The digital explosion has created a need for multimedia personalities (MMP) to be part of the talent mix at a number of stations. More stations are employing an MMP as part of their talent roster. The MMP is not only involved with audio content, but also visual content that's used to attract new and retain existing audiences. A demo or show reel is a must-have for employment. Many colleges have specific courses for training people to become MMPs and provide internship programs, which are great ways to get in the door.
