Rhode Island’s state capital and largest city, Providence is home to about 180,000 people, although the city itself anchors a much larger metropolis of about 1.7 million. Initially built upon industry, Providence relies largely on government jobs, education and manufacturing for its economy. A hub of culture, Providence is known as much for its fine arts and live theatre as it is for its underground music scene. Notable people hailing from this area include television personality/journalist Meredith Viera, actor/singer Nelson Eddy, and film composer Bill Conti, among others.
Providence, along with nearby communities Warwick and Pawtucket, collectively form the largest media market in southern New England, ranked by Arbitron as the nation’s 43rd largest radio market. Whether you are pursuing a radio career as a talk show host, sportscaster, technical engineer, radio DJ, programming director or related career, the Providence area offers many opportunities for you to grow, learn and connect. And the RADIO CONNECTION plugs you into these opportunities in ways other radio schools cannot.
Our industry advantage comes from our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we place you in a real radio station as a working apprentice (extern), and arrange for you to be taught and mentored one-on-one by a proven radio professional. With our program, all of your training occurs on-the-job; none of it happens in a stale classroom. In this way, not only do you receive the most effective training in radio you could get anywhere, but you also have the chance to form valuable industry connections, giving you a solid advantage when job openings occur.
