About the Kansas City Location Near Me

In Kansas City, Missouri, there’s no better way to get started in radio than to extern in a Kansas City radio facility–and not better school than RADIO CONNECTION to put you there.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars to study radio broadcasting in some college or trade school classroom when we can train you in a real radio station for a fraction of that amount. Play it smart, get on the inside track, and learn the ins and outs of radio broadcasting directly from the pros. Our radio school alternative is by far the most sensible, affordable and effective training program you will find anywhere.

To APPLY for our Kansas City Radio School, click here.

Located in America’s heartland at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers along Missouri’s western border, Kansas City anchors a sizable metro of just over 2 million people. Historically known for its blues, jazz and barbecue, Kansas City has also produced a surprising number of celebrities and notable figures, including jazz legends Count Basie and Charlie Parker, actor Ed Asner, filmmaker Robert Altman, composer Burt Bacharach, singer Janelle Monae, and the legendary news anchor Walter Cronkite, just to name a few. Kansas City is home to two major sports teams, the Kansas City Chiefs (NFL football) and the Kansas City Royals (MLB baseball).

Arbitron ranks the Kansas City metro as the 33rd largest radio market in the U.S., with dozens of high-powered radio stations blanketing the area and competing for market share. If you have a desire to become a radio DJ, sportscaster, programming director, station manager, technical engineer, talk show host or related radio professional, you’ll find plenty of opportunities in Kansas City to learn, grow and connect.

With all that the Kansas City radio market has to offer, why waste these opportunities by sitting in an isolated classroom? Through our innovative mentor-extern approach, the RADIO CONNECTION trains you by placing you as an extern in a real radio broadcasting studio, where you are mentored and trained one-on-one by a radio professional with a proven track record of experience. As you gain valuable on-the-job experience through the day-to-day activities of the station, you’ll also make important industry connections that can lead to future work. In fact, over time, many of our students have gone on to successful careers, and many are hired by the stations where they served their externship s. Why wait? Enroll in our Kansas City radio school today, and let us get you on the job as soon as possible.
