Houston Radio Broadcasting School by Radio Connection
Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars or more to attend a radio broadcasting school in a college or trade school, when for a fraction of that amount we can train you in a real radio station. Get on the inside track, and get connected to the radio industry by getting educated within it. No one teaches you the ropes more effectively or affordably than our radio school alternative.
Located in south Texas near the Gulf of Mexico, the city of Houston is home to over 2 million people, anchoring an even larger surrounding metro area of over 6 million. An international port city, Houston was built on oil and energy, industries which continue to drive the city’s economy today. Also, as an international hub of commerce, Houston has a surprisingly international vibe for a city in the deep south, boasting over a million inhabitants not native to the U.S. Houston is a major hub for NASA, home to the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center (remember the now-famous line from Apollo 13: “Houston, we have a problem”?), which draws thousands of tourists per year. Houston is also home to three major sports teams: the Houston Astros (MLB), Houston Texans (NFL) and the Houston Rockets (NBA).
Not surprisingly, Arbitron ranks Houston as the 6th largest radio market in the U.S. (including nearby Galveston), with dozens of high-powered stations competing for market share. This city provides plenty of real-world learning opportunities for future on-air personalities, sportscasters, station managers, programming directors and other radio professionals. RADIO CONNECTION can help you make the most of these real-world opportunities where other schools cannot.
Our “secret weapon” is found in our name: connections. Thanks to our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) learning approach, we are able to place you as an apprentice (extern) in a real radio broadcasting facility for private, one-on-one instruction from a professional who knows the business inside and out. With our program, you won’t spend a single day in a college or trade school classroom; instead, your entire course takes place on-the-job, where you can gain valuable work experience and make vital industry connections while you are studying–connections which usually lead to jobs.
Does our program work? Just ask the more than 70 percent of our students who now hold successful jobs in the industry. You owe it to yourself to see what our Houston radio school can do for your career.
