BSMG is the only nationwide broadcasting mentorship program that connects you with local broadcasting professionals

Hello, and thank you for stopping by to learn more about BSMG.

BSMG was intentionally structured with the purpose of providing students the most
direct and realistic pathway into the broadcasting industry. This was done by developing
a mentor- apprentice model for learning, in which students learn directly from
professional broadcasters inside real radio stations, instead of using a traditional
classroom/lecture model for learning.

Founded by former business, medical, and sports talk host, Michael Madden, BSMG’s
headquarters are located in Calabasas, CA. For nearly two decades, our students have
trained to become radio DJs, sports broadcasters, talk-show hosts, newscasters,
podcasters, and voiceover artists.

Truth be told, BSMG is better suited for the type of student who learns best in a hands-
on, one-on-one learning environment. Because our students are trained by local
broadcasters from nearby radio stations to them, BSMGs broadcasting school operates
in every state and city throughout the US and Canada.

No relocation is necessary in order to be mentored by a professional working
broadcaster from a radio station near you.

Because I realize this is an important decision for you or a loved one to make, please
feel free to call my office at 818-879-0858 and set up a time for us to talk, or you can
email me directly at your convenience on my personal email at
mm@broadcastingschool.com.
