About the Honolulu Location Near Me
You could easily spend 10-50 thousand dollars to attend a radio broadcasting training program at a college or trade school, but why do that when we can train you in the heart of the action–in a real radio station–for a fraction of that amount? Make the smart choice for your career: learn radio from the pros who do it for a living, and get connected to the business by getting educated within it. Do your homework and see: our radio school is hands-down the smartest, most cost-efficient option on the market today.
While Arbitron ranks Honolulu as the 64th largest radio market in the U.S. (mainly due to Hawaii’s limited population), Honolulu is arguably the communication hub for the Hawaiian Islands, serving as the state capital and largest city, anchoring a metro area of almost a million people. As such, Honolulu is home to over 30 strong-signal stations, many of which can be received across the islands. While the typical News/Talk, Adult Contemporary and dance/hip-hop stations are certainly present, many of the stations predictably broadcast in several “island music” formats, such as Traditional Hawiian/folk and “Jawiian” (Hawaii’s version of reggae). Two of the more popular such stations are KQMQ-FM (93.1 Pa’ina) and KDNN-FM (Island 98.5). Areas of Hawaii outside the Honolulu signal range can also receive the signals from many of these stations via local digital cable.
If you want to become part of the Honolulu radio market as an on-air personality, DJ, station manager, program director, technician or other radio discipline, the best way to do that is to get directly involved with Honolulu radio, not through classroom study.
