About the Memphis Location Near Me
There’s no better way to launch a radio career in Memphis than to apprentice (extern) in a Memphis radio station–and no better school than RADIO CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.
You could spend 10-50 thousand dollars to learn radio broadcasting inside an isolated college or trade school classroom–or you could learn in the heart of the action, in a real radio station, for a fraction of that amount. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, and make valuable connections while learning the business directly from the pros. Our radio school alternative is the smartest, most cost-effective way to launch a radio career.
Located in the southwest corner of Tennessee along the banks of the “Mighty Mississippi,” Memphis anchors a metropolitan area of about 1.3 million people, including residents across the borders of Mississippi and Arkansas. Perhaps the city’s most notable legacy is in music, being known as the “home of the blues” and the “birthplace of rock & roll”, home of Elvis Presley, Sun Records, and historic Beale Street. Memphis is also an involuntary player in the history of the Civil Rights Movement, remembered as the site where Martin Luther King was assassinated. (The famed Lorraine Motel stands today as part of the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.)
The Memphis metropolitan area is currently ranked by Arbitron as the #51 radio market in the U.S., with numerous high-powered radio stations competing for market share in formats ranging from Top-40 to Urban Contemporary to Classic Rock. Whether your dream is to become a radio DJ, talk show host, programming director or technical engineer, Memphis affords plenty of opportunities to connect to the industry while you learn and grow. Don’t waste those opportunities sitting in a college classroom when the RADIO CONNECTION can put you right where the action happens every day.
Our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) approach gives you the unprecedented opportunity to learn the radio business on-the-job as a working apprentice (extern).
