So long CSB......!
One of the long standing technical schools for hopeful broadcasters has closed down.
CSB was founded by Dick Robinson, longtime Hartford DJ.
Without notice the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, with 26 locations closed down yesterday.

Is it me...or had the tuition gotten wayyyyy out of whack?
$12,000 for a 16 week course?
Dick Robinson claims the school will re-open at least in one location. Dick has a non-compete still in effect, but the school may be resurrected by his daughters who are not covered by a non-compete.
Here is more from the local paper in Connecticut:
