About the San Francisco Location Near Me

San FranciscoOne of the best ways to break into radio in San Francisco is to extern in a real San Francisco radio station. That’s where we come in.

Why spend 10, 20, 30, or even 50 thousand dollars to attend radio school in a college or trade school classroom? We can put you in the heart of the action, in a real radio station, for a fraction of that amount. Get on the inside track, and get connected to the radio industry by learning from inside it. Our radio school can put you there affordably and effectively.

Arbitron ranks this area the nation’s fourth largest radio market, as demonstrated by the dozens of high-powered radio stations scattered across the area.
