About the Hartford Location Near Me
In Hartford and vicinity, the best way to break into radio is to apprentice (extern) in a real Hartford radio station. That’s where we come in.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars on an expensive radio broadcasting training course in college or trade school, when we can educate you in a real radio station for a fraction of that amount. Get on the inside track by training in the heart of the action, making valuable connections while you learn the ropes. Our radio school alternative is the most practical, sensible, cost-efficient way to launch a radio career.
