About the Houston Location Near Me
There is no better way to launch a radio career in Houston than to apprentice (extern) in a Houston radio facility. Radio Connection puts you in prime position to learn the skills and practices, and make industry connections that can lead to job offers.
Radio broadcasting schools in colleges or trade schools can cost 15-50 thousand dollars. For a fraction of that amount, Radio Connection can partner you as an apprentice (extern) to a working radio professional with years of valuable broadcasting experience. For us and our many graduates, getting trained while also getting connected to the radio industry makes more sense. Learn the ropes in an effectively and affordably with 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).
The Radio Connection for Radio Broadcasting program can help you make the most of the real-world opportunities. Conventional radio schools operate within school campuses and the better programs might even have a school radio show if you’re lucky. Radio Connection goes about it all differently. We get you training from inside the industry, not outside of it.
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 that often 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.
