providing full service content and operating KMIH. All students are expected to participate in regular live broadcasts and produce content with a minimum of supervision and prompting. In ABRO we are mission driven as opposed to "assignment" and "grade" driven.
