Located along the shores of Lake Erie on the northern edge of Ohio, Cleveland is home to just under 400,000 people, but anchors a metro area of over 2 million. A city largely built on manufacturing and commerce, Cleveland also has a reputation for culture, hosting one of the world’s most noteworthy symphony orchestras (the Cleveland Orchestra). Cleveland is also home to several major league sports teams, the Cleveland Indians (MLB), Cleveland Browns (NFL) and Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA).
Cleveland also has an interesting legacy in radio media, as local DJ Alan Freed (aka “Moondog”) is credited for coining the phrase Òrock & rollÓ on the radio here in the early 1950s (Cleveland is also home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). Today, Arbitron ranks Cleveland as the Number 30 radio market in the U.S., with over 30 radio stations sending signals across the area and competing for market share. Whether you want to be a radio DJ, sportscaster, programming director, talk show host or other radio-related professional, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to learn and grow in Cleveland.
