Please make sure that, after submitting the form below, you receive a confirmation email for your proposal.

Live Shows: For shows accepted to do a live show (or pre-record using the RFB studio), all hosts and co-hosts must undergo a live 2 hour training session, as well as 4 hours of shadowing or supervised live broadcasting before the start of season 6. Training weeks are scheduled for October 28 – November 12, 2017.
Prerecorded Shows: If you are submitting a show that you will pre-record from home or any studio other than RFB’s studio in Bushwick, you must also submit a 5-10 minute “Sound Portrait” of your show which will act as an “audition tape.” On this recording, you should describe the concept of your show, samples of the kind of content you intend to broadcast, and anything else that will help showcase your concept and skills. If accepted, this sound portrait will be used on your show page to promote your show, so be sure to take the time to think it through and make it sound great! Additionally, you will be asked in the proposal submission form to describe your studio setup, including the types of mic(s) you will be using, as well as any additional equipment you have available – mixers, compressors, editing software, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: We are only accepting a limited number (5-10) new shows for Season 5. Acceptance will be based on a number of factors, including whether or not we have slots available that match your availability as indicated on your proposal. Therefore, please include ALL times you would be available to broadcast, not just preferred times. Additionally, all new hosts must meet with the RFB Management Team before your show receives final approval.
