In addition to the answer from Zack (which is great advice) I recommend seeking an internship at local radio stations (these are usually unpaid but you learn a lot and make important connections). Also, most universities have a local college radio station. Do everything you can to intern there and then hold a job there. This will get you not only experience but connections as well. Lastly, be sure to go to school to an area that you want to live in. Through internships and working at a college radio station you’ll make a ton of connections and most of these will be local. It will be the easiest to then find a job and get started in the industry if you then stay in that area after college.
