About the San Diego Location Near Me

San DiegoMany industry experts believe that one of the best ways to break into the radio business is to work inside a real radio station. In San Diego, a RADIO CONNECTION externship can help you do just that.

Don’t be fooled: learning radio broadcasting in a college or trade school classroom-based program will cost you 10-50 thousand dollars or more! Why go to that expense when we can train you inside an actual radio broadcasting studio for a fraction of that amount? Get connected to the radio industry by learning the ropes from the inside. Our radio school alternative gets you in the door effectively and affordably.

Located two hours down the California coast from Los Angeles, the moderate weather and beautiful scenery of San Diego have attracted a population of over 1.3 million people, and a surrounding metro population of 2 million more. For this reason, Arbitron categorizes San Diego as the 17th largest radio market nationwide (not including listeners across the border in Mexico), making it an ideal learning ground for radio students who prefer lots of opportunities in a slightly smaller market than Los Angeles, San Diego’s neighbor to the north. Dozens of high-powered radio stations blanket the area with formats that include Adult Contemporary, Urban, Top-40, News/Talk, Classic Rock, Adult Album Alternative, and numerous Spanish-speaking stations accommodating the region’s large Latino population.

Area sportscasters have plenty to talk about in San Diego, with coverage of the San Diego Chargers (football), San Diego Padres (baseball), and lots of area college sports teams. Notable people and celebrities with ties to San Diego include Ted Danson, Cameron Diaz, Gregory Peck, Eddie Vedder, Jewel, Ray Kroc, Mario Lopez, and the bands Switchfoot and blink-182, among others.

Whether your passion is to become a radio DJ, talk show host, newscaster, programming director, technical engineer or other radio professional, San Diego provides a great number of real-world learning opportunities. The RADIO CONNECTION helps you make the most of these opportunities by placing you as an extern inside a real radio facility, where you are trained one-on-one by a seasoned radio professional. This gives you the ability to gain valuable on-the-job experience, as well as make important industry connections–both of which are critical to giving you an advantage in the job market. Many of our graduates get hired, and you could be next. Enroll in our San Diego radio school today, and discover what we can do for your career.
