In Virginia Beach-Norfolk and the Hampton Roads area, the best way to launch a radio career is to extern in a real Virginia Beach-Norfolk radio station. That’s where we come in.

Why spend upwards of 10-50 thousand dollars to “learn” radio broadcasting in an expensive college or trade school, when we can train you in a real radio station for a fraction of that amount? The choice is clear: get on the inside track by training in the heart of the action, learning the ropes from actual radio professionals. Compare us and see: our radio school alternative is the smartest, most cost effective program on the market today.

Located along the Virginia coast, the cities of Virginia Beach and Norfolk (along with Newport News) form what is known as the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, with a combined population of about 1.7 million people. Shipyards, numerous military bases and a thriving tourist industry (due to the area beaches and lots of historical sites) form the backbone of this area’s economy. Notable people from the Hampton Roads area include Bob Saget, Steve Earle, Ella Fitzgerald, Bruce Hornsby, Pat Robertson, Wanda Sykes and Timbaland, among others.

Keeping step with the needs of this metropolis, the Virginia Beach-Norfolk radio market ranks as the nation’s 44th largest, according to Arbitron. Whether you plan on becoming a radio DJ, talk show host, station manager, sportscaster, technical engineer or other radio professional, this radio market holds plenty of real-world learning opportunities. The RADIO CONNECTION can help you make the most of these opportunities where ordinary schools cannot.

Through our innovative mentor-extern approach, we bypass the classroom environment completely, placing you as a working extern in a real radio station from day one of your training. As you are trained one-on-one by a seasoned radio professional, you will gain plenty of valuable work experience on-the-job, and you’ll make plenty of industry connections which you could never make in a college or trade school classroom.
