Los Angeles Radio Broadcasting School by Radio Connection

One of the best ways to break into the Los Angeles radio industry is to apprentice (extern) in a real Los Angeles radio station. Our on-the-job training approach gets your foot in the door.

Why waste 10-50 thousand dollars or more to attend radio school in the simulated facilities of a college or trade school, when you could learn more effectively in a real broadcasting studio for a fraction of the cost? Play it smart; learn directly from the people who make a living in this business, and get connected to the industry while you learn the ropes. Our radio school alternative gets you into the heart of the action, effectively and affordably.

Anchoring the second largest metropolitan area in the U.S. (with about 13 million people), Los Angeles, CA is also ranked the second largest DMA in both radio and television markets. The city is home to dozens of high-powered radio stations in a wide range of formats, including Rock, Country, Adult Contemporary, News/Talk, and much more. The area’s multiple major sports teams (including the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Anaheim Angels and Anaheim Ducks)–not to mention the many highly-ranked college teams–give area sportscasters plenty to talk about. Additionally, the area’s large Latino community is serviced by at least ten different Spanish-speaking stations.

If you want a career as a radio DJ, on-air talk show host, sportscaster, programming director, or other career in radio, you won’t find a city with more opportunities to grow and learn than Los Angeles. Why, then, would you waste those opportunities by sitting in a classroom where you can’t connect with anyone? By placing you in a real broadcast facility, the RADIO CONNECTION can plug you directly into the LA radio industry.

How do we do it? Through our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) approach and the many industry relationships we’ve forged over nearly three decades, we are able to place our students as working apprentices inside actual broadcasting facilities throughout Los Angeles (and in many other markets, as well). As a Radio Connection student, you’ll be paired with a real radio professional who will instruct you one-on-one in all aspects of the business–and you’ll be able to make powerful working relationships of your own, which gives you a solid advantage in the job market over graduates of other programs. Over 70 percent of our students get hired, and you could be next. Enroll in our Los Angeles radio school today, and let us help you get started on the path toward your dreams of a great career in radio.
