About the Detroit Location Near Me
We place you as a working radio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Detroit radio broadcasting studio, where you learn the ins and outs of broadcasting from a working professional. In Detroit, the best way to break into radio is to apprentice (extern) in a real Detroit broadcasting facility. We can get your foot in the door like no other school can.
Why spend 10-50 thousand dollars to attend a traditional radio school at a college or trade school, when for a fraction of that amount we can get you into a real radio station for personalized instruction from the pros? Make the smart choice for your career, and get connected to the business while you get your education on-the-job. Our radio school alternative is by far the most effective and affordable radio training option on the market today.
Michigan’s largest city, Detroit anchors a metro area of over 4 million people. While Arbitron ranks Detroit as the Number 12 radio market in the U.S., this ranking does not account for the large Canadian audience across the border. Over 50 radio stations with significant signal strength can be received across the Detroit metro, with Urban Contemporary being the most popular format among them–reflecting the city’s musical heritage going back to the days of Motown. Other popular stations in the area broadcast Jazz, Adult Contemporary, News/Talk, Classic Rock and other formats.
Whether your interest in radio is an on-the-mic position as a newscaster, radio DJ or talk show host, or a behind-the-scenes job as a technician, programming director or station manager, the best way to launch your career is not just to get an education in radio, but also to get connected to the industry. RADIO CONNECTION can help you do both by putting you in the heart of the action–something other schools just can’t do.
Our secret is our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. Forget about classroom-based learning–you won’t find it in our program. Instead, we place you from day one as an apprentice (extern) in a Detroit radio broadcasting facility, where all your training is conducted privately, on-the-job, and one-on-one by a successful radio professional. As you learn the ropes through hands-on experience in the studio, you’ll also make plenty of industry connections that can give you a strong advantage in the job market when openings arise.
