The AVC is hiring

Radio America, a division of The American Studies Center, has earned a reputation for “turning talk into action.” The network has provided a voice for American conservatives for over twenty-five years through 5 Presidential administrations and 14 congresses. The stated mission of Radio America is to produce and distribute radio programs, documentaries, public service announcements and special features that reflect the parent foundation's commitment to traditional American values, limited government, and the free market.

Radio America has built a solid reputation for excellence among the many thousands of stations which have broadcast the network's offerings over the past twenty five years. During that time, Radio America has won a host of awards including the New York International Radio Festivals Gold and Silver medals, the ABA Silver Gavel, Gabriel, Ohio State, Freedom Foundation and many others.

James C. Roberts founded Radio America in 1985 while talk radio was in its infancy. Like television, a few large networks that espoused a largely liberal view dominated the radio airwaves, and subsequently set the national news agenda. Radio America was launched to bring the ideals of limited government and free market thought to the great issues that affect the American people, as well as restore balance to the national airwaves.


The mission of the American Veterans Center is to preserve and promote the legacy of America’s servicemen and women of every generation. The American Veterans Center is a project of the American Studies Center. The AVC is an outgrowth of the World War II Veterans Committee, which itself grew out of “World War II Chronicles” a weekly radio series co-produced by Radio America and the National Archives.

The American Veterans Center's mission is accomplished through a number of activities and projects supporting our men and women in uniform. The Center works directly with veterans to provide a forum for them to share their lessons and experiences with the public, and with future generations.

Programming includes documentaries and radio programs, speaker programs, its magazine American Valor Quarterly and oral history projects, both featuring first hand accounts directly from veterans, its annual Veterans Conference and the National Memorial Day Parade, the nation’s largest Memorial Day event. The Center houses the World War II Veterans Committee, which specifically focuses on those veterans of the Greatest Generation.
