About the Atlanta Location Near Me
Don’t be fooled; the typical college or trade-school radio broadcasting school can cost between 10-50 thousand dollars or more, and they train you in classrooms and campus studios, not in real radio stations. Why go to that expense when for a fraction of that amount you could learn the ins and outs of radio inside a real broadcasting facility? Play it smart, get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros while you make vital industry connections. Our radio school is by far the most effective, cost-efficient option on the market today.
Home to nearly half a million people–and anchoring a larger metro area of over 5 million–the city of Atlanta is truly an economic and cultural hub for the southeastern U.S. Home to the world’s busiest airport since 1998, Atlanta is literally bustling with activity and opportunity. It’s home to no less than three notable major sports teams–the Atlanta Falcons (NFL), the Atlanta Hawks (NBA), and the Atlanta Braves (MLB), a team with a long-standing tradition of making the playoffs and/or World Series. Musically, Atlanta has a vibrant music scene, and is internationally known for its hip-hop scene. And Atlanta is also known for its beauty as a city, particularly for its Òtree canopyÓ; the city has an abundance of trees, to the point that from many vantage points the skyline looks like it is set in a forest.
In the radio industry, Atlanta has an influential and lasting legacy. Ranked the nation’s 9th largest radio market by Arbitron, Atlanta is blanketed by signals from dozens of high-powered radio stations broadcasting in almost every genre. In particular, Atlanta is known as a breeding ground of sorts for national radio personalities and talk show hosts; Ryan Secrest and Sean Hannity both got started in this market, and national talk show hosts Clark Howard and Neal Boortz both currently syndicate their shows from Atlanta’s number one news/talk station WSB, broadcasting on 95.5 FM and AM-750.
