About the Cincinnati Location Near Me
In the Cincinnati, Ohio radio market, the best way to break into the business is to work as an apprentice (extern) in a real radio station–and we’re the only school that puts you there.

Our radio school alternative is the smartest, most cost-effective training program on the market today.
One of the most notable centers for manufacturing and commerce in the midwest (home to Kroger and Proctor and Gamble, among other major corporations), Cincinnati sits in a strategic location along the Ohio River bordering Kentucky. First populated by immigrants mainly from Germany and Ireland, Cincinnati has developed its own European-influenced culture over the years, as witnessed in its dialect and its food, among other things. Cincinnati-style chili, a unique concoction served over spaghetti, is a favorite in chili parlors around the area. Cincinnatians also love their sports–especially their Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds–so area sportscasters generally have a lot to keep them busy. Notable Cincinnatians include TBS founder Ted Turner, indie rock bands Over the Rhine and The National, singer/actress Rosemary Clooney (and her nephew, actor George Clooney), singer Doris Day, President William Howard Taft, and more professional athletes than can be mentioned here.
Anchoring a metro population of 2.1 million people, Cincinnati is ranked by Arbitron as the nation’s 29th largest radio market, with dozens of high-powered stations blanketing the area with a diversity of formats. Among the top stations in the area are WEBN (Rock), WKRQ ÒQ-102Ó (Top-40) and WLW at 700-AM, one of the region’s most prominent News/Talk stations (and the ÒHome of the RedsÓ). Whether your dream is to be a sportscaster, talk show host, station manager, program director or radio DJ, Cincinnati certainly holds plenty of real-world opportunities to learn and grow–and RADIO CONNECTION can help you connect to those opportunities like no other school can.
