About the Philadelphia Location Near Me
Make no mistake–the best way to break into radio in Philadelphia as a DJ, on-air personality, station manager or programming director is to connect to the industry directly by working as an apprentice (extern) in a real station or studio. That’s where we come in.
Don’t be fooled into spending up to 50 thousand dollars or more to go to a broadcasting program at a college or trade school, when we can train you in a real radio broadcasting studio for a fraction of that amount. Make the smart choice for your career: learn directly from broadcasting professionals and get connected to the radio industry while you get your education. Our radio school alternative is hands-down the most effective and cost-efficient program you’ll find anywhere.
Ranked the nation’s eighth largest radio market by Arbitron, Philadelphia is home to about 1.5 million people, but anchors a surrounding metro area of over 5 million. As such, the area is home to over 30 strong-signal AM and FM radio stations, with dozens more broadcasting with lesser signal strength. Popular radio formats here include Rock, Top 40, Talk, Gospel, Classical, Oldies, Country, Adult Contemporary and more. Of course, serving as home to national sports franchises in baseball (Phillies), football (Eagles), basketball (Ô76ers) and hockey (Flyers), the sports talk market is also quite large here.
Needless to say, Philadelphia offers plenty of opportunities for real-world learning experiences in the radio market. The only way to connect to these opportunities is to learn in a real broadcasting studio–and the RADIO CONNECTION can put you there where other schools cannot.
The secret to our success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. Forget about classrooms and campus studios; you won’t find them in our program. Instead, we place you from day one as a working apprentice (extern) in a real radio broadcasting facility, where a successful, experienced radio professional trains you one-on-one. As you work through our structured curriculum, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for hands-on broadcasting experience in the station, and you’ll also make plenty of connections with others in the radio industry, giving you a distinct advantage in the job market.
