About the Milwaukee Location Near Me
The best way to break into radio in the Milwaukee radio market is to work in a real Milwaukee radio station–and that’s where we put you, from day one.
Don’t waste 10-50 thousand dollars or more to attend a radio broadcasting course in a stale college or trade school classroom; we can train you in the heart of the action, in a real radio broadcasting studio, for far less money. Play it smart: get on the inside track, and learn the radio industry directly from the pros, making valuable connections along the way. Our radio school alternative is the most practical and cost-efficient way to launch a successful radio career.
Located along the western shores of Lake Michigan in the southeast corner of Wisconsin, the city of Milwaukee is home to about 600,000 people but anchors a surrounding metro of 1.7 million. Thanks in part to its large contingency of German immigrants in the nineteenth century, Milwaukee was largely built around the beer industry, and while only one major brewer remains in business here, brewing is forever attached to Milwaukee’s legacy–as evidenced by names such as Miller Field, Pabst Theater, and the city’s Major League Baseball team, the Milwaukee Brewers. Notable people with roots in Milwaukee include Les Paul, Liberace, Al Jarreau, Heather Graham, Bob Uecker, and Spencer Tracy, among others.
Together with nearby Racine, Milwaukee is ranked by Arbitron as the nation’s #38 radio market, with over three dozen strong-signal stations broadcasting over the area in a variety of formats. Whether your goal is to become a radio DJ, sportscaster, programming director, technical engineer, on-air talk show host or other radio professional, Milwaukee holds plenty of opportunities to connect to the industry. The RADIO CONNECTION can help you take advantage of these opportunities where other radio schools can’t.
What is our secret? Through our innovative mentor-student approach, combined with our many industry relationships forged over the years, we are able to place you as a student inside a real radio station, to be trained one-on-one by a working radio pro with years of experience. All your training occurs on-the-job; none of it occurs in a classroom. In this way, you get a highly effective and practical education, plenty of valuable work experience, and the chance to form lots of industry relationships with other radio insiders–thereby giving you a solid edge in the job market when openings occur.
