About the Cleveland Location Near Me

Cleveland In Cleveland, the best way to launch a radio career is to extern in one of Cleveland’s radio stations. That’s where we come in.

Don’t spend 10-50 thousand dollars or more to study radio broadcasting in the isolated classrooms of a college or trade school; we can train you in a real radio facility for a fraction of that cost. Make the smart move for your career, and get connected to the radio industry by training inside it. No school can train you more affordably and effectively than our radio school alternative.

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.

Through our many industry relationships forged over nearly three decades, the RADIO CONNECTION can help you connect to the Cleveland radio industry like no ordinary school can. Through our innovative mentor-extern approach, we place you in an actual Cleveland radio facility as an extern studying one-on-one under a seasoned professional. This not only gives you a more effective and practical education in radio, but it also gives you the chance to gain real work experience and form valuable working relationships within the industry, providing you a solid advantage when job openings occur. The best way to have a future in radio is to get in the door from the very beginning of your training–and that’s exactly where we put you.
