Connecticut School of Broadcasting to Reopen

The Connecticut School of Broadcasting has agreed to complete unfinished classes at all of its campuses, just weeks after shutting down because lender PNC Financial seized its assets. This is extremely welcome news.

We’ve learned that DLJ Growth Capital Partners will foot the bill. A bit unclear if they’re doing this out of the goodness or their hearts or at the tip of the Connecticut AG’s boot, but it doesn’t much matter. The endgame is that students will get what they paid for (at least the education, if not the ongoing services). Worth noting that this agreement is not a reflection of PNC extending its loan (it didn’t).

Classes could begin as early as Monday at some campuses, and info can be found at the revived CSB website. Also, here’s a related press release from the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office.
