Tomorrow's Media Trained Today

The South African media industry – and broadcast in particular – is facing change as it has never experienced before. The media industry needs new skills – skills that have never existed before. Learning needs a new approach, with new knowledge and new competencies. People entering, as well as those already working in this industry need an educational institution that researches change and future trends; that draws on those with the hands-on, up-to-date experience; and that can see what skills will be needed a year or more in advance.

Rival of digital technology has revolutionised all broadcast. The number of radio stations and television channels has mushroomed. Audiences have so much choice today. Audiences and broadcasters alike now also have digital internet and social media with which they can augment their entertainment experiences.
