Mentors Make Better Instructors

New York City DJ, Chuck Dogg

Many RADIO SCHOOLS claim that if you enroll with them that you will learn from a working professional. But are these teachers really “working” in the radio business, or are they “working as teachers”? We have nothing against teachers, we have high regard for teachers and commend them for their dedication to education, but the claim begs the question: If these teachers from the big schools are so good, how come they have time to teach you in a classroom? You’d think that if they were actually working radio professionals or show hosts they’d be at their own radio stations or show sets, instead of in a college classroom teaching a class of 20 or more students? Of course, the best way to proceed when choosing a Radio DJ or Broadcasting School is to do the research and get the facts.

With Radio Connection your classroom is in a real radio station or broadcasting operation and your mentor is ALWAYS a working radio DJ or show host—in other words, a pro, who has interviewed you and agreed to take you on and train you in his own on-air radio station or broadcast facility. The projects that you will be working on are a combination of your course curriculum and the real life projects, tasks and duties that are daily occurrences at a radio station or hosted show. There is no way a classroom could hope to duplicate the energy and excitement of being around the live, on-air environment of a radio station or hosted broadcast show. Do you really think that this kind of real world education could be duplicated in a classroom? Imagine all the real world radio and broadcast industry contacts you will meet. There’s just no way a regular college can expose you to real world contacts! And even if you do meet a pro or two at the school’s “career day” seminar or lecture, do you really think that he is going to remember you, much less ever hire you? Especially, when there are ten, twenty, thirty or more other kids in your class?
