About the San Jose Location Near Me

Make no mistake–one of the best ways to break into radio in the San Jose radio market is to extern in a real San Jose radio station. That’s where we come in.

What would be the point of spending 10-50 thousand dollars to study radio broadcasting in a classroom, when we can train you in a real radio station for less? Make the smart move for your future career by training on-the-job, and get connected to the radio industry by learning the ropes from the inside. Our radio school alternative can get you into the heart of the action.

Situated in the Santa Clara Valley at the southern end of San Francisco Bay, the city of San Jose is part of the sprawling San Francisco Bay Area metropolis, which is home to nearly 8 million people. With a population of nearly one million on its own, San Jose is actually the largest city in northern California, exceeding the population of San Francisco itself–prompting Arbitron to rank San Jose as its own separate radio market apart from San Francisco, although the two cities are less than 50 miles apart. As a result, residents of the Bay Area benefit from bleedover signals from two major radio markets, with several dozen strong-signal stations competing for market share.

Interestingly, San Jose has a notable legacy in the history of radio itself, having been the site of the world’s very first radio station. The station, which began as “Station FN” in San Jose, continues to broadcast from San Francisco today as KCBS.

Whether you desire to be a radio DJ, newscaster, sportscaster, talk show host, programming director or technical engineer, the San Jose radio market obviously holds plenty of opportunities for you to learn, grow and connect. And the RADIO CONNECTION can help you make the most of those opportunities.

Our secret is our mentor-extern learning approach. We know the best way for you to break into radio is to learn the ropes on-the-job, so that’s where we put you from day one. As a student in our radio training program, you’ll be placed as an extern inside a real radio broadcasting facility, and you’ll be trained personally, one-on-one, by a radio professional with years of experience. In this way, not only will you get a solid practical education, but you’ll also gain valuable work experience and make important industry connections that you could never get in a classroom.

Does our program work? Enroll in our San Jose radio school alternative today, and you could be one of these success stories in as little as six months.
