About the Hartford Location Near Me

In Hartford and vicinity, the best way to break into radio is to 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.

The state capital of Connecticut, Hartford is home to just under 125,000 people, although the surrounding metropolitan communities have a combined population of over 1 million. Dubbed the “Insurance Capital of the World,” Hartford has for many years relied economically on the insurance business, with many national companies headquartering here. Hartford also hails as one of the oldest cities in the nation, with plenty of historical landmarks and buildings commemorating a history spanning four centuries. Notable people with ties to Hartford include actors Katherine Hepburn and Linda Evans; television producer Norman Lear; the Pocaro Brothers (of the band Toto); and legendary authors Mark Twain and Harriett Beecher Stowe.

Together with neighboring communities New Britain and Middletown, Hartford is ranked the #52 radio market in the United States, according to Arbitron, with numerous radio stations broadcasting across the area in a variety of formats. If you want to become a radio DJ, programming director, station manager, talk show host, newscaster or other radio professional, you’ll find plenty of real-world learning opportunities in this area–and the RADIO CONNECTION can help you make the most of these opportunities where other schools cannot.

Our secret is our mentor-extern approach. Never mind training in a classroom; with our program, you will not spend a single day in that setting. Instead, we put you into a real radio station as an extern, learning one-on-one from an established radio professional. This gives you unprecedented access to the industry itself, giving you the chance to gain experience and industry connections you couldn’t get at any other school. Thanks to our on-the-job approach, many of our graduates get hired, many by the very studios where they did their externships. Enroll in our Hartford radio school today, and you could be next.
