This business shares nothing in common with the original NIB. The original organization founded in Winnipeg in 1962 merged with a production company an FM radio station and ceased operations in 2000.

The owners of this organization are misrepresenting themselves in more than one way… Read Full Review

Just to correct the facts, funded in 1962 by Ed McCrea - correct.
Ed worked with Lorne Green, Andrew Allen, Monty Hall to name a few. He worked for various radio and television stations and produced syndicated radio features for several years. He also appeared on the C.B.C. as the lead in a radio drama called 'The Jackson's' for around 15 years.

He won a scholarship to the Pasadina Playhouse Theatre and was offered an TV Anchor position in a U.S. major market. He was a talented professional and was well liked by hundreds of aspiring broadcasters he helped to start careers. He was sincere and a gentleman and always saw the positive in people.

This business was taken over by his son and eventually merged with a large corporation in around 2000.

The coaches were incredibly helpful and nice, it was very easy to learn new techniques. Perhaps they accept students who are "okay" because they themselves want to improve their speaking voice/perhaps to communicate better… Read Full Review

I was assured by the National Institute of Broadcasting that no demo would leave the studio until it met his standards. After completing my demo I was basically laughed out of every agents office. They couldn't believe I paid for it! I did the demo in 1 take, and the sound engineer , who seemed in a hurry to be some place else, asssured me it was great!!… Read Full Review

“The National Institute of Broadcasting was founded by...”

Written on: 30/04/2007 by realsitic (2 reviews written)

The National Institute of Broadcasting was founded by Ed McRea located in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada.

Ed McRea was a man of honesty and integrity.

Since Ed's passing, the NIB continues with it's head office, now located in Toronto Ontario Canada.

The only negative side to it, is the lack of broadcasting job opportunities in the Canadian market today.

However, if you feel that you are one of the lucky few that will get hired by a radio or TV station, then I would recommend the NIB.

I am a… Read Full Review

Paulmcc's Response to realsitic's Review

Written on: 30/12/2013

The Toronto operation was a franchise issued by the founder, Ed McCrea to a man named John Dickens. Before Ed died his long standing relationship with John had been strained as John was not living up to previous commitments related to their operating agreement. After his death the two organizations ceased to interact and Ed's family did not have the resources to legally challenge the Dickens estates use of the NIB name.

NIB Winnipeg (Ed McCrea) merged with a large Manitoba corporation as a marketing firm, production company and radio station operating in Winnipeg. That corporation became insolvent at a later date after the amalgamation.

Apparently, the Dickens NIB operation is said to have ceased operations some time ago. However, this writer has no details or facts to substantiate this.
