For those who couldn’t gain admission to Syracuse or be born with the last name Buck or Caray, there were other paths to a career in sports broadcasting. One such avenue might no longer available after Tuesday’s sudden closing of the Connecticut School Of Broadcasting.  From the Hartford Courant :

The Connecticut School of Broadcasting, with locations nationwide, has shut down without warning.

Students at the Farmington location say they found out by text message Wednesday night while others showing up for class found the doors locked.

Students say they paid $12,000 for a sixteen week course and graduation had been set for next week.

The school was founded in Connecticut in 1964 by a Hartford broadcaster. The family that started the school has told WTNH-TV it has begun the process to reopen the school so students can graduate.
