Discover How to Become a Radio DJ, Talk Show Host, or Sports Broadcaster
Your one-on-one training with BMG starts inside a real radio station - where radio careers begin.
Learning how to become a radio DJ, talk show host, or sports broadcaster in today's broadcasting industry is not easily navigated on your own. You need much more than a good voice and a burning desire to succeed.
You need a well thought out plan for getting your foot in the door.
What is your well thought out plan for turning your dream into reality for becoming a radio broadcaster? If you currently don't have a plan, then you'll need to come up with one. If you don't know how to come up with a plan, then read on.
Regardless of whether you're interested in learning how to become a radio DJ, talk show host, or sports broadcaster, your well thought out plan for breaking into broadcasting must include the following requirements:
- High quality training and education
- Contacts in broadcasting
- Dedication to your plan
- Determination to succeed
- Access to influential contacts
You'll need a source of access to the principal decision makers. Access to influential broadcasters, producers, and top executives. Only then will you be able to increase your chances for success.
Resumes and demo tapes ALONE don't work anymore. Whether your goal is to become a local DJ, nationally known talk show host, or sideline reporter at the Super Bowl - you need an advantage - an insider’s advantage...
BMG provides you with that insider’s advantage on day one by giving you access to the important broadcasting contacts you'll need to succeed.
You certainly can attempt to go it alone - a lot of people try, and meet with mixed results.
But you don't have to go it alone anymore.
There's a far more effective way available to maximize the radio broadcasting opportunities that surround you at this very minute.
It is to your advantage to seek out those who have gone before you in radio broadcasting and utilize their experience, knowledge, and contacts.
BMG has purposefully chosen the mentor-apprentice model for developing your broadcasting skills. That reason is simple - it works best, in more ways than one.
Mentoring from a working broadcaster provides you three critical components that traditional broadcasting schools and university communications programs aren't structured to provide you:
- Access to influential broadcast industry contacts
- Advantages that come from having industry contacts who know you
- One-on-one, hands-on training from a working industry pro
In truth, traditional broadcasting schools or university programs don't intend to shortchange you. They're just not set up to provide you access to real broadcasters, real contacts, real equipment ... in a real broadcasting environment.
No Need to Relocate or Quit Your Job
Regardless of where you live, BMG has a 'broadcasting school' near you - provided there's a radio station nearby. That's because your ‘classroom' is actually inside a state-of-the-art radio station. Your ‘professor' is a working radio DJ, talk show host, or sports broadcaster - employed by the radio station or local team of your choosing.
No crowded classes and boring classroom lectures and lessons, or training on outdated and useless equipment. No training in classrooms in far removed areas from where real radio broadcasting is conducted.
Instead, you're being trained by the best (they're working broadcasters and sportscasters, after all) - around the same equipment you'll need to master - and in the same environment you'll soon be working.
A brief overview of your BMG broadcasting training:
- You choose the station and/or team to train with
- You decide whether to train to become a radio DJ, talk show host, or sports broadcaster
- You choose your training days and times
- No experience required
Best of all, you'll be in a class of one - just you - receiving hands-on, one-on-one customized training from your broadcasting mentor-instructor.
How Your Broadcaster Training Works? It's Easy as 1 - 2 - 3
The process involved in pursuing your broadcaster training through BMG is fairly straightforward. Your training is customized with a quality mentor. Your training days and times are determined by you. You'll even choose the radio station and formats in which you'll train.
To get started, you'll want to:
- Identify what your goals for broadcasting are. Do you want to become a radio DJ, talk show host, newscaster or sports broadcaster? After all, if you don't know what your eventual destination looks like, how will you know if you've ever arrived?
- Closely examine the two primary training options below, and choose the best fit for your learning needs, schedule, and budget. A brief overview of those two training options are;
When you've decided which training program best meets your needs, you'll contact BMG to set up your no obligation, pre-screening interview. Here, you'll have any additional questions answered before deciding if we're a good fit for each other.
- The "Ultra Insider" Training program is a customized six-month broadcasting school apprenticeship training program served in a local radio station of your choosing. Best suited for those with little or no broadcasting experience.
- The "Supreme Insider" Training Program is a customized three-month broadcasting school apprenticeship training program in a local radio station of your choosing - at nearly half the cost. Best suited for those with prior broadcasting experience and looking to get back into the business.
BMG understands that our hands-on, one-on-one approach to instruction is not for everyone, however. Some people determine that they prefer a classroom and lecture environment. If that describes you, you may want to look into attending a traditional brick and mortar broadcasting school or college program within your community (if you're near a large city).
People are often skeptical when it comes to finding things on the Internet. There seems to be a certain, "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is" mentality. That's what everyone around me was saying when I first brought up training with your company. Maybe I'm a little naive but it worked out in my favor this time.
What floored me right from the start is that I explained what I wanted and you basically handed it to me on a silver platter, down to the exact station and the exact show.
My experience has been amazing so far and I only expect for things to get better. The best thing about your program is the connections it makes possible within the industry. I have met so many people at the radio station and all of them are behind me. I'm on my way to getting a job at the station and the ever-important "foot in the door" and I'm not even to Segment 3 yet!
I love the real radio experience. I love hearing things on-air that I've worked on in production. I can't imagine being stuck in a classroom and not having an experience as amazing as the one I've had so far.
