Successful radio careers begin from both WHAT you know, and WHO you know
Have you dreamed of ways to become a DJ, talk show host, sports broadcaster, or newscaster, but never knew exactly how it was best done? It begins by gaining the necessary broadcasting skills.
Turning your dream into reality is very possible, but take it from those who know.
You need more than luck.
You’ll also need more than just skills for radio broadcasting. The days when a snazzy demo tape and resume alone would open doors for you are long over.
In today’s world of radio broadcasting, you need passion, a strong work ethic, dedication, and the hardest of all ingredients to get – insider access and contacts.
Your Biggest Challenge To Becoming A Radio Broadcaster?
The biggest challenges all newcomers face when trying to launch their radio careers are trying to determine the best radio school to attend and how best to get your “foot in the door.” Having just broadcasting skills with no insider contacts, or insider contacts with few broadcasting skills, will do you little good.
You need both broadcasting skills and industry contacts in order to stand a fighting chance of ever realizing your dream of becoming a successful radio broadcaster.
It should be obvious why acquiring announcing skills are a must. You’re in the communications business, and proper communication skills are a large part of the job requirements. Not so obvious to some, however, is the importance of establishing influential insider contacts as soon as possible.
The reason is simple: Radio broadcasting is a competitive business. After all, who WOULDN’T want to get paid to play their favorite songs, discuss hot political topics, or announce sporting events for a living?
Some broadcasting jobs may literally have hundreds of applicants vying for one prized position. Many other broadcasting jobs never open up because they are filled from within – which is exactly where you will be as a BMG “Ultra-Insider.”
Your training occurs inside the radio station, or with a team’s play-by-play announcer.
Think about it. One positive recommendation to management about your broadcasting skills – from a trusted employee who is personally training you – is an advantage that few other candidates will enjoy when a broadcasting job becomes available.
Can you now see why having insider contacts is every bit as important as having solid broadcasting skills?
How to Develop Broadcasting Skills AND Insider Contacts
The first question you need to answer becomes “How can I develop my broadcasting announcing skills AND make insider contacts at the same time?”
If your answer is “college broadcasting,” think again. You’ll make contacts in college radio or TV, but few – or none – in the real world of broadcasting.
The same sad truth holds true for traditional broadcasting schools. The leap from the broadcasting school classroom to the broadcasting booth is one that you’ll have to navigate on your own, since they operate in two different worlds.
This is exactly why you need an advantage – an “Insider” advantage – which puts you on the fast track to broadcasting success.
Introducing the “Ultra-Insider” six month radio school training program which gives you that valuable insider advantage.
A Hands-on Radio Broadcasting School
Because of the hands-on training and on-the-job insider access you gain, you automatically become a broadcasting “Ultra-Insider.” It begins in a local radio station of your choosing. A broadcaster from that station will serve as your own personal mentor-instructor. With the BMG program, you’re able to get exactly the training situation you’re looking for.
- YOU choose the radio station or sports team to train with, from over 312 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
- YOU choose your training days and times
- YOU choose the format – music DJ, talk show hosting, newscasting, sports broadcasting, or audio production – based on your goals and interests.
- Most importantly, YOU don’t need to relocate!
What makes BMG different?
Most radio broadcasting schools teach you about broadcasting. At BMG, you’ll actually become a broadcaster by broadcasting your own Internet radio show from day one. Instead of meeting with instructors to grade boring workbook assignments, your BMG mentor-instructor will improve your actual broadcasting skills. Your mentor will be providing you with the very skills you need to be hired.
Real life in-station or team training: “It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know!”
In broadcasting, your biggest challenge is “getting your foot in the door” for your first job. To make that happen, you greatly benefit from any advantage that makes employers aware of who you are, and confident in your abilities. To get your “foot in the door,” though, you’ll need a sound strategy.
The “Ultra-Insider” Broadcaster Training program is your sound strategy. That’s because it provides you with personal access to influential broadcasters and principal decision-makers, even while you’re training.
