Orlando Radio Broadcasting School by Radio Connection

Be sure of this, the best way to get your start in radio in the Orlando market is to apprentice (extern) inside an Orlando radio station. That’s where we put you, from day one.

Why waste time and money (10-50 thousand dollars or more) to try and learn radio broadcasting in a college or trade school classroom, when we can train you in the heart of the action, in a real radio station, for far less money? Play it smart, get on the inside track, and get connected to the radio business by being trained inside it. Our radio school is the most practical, most cost-effective program you’ll find anywhere.

While the city of Orlando, Florida is home to a mere 238,000 people, the surrounding metropolitan area has a population exceeding 2 million. Dubbed the “Theme Park Capital of the World,” Orlando is known for its tourism industry, particularly for its theme parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Theme Park, and many, many others. Perhaps less known about Orlando is that in recent years it has become quite a hub for the entertainment industries. With Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Universal Studios both having a presence here, Orlando has become a hotspot for filmmaking, and the area’s vibrant music scene has produced such notable acts as Matchbox Twenty, Backstreet Boys and N*Sync.

Arbitron ranks Orlando as the nation’s 35th largest radio market, with dozens of high-powered radio stations competing for market share. Whether your dream is to be a talk show host, radio DJ, programming director, sportscaster or other radio professional, you’ll find plenty of real-world learning and growth opportunities in the Orlando radio market–and the RADIO CONNECTION can connect you to this market in ways no other school can.

With our innovative mentor-apprentice (extern) teaching approach, coupled with many industry relationships we’ve forged over nearly three decades, we are able to place you in a real radio station for personalized, one-on-one instruction on the job with a successful radio professional, someone who knows the business inside and out. Our pledge to you is that with our program, you won’t spend a single day in a classroom; instead, as you go to class on-the-job, you’ll gain valuable work experience and make vital industry connections that you could never gain in a classroom. As a result of this direct industry contact, over 70 percent of our graduates go on to successful industry careers.
