About the Oklahoma City Location Near Me

The best way to break into radio in Oklahoma City is to extern in an area radio station–and we are the school that puts you there.

Play it smart, get on the inside track, and get connected to the industry by getting your education on-the-job. Our radio school is hands-down the most effective and cost-efficient way to get an education and launch a career in radio.

Oklahoma’s state capital and largest city, Oklahoma City proper is home to about 580,000 people, but anchors a broader metro area of over 1.2 million. Included in this metropolitan area is Tinker Air Force Base just south of the city, as well as the sprawling University of Oklahoma in nearby Norman, both of which contribute greatly to the area’s economy (along with staple industries such as energy and technology). Since the oil bust of the 1980s, downtown Oklahoma City has seen a resurgence in redevelopment–especially in places like the Bricktown area (complete with its own river walk), which has become a popular place for shopping and dining. Notable people with ties to OKC include country icon Vince Gill, actors Lon Cheney and Kay Francis, and MLB Hall-of-Famer Johnny Bench, among others.

Oklahoma City also has a legacy in media, particularly in radio. OKC was the site of the first radio station west of the Mississippi (and the third in the nation). First established in the 1920s, WKY still broadcasts today in a Spanish-speaking format, retaining its original call letters even though stations west of the Mississippi today begin with the letter “K” rather than “W”. Oklahoma City is also the birthplace for radio legend Ted Quillin, one of the noted “Seven Swingin’ Gentlemen” credited with introducing the Hollywood radio market to rock & roll.

Today, Oklahoma City is home to dozens of high-powered radio stations competing for market share in a variety of formats. Whether you dream of becoming a talk show host, radio DJ, station manager or programming director, the OKC market provides plenty of real-world learning opportunities. The RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to these opportunities in ways other schools can’t. Our innovative mentor-extern approach places you as an extern inside an actual radio station, where a working radio professional serves as your personal instructor and mentor. This on-site training gives you unprecedented access to the industry itself, enabling you to gain valuable work experience and make important connections while you are learning the ropes.

Our results speak for themselves: many of our graduates get hired in the industry, many by the same places where they externd. You owe it to yourself to find out what our Oklahoma City radio school can do for your career.
