Located near North Carolina’s southern border, the city of Charlotte is the largest city in the state, with about 1.8 million residents, and anchoring a wider metro area of nearly 2.5 million. Besides being known as the second largest financial center in America behind New York City, Charlotte is well-known for its NASCAR racing, with many considering the Charlotte Motor Speedway to be the “home of NASCAR.” Notable personalities with ties to Charlotte include newscaster Maureen O’Boyle, actors Skeet Ulrich and Jessica Stroup, evangelist Billy Graham, NASCAR champ Richard Petty, and gospel singer John P. Kee, to name a few. Charlotte has also turned out more than its fair share of professional athletes, with lots of current and former NFL, NBA and MLB players. Charlotte itself is home to the NFL team Carolina Panthers, as well the NBA’s Carolina Bobcats.

Arbitron ranks Charlotte as the 24th largest radio market in the U.S., with dozens of strong-signal stations competing for market share in formats such as News/Talk, Top-40, Urban Contemporary, Soft Rock, Latino and Religious. Whether your dream is to become a radio DJ, a sportscaster, a talk show host, a technical engineer or a programming director, the Charlotte area holds plenty of real-world opportunities to learn. And the RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to these opportunities in ways no ordinary school can.

Thanks to our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, the classroom setting has been completely eliminated from our program. Instead, from day one, you are placed as an apprentice (extern) in a real radio facility, to be trained and mentored one-on-one by an established radio pro. With our structured curriculum and plenty of hands-on learning, in about 6 months, you’ll gain a valuable working knowledge of the radio industry–and by learning on-the-job, you’ll also have the chance to make vital industry connections, giving you a solid advantage when job openings arise. Our results speak for themselves: over 70 percent of our graduates get hired, some even before they graduate! Enroll in our Charlotte radio school alternative today, and you could be next.
