About the Sacramento Location Near Me
In Sacramento, one of the most effective ways to get your foot in the door of the radio market than to apprentice (extern) in a Sacramento radio station. That’s where we come in.
Why spend upwards of 30-50 thousand dollars to learn radio broadcasting in a college or trade school classroom, when you could literally learn the ropes on-the-job in a real radio station for a fraction of that amount? The choice is clear: get on the inside track, and learn radio directly from the pros while you make industry connections. Our radio school puts you in the heart of the action.
The state capital of California, the city of Sacramento is home to nearly half a million people, and anchors a surrounding metro area of 2 million others. Arbitron ranks Sacramento as the 27th largest radio market in the United States, with over 30 strong-signal stations broadcasting across the area. While many different formats are represented (including rock, country, oldies, Hispanic, jazz and others), news/talk and adult contemporary tend to compete for the lion’s share of the market. KFBK, the area’s largest news/talk station, broadcasts on both AM and FM frequencies, while KMYX (Mix 96) plays popular hits from yesterday and today.
Whether your goal is to be a radio DJ, talk show host, or sportscaster–or whether you prefer to work behind the scenes as a program director, station manager or technical engineer–Sacramento’s radio industry provides plenty of real-world learning opportunities. And The Sacramento RADIO CONNECTION helps you take advantage of those opportunities.
Through our many industry relationships forged over nearly 3 decades, we bypass the classroom completely, placing you from day one as a working apprentice (extern) inside a real radio broadcasting facility. All your training occurs on-the-job, one-on-one with an experienced radio pro, combining our structured curriculum with plenty of hands-on experience. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to meet and connect with plenty of other industry professionals, which gives you a strong advantage when job openings arise. Over 70 percent of our students get hired in the industry, some even before they graduate. You owe it to yourself to see what our Sacramento radio school can do for your career.
