About the Port Charlotte Location Near Me

There’s no better way to break into radio in Port Charlotte than to get into a real Port Charlotte radio station as an extern. We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.

You could easily spend 10-50 thousand dollars to go to radio school inside a college or trade school classroom–or you could spend a fraction of that amount and learn the ins and outs of radio broadcasting inside a real studio. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, learn directly from the pros, and make valuable industry connections while you get your education. Compare us and see: our radio school alternative is the most effective and cost-efficient way to break into a radio career.

Port Charlotte is a west-Florida community of about 46,000 people situated along I-75 between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. Between Port Charlotte and nearby Punta Gorda, the area is home to several strong-signal radio stations, broadcasting in formats that include News/Talk, Country, Top-40, Religious and others. Port Charlotte also receives a variety of signals from nearby Sarasota, Ft. Myers and other communities, allowing for a diversity of radio signals across the dial beyond what you would expect from a small town.

Although not the largest radio market in the region, Port Charlotte affords easy access to larger markets such as Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Tampa and others. If you desire to become a radio DJ, talk show host, sportscaster or programming director, but prefer the small-town feel to the busy urban vibe, Port Charlotte offers a surprising amount of real-world learning opportunity.

Our advantage over other radio schools is our mentor-extern approach. Forget about classrooms and simulated studios–you won’t find them in our program. Instead, we train you in the “real world” by placing you as an extern in an actual radio broadcasting facility, pairing you with a seasoned radio professional who knows how the business really works. Not only will you gain an unprecedented amount of work experience with our approach, but you’ll also form valuable relationships within the industry–connections that give you a solid advantage in the job market. Enroll in our Port Charlotte radio school today, and discover why many of our graduates get hired.
