Media Sales Academy

The NAB Leadership Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the National Association of Broadcasters, the voice of America’s radio and television stations in Washington D.C. seeks 25 Media Sales Academy fellows to participate in our media sales training and recruitment program.

Our 6-month hybrid career development program allows college students and recent graduates to get a glimpse into what it's like to be a part of the fast-paced broadcast industry which is innovative and fun!

During your time as a Media Sales Academy fellow, you will sharpen your leadership skills, explore media sales skills and strategies, and network with top media executives in the industry. The program opens with an in-person session at NAB Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and is followed by virtual learning sessions. The Media Sales Academy closes in March 2024 in Washington D.C. with a sales-pitch competition (winners will receive a cash prize) and an opportunity to land a paid internship and/or entry-level position during our career fair.

As a program participant, you will receive a $500 stipend, and become a certified media specialist with training from leading media sales organizations and RAB. We are looking for the next generation of problem solvers and go-getters to drive change within broadcasting and empower our future. Are you ready?
