About the Las Vegas Location Near Me
In Las Vegas, the best way to break into radio is to work as an apprentice (extern) in a Las Vegas radio facility. We’re the school that makes that happen for you.
You could spend 10-50 thousand dollars-plus to learn radio broadcasting in some college or trade school; or you could pay a fraction of that amount and learn directly from the pros in the heart of the action, in a real radio station. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track and get connected to the radio industry while you get your education.
Our radio school is the most sensible, smartest, most cost-efficient program on the market today.
Known the world over for its gaming industry (centered in the famed Las Vegas Strip), Las Vegas has garnered such nicknames as “Sin City” and the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” Millions of tourists from all over the world descend upon Las Vegas each year, not only for the gambling, but also for the many world-class shows, both musical and theatrical. Vegas has predictably been linked to many names in the entertainment industry, as icons like Sammy Davis, Jr., Celine Dion, Elvis, Cher and many others have set up long-running shows here. Las Vegas also has a thriving indie-rock music scene which has spawned such notable bands as The Killers and Imagine Dragons.
Hosting a metro population of nearly 2 million people, Las Vegas is ranked by Arbitron as the 32nd largest radio market in America, with over 40 strong signal stations blanketing the area in formats such as News/Talk, Urban Contemporary, Rock, Top-40 and many others. If you want to break into radio and become a newscaster, talk show host, radio DJ, technical engineer or programming director, there are plenty of real-world learning opportunities in Las Vegas. The RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to these opportunities like no other school can.
The professionals in this industry agree that it’s far better to learn radio broadcasting on-the-job in real radio stations, as opposed to learning in a classroom or studio simulation. Our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) approach takes this to heart, to the point that with our program you will not spend a single day in a classroom. Instead, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) inside a real radio facility, where an established professional trains you one-on-one. In this setting, you’ll gain more work experience and make more industry connections than you ever could in a college or trade school classroom.
Does our program work? Just as the more than 70 percent of our graduates who have gone on to successful industry careers. You owe it to yourself to see what our Las Vegas radio school can do for you.
