Our radio school is by far the most effective and cost-efficient radio broadcasting training program you’ll find anywhere.
Indiana’s state capital and largest city, Indianapolis is home to nearly 830,000 people, but the surrounding metro is home to over double that number. One of the nation’s fastest-growing metros, Indianapolis is currently the #40 radio market, and the #26 television market in America. A sports-heavy town, Indianapolis is perhaps most famous for auto racing as the home of the Indianapolis 500. It is also the seat of the NCAA, overseeing college sports teams around the nation, as well as home to the Indianapolis Colts (NFL) and the Indiana Pacers (NBA). Popular radio stations in the metro include WZPL (Top 40), WTTS (Rock), and WFMS (Country). Iconic late-night talk show host David Letterman got his start here, first on the radio, and then as a television weatherman.
Whether you dream of becoming a talk show host, radio DJ, technical engineer, programming director or news/sportscaster, Indianapolis affords a wide range of real-world opportunities to learn, grow and connect. The RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to this vibrant radio market in ways other radio schools cannot.
Our secret is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. With our program, you will not spend one day in a classroom; instead, you will be placed as a working apprentice (extern) inside a real radio broadcasting facility, and you will be trained and mentored one-on-one by a highly experienced radio professional.
