Engineering for radio broadcasting encompasses a wide range of specialized training; electrical engineering, audio and RF engineering, computer engineering and information technology knowledge are helpful–if not always required–to pursue a career in this field.

Every radio station has a broadcast engineer to set up and repair all studio equipment, broadcast automation systems, computer servers, and to maintain the transmitter tower. As the broadcast industry continues to consolidate, one engineer may work for an entire group of stations owned by the same parent company, either as a full-time salaried staffer or independent contractor.
