About the Raleigh / Durham Location Near Me
There’s no better way to break into the Raleigh-Durham radio market than to apprentice (extern) in a radio station in the Raleigh-Durham area. We’re the school that puts you there.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars or more to study radio broadcasting at an expensive college or trade school, when we can train you in the heart of the action, in a real radio facility, for far less money. Get on the inside track, and make valuable industry connections while learning the ropes from within the industry itself. Our radio school is the smartest, most cost-efficient training program on the market today.
Located in central North Carolina in the Piedmont region, the cities of Raleigh and Durham anchor a metropolitan area of over a million inhabitants. They also form two parts of what is known as the “Research Triangle” (Chapel Hill forming the third), named in part because of three large research universities: Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State. Predictably, education and research are a significant part of the area’s economy, not just from the schools themselves, but also from a large research park that serves as home to a number of technology and bio-tech research facilities.
The Raleigh-Durham area is ranked as the 24th largest DMA for television, and the 42nd largest radio market as ranked by Arbitron. Whether your interest in radio is as a radio DJ, talk show host, sportscaster, station manager, programming director or other career, this area offers much in the way of real-world learning opportunities. And while most other radio schools simply train you in classrooms, the RADIO CONNECTION actually connects you to the real-world opportunities this area provides.
How do we do it? Through our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, we place you as an apprentice (extern) inside a real radio broadcasting facility, pairing you with a seasoned radio professional who trains you on-the-job with one-on-one instruction and mentoring. This means that with our program, you spend 100 percent of your class time on-the job, and not a single day stuck in a classroom. We have found this to be the most effective way by far to help our students become part of the radio industry, rather than just learning about it. Our results speak for themselves: over 70 percent of our students get hired, some even before they graduate! Why wait? Enroll in our Raleigh-Durham radio school today, and let us get you on the path to your dreams of a career in radio.
