About the Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point Location Near Me
There’s no better way to launch a career in the Piedmont Triad radio market than to apprentice (extern) in one of the area’s high-quality radio stations–and that’s where we put you, from day one.
Other radio schools charge 10-50 thousand dollars or more to teach you radio broadcasting in a stale college or trade school classroom, or in a simulated studio. By contrast, we charge a fraction of that amount to train you in a real radio broadcasting studio. There’s no comparison! Play it smart, and learn the secrets of the radio business directly from the pros. Our radio school alternative is the most practical, most affordable and smartest way to break into the business.
Located in north-central North Carolina, the three cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point anchor what is known as the Piedmont Triad, a metro area of just under 1.6 million people. This area offers an interesting blend of manufacturing, agriculture and the arts, with textiles, furniture manufacturing and tobacco forming the backbone of its economy. Notable people with ties to the Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point area include poet Maya Angelou, actress Angela Bassett, musician Ben Folds, and author O. Henry, among many others.
The Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point area also has a surprising legacy in broadcast media, having been the home of such broadcasting legends as radio personality Rick Dees, sportscaster Howard Cosell, talk show host Barry Farber, and Salem Communications chairman Stuart Epperson.
