We’re the radio school alternative that gets you training on the inside, not some classroom.

Our radio school alternative is both cost-efficient and time effiecient and our training program is flexible with most schedules too.
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 ordinary 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-extern approach, we place you as an 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 broadcasting school alternative today, and let us get you on the path to your dreams of a career in radio.
