Your career in radio broadcasting starts inside a real radio station near you in Michigan
Since you’re looking for radio broadcasting schools in Michigan, you would be wise to know your options before making an informed decision about what the best fit may be for you to start your career in radio broadcasting.
There are traditional brick and mortar radio broadcasting schools, and there is a hands-on, apprenticeship radio broadcasting program – one in which you get to work one-on-one with a live, professional radio broadcaster at an area radio station of your choice.
What are traditional brick and mortar radio broadcasting schools in Michigan?
Typically, brick and mortar radio broadcasting schools are held in stand-alone buildings, far removed from the real broadcasting industry. Meaning, you’ll either have to commute regularly to a large city in Michigan that has a radio broadcasting school, which may or may not be convenient, or you’ll have to relocate to a large city in Michigan.
If neither option is available, your career in radio broadcasting may have to be put on hold.
However, if you prefer what the traditional classroom learning experience offers – attending lectures and taking lots of notes – then it could be that brick and mortar radio broadcasting schools in Michigan are for you.
The possible downside to this option is you’d have to organize your personal and work routines around a set classroom schedule. You might even have to quit a current job.
The apprenticeship model of radio broadcasting schools in Michigan
You know yourself best. If you’re a one-on-one learner, you’ll certainly benefit from another kind of radio broadcasting school in Michigan – the apprenticeship model – offered by our award-winning Broadcasters Mentoring Group. How does it work?
Instead of sitting you in a classroom with other students, we pair you with a live, professional broadcaster in Michigan who will train you right at the radio station of your choice.
In fact, broadcasting apprenticeships essentially ARE broadcasting schools. The radio station of your choice in Michigan becomes your radio broadcasting school classroom. So regardless of where you live, your radio career begins immediately!
And did we tell you that, in addition to training one-on-one at your favorite local radio station, you’re also developing influential contacts in the radio broadcasting industry from day one? Studies show that more than six of every 10 new radio hires happen through insider contacts.
Here are just a few ways you benefit from BMG’s apprenticeship program:
- Every local radio station is a possible radio broadcasting school in Michigan for you. We contract out with as many stations in each city as possible.
- Your favorite radio station in Michigan becomes a potential broadcasting school for you.
- You set your training program around your individual interests and schedule.
- You train in person, one-on-one, with a real, hands-on working professional broadcaster.
- You create your very own flexible training schedule.
- You establish a network of influential contacts in the radio industry from day one.
- You’re positioned to receive insider information about available jobs in the broadcasting industry.
- Your training is affordable. Though we currently do not offer government-sponsored financial aid, financing is available.
- Your training starts when you’re ready to begin. This is because our program isn’t set up on a semester basis, like colleges. So instead of waiting for the next semester to begin, your training starts whenever you’re ready.
How our radio broadcasting apprenticeship program in Michigan works:
- You select your radio station, training days, and times. Then, we pair you with a live professional working broadcaster within that station, to be your mentor-instructor.
- Whatever your particular interests and schedule is, we’ll customize your training to fit. For instance, if you’re interested in learning how to be a sports broadcaster, a talk show host, radio DJ, or a newscaster, we’ll customize your training program around what you want to learn.
- You focus your learning experience to your specific broadcasting interests, minus information you don’t need, such as studio engineering, that is included in traditional programs.
A final word: we encourage you to compare our program with all other radio broadcasting schools in Michigan. That’s because the strategy you choose to follow right from the beginning will very likely determine your success as a radio broadcaster.
Please, by all means, compare prices, three and six-month training programs, and job placement assistance guarantees with other Michigan schools. We’re confident that no other radio broadcasting schools in Michigan will quickly get you through the door and into the seat of an actual radio broadcaster as effectively and affordably as BMG.
