About the Washington DC Location Near Me
What is the point of spending 10-50 thousand dollars or more to learn radio broadcasting in a college or trade school classroom, where you can gain neither valuable work experience nor job-producing industry connections? We can train you in a real radio broadcasting studio for a fraction of that amount. The choice is clear: get on the inside track, and gain the experience and connections you need by getting your education in the heart of the action. Compare us and see: our radio school alternative is by far the smartest, most cost-efficient training program on the market today.

I’ve been on air quite a bit, I was put on the air an hour after I met my mentor for a short interview. It was cool. It’s crazy how fast things happen in this business. No time for real school. This program puts you in the door. The rest is up to you.
