About the Denver Location Near Me
In the Denver radio market, there is no better way to get your foot in the door than by apprenticing in a Denver broadcasting studio–and RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that makes that happen for you.
You could spend 10-50 thousand dollars to study radio broadcasting in an isolated classroom of a college or trade school, or you could spend a fraction of that amount and learn the ropes directly from the pros in a real broadcasting studio. Play it smart, get on the inside track, and get connected to the radio industry by being trained from inside it. Compare us with the competition: our radio school is the most practical, most effective and most cost-effective radio training program you’ll find anywhere.
Colorado’s state capital and largest city, Denver is home to over 600,000 people, but anchors a 12-county regional metro of about 3 million–making it the 20th largest radio market in the United States, with over 40 significant radio stations broadcasting across the metro. While hot formats such as Adult Contemporary and Top-40 are certainly popular in Denver, the lion’s share of listeners seems to lean toward Soft Rock, Classic Rock and even Country, with three oldie or classic hit-themed stations and two country stations rounding out the city’s top 10.
Sports are also big in Denver, as sportscasters keep busy with coverage of four major Denver teams: the Denver Broncos (NFL), Colorado Rockies (MLB), Denver Nuggets (NBA) and the Colorado Avalanche (NHL). Notable people with ties to Denver include rock band The Fray, actors Tim Allen and AnnaSophia Robb, folk singer Judy Collins, film director David Fincher, TV personality Dog the Bounty Hunter, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, to name a few.
Denver’s radio market is alive and well, providing many potential learning opportunities for those who dream of a career as an on-air personality, radio DJ, program director, station manager or others. To make the most of those opportunities, you need to get connected to the industry in ways that most traditional broadcasting schools don’t offer. That’s where RADIO CONNECTION is different.
