Do you pride yourself on being a well-informed individual? Do you consume the news the way other people watch sitcoms? Are you obsessed with the goings on of the world? Do you have a smoldering passion to be a news anchor or caster?
The Radio Connection’s sole purpose is to help you do just that. We want to help you jump-start a career in radio news casting.
Our approach is simple. We take you, a passionate and intelligent individual, and pair you with a mentor, who is a currently working newscaster. And you learn from them. You learn the technical side of the industry and the professional simultaneously. You’ll be working day in and day out alongside some of the best in the business and you’ll be proving to them that you’re serious and you want this.
You’ll be making contacts. Valuable contacts that, if you play your cards right, will one day be able to hire you.
Radio is similar to all the other entertainment industries; you have to know people to get in. And that’s exactly what we do. We help you get your foot in the door. We put you in the room with the right people and the we say, “Go, prove yourself.”
