New York City is America’s largest city, home to over 8 million people and anchoring a sprawling outlying metro area of nearly 19 million across several states. Not only is NYC the Number 1 ranked radio market in the country according to Arbitron, but it is also one of the most influential markets, as well. New York’s noted “shock jocks” are often syndicated across the country, and New York radio legend Edward R. Murrow’s reporting on the events of WWII had a huge impact upon American journalism in general.

Among the dozens of high-powered stations in the Big Apple are a few interesting standouts. While the metro radio stations offer a wide range of popular formats, the most listened-to station in Manhattan is a public radio station, WNYC, offering a news/culture format and numerous nationally syndicated programs. NYC is also home to the largest indie radio station in the U.S. (WFMU), the highest ranked hip-hop station (WQHT), the most noteworthy conservative talk radio station (WABC), and one of the few socialist stations in America (WBAI).
Whether you dream of being an on-air personality, radio DJ, news/sportscaster, station manager, engineer, or program director, you won’t find a city with more opportunities to learn and connect than New York. And the RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to those opportunities in ways no other school can.

Forget about the classroom–you don’t need it, and you won’t find it in our program.

Progress Reports

Checking in on our New York Radio Students who are learning broadcasting where they live in places like New York City.

Megan Barham, New York, NY

Report One

I met with my mentor at the Power 105.1 station in NYC from 5-6PM and was once again able to sit-in on and observe the last hour of his afternoon show. I was able to help him screen some calls and learned how to edit them to be played on the air. I also spoke to callers who were concert ticket contest winners and acted as my mentor’s phone producer, explaining the rules and details of their prize and taking down all of the winner’s personal information for the Promotions Department. Finally, I compared the advertisement logs to when they played/were supposed to play on air, and checked them off for accuracy. Im actually in a real radio station learning from a professional.

Report Two

On Saturday, December 13, I met with Chuck at the Power 105.1 station in NYC from 5-6PM. I observed his show and was able to help operate the board, check the commercial logs, and obtain station readings for the engineers. I am currently working on the Chapter on PSA’s and the corresponding assignment in the Coursebook. I am in the door and working with a world famous DJ.

Sal Traina , New York, NY

I did commercial reading practice, and learned about recording equipment. I’m getting about 10-12 hours a week in the station. My mentor is a real radio professional and I am learning directly from him.
