The state capital of Texas, the city of Austin is home to just over 820,000 people, but anchors a metropolitan area of nearly 1.8 million. More than just a seat of government, Austin is known worldwide as a hub of art, culture and entertainment. Dubbed the “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin is home to more bands and artists per capita than nearly any other city in the world. The indie film industry is also huge here, fueled in part by the highly rated film program at UT-Austin, and in part by numerous area film festivals. The world’s most noteworthy indie festival, SXSW, held in Austin each spring, caters to both music and film legacies.

According to Arbitron rankings, Austin is the Number 37 radio market in the U.S., with a diversity of radio stations competing for market share. If you plan on becoming a talk show host, radio DJ, programming director, newscaster or other radio professional, Austin holds some great opportunities for you to learn, connect, and grow into a career. And the Radio Connection provides you a gateway to the Austin radio market, something traditional schools just don’t offer.

The secret to our success is our revolutionary mentor-extern approach. Forget about isolated classrooms and simulated studios; you won’t find either of these in our program. Instead, from the very first day of your training until you graduate, you’ll study in a real radio station as a student extern, guided and mentored one-on-one by a radio professional with years of experience. As you become familiar with the day-to-day workings of the studio, you’ll also have the chance to form vital working relationships with other industry professionals, which can give you an advantage for getting work when job openings occur. For us and many of our graduates, there’s simply no better opportunity to break into radio! Enroll in our Austin radio school alternative today, and discover why many of our graduates get hired.
