About the New Orleans Location Near Me

The best way to break into radio in the New Orleans area is to work as an extern in a New Orleans radio station. That’s where we come in.

Why spend 10-50 thousand dollars or more to learn radio broadcasting in a stale college or trade school classroom, when for a fraction of that amount we can teach you more effectively in a real broadcasting studio? The choice is clear: get on the inside track, and become part of the radio industry by training inside it. Our radio school alternative is the smartest, most cost-efficient program you will find anywhere.

Situated at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi River, the city of New Orleans is the largest city in Louisiana, with an urban population of nearly 350,000 people but anchoring a larger metro of just over 1 million. A city rich in history and heritage, New Orleans is world-renowned for its famed French Quarter, its Mardi Gras celebrations, and of course its musical legacy. Jazz, Dixieland and zydeco are commonly heard echoing through the streets, both from the street buskers and the local venues. The city is also noted for its pride in its NFL team the New Orleans Saints, whose 2009 Superbowl win provided a huge morale boost for residents still recovering from Hurricane Katrina a few years earlier.

Ranked by Arbitron as the nation’s #47 radio market, New Orleans is home to a variety of strong-signal radio stations, competing for market share in a diversity of formats. Whether your passion is to become a talk show host, radio DJ, programming director, sportscaster, newscaster or other radio professional, this city offers plenty of opportunities to learn, grow and connect within its radio industry.

The RADIO CONNECTION differs from other schools in that we don’t have any use for classrooms or simulated studios. We believe, as most industry pros do, that the best place to learn radio is in the heart of the industry itself. So through our innovative mentor-extern approach, combined with our many industry relationships formed over the years, we place you as an extern inside a real radio station. You are trained one-on-one by an industry professional with proven experience, and you gain plenty of on-the-job experience along the way. Best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with lots of other professionals, which greatly increases your chances for getting hired when job openings arise. Many of our graduates go on to successful industry careers, and you could be next. You owe it to yourself to discover what our New Orleans radio school can do for your future career.
