How do I get a job at a TV, radio or news station?

Im interesting in pursing a job at a TV, radio or a news station. I currently have a job as a warehouse worker and Im so sick of it. In the meantime, I studying to get my CCNA (in the IT field), but I also have an big interest in the TV/radio field. I took a 1 year of media technology in school and 4 semesters of TV production at a local community college. And Ive been volunteering for the TV/audio department at my church (which is pretty large and well-known around the world) for almost two years now. Im not trying to be a news reporter, radio personality or a executive-level employee but rather someone who works behind scenes. I wish I could go to a technical school or a get a Bachleors Degree in Communications, but I simply cant afford to because Im in so much debt right now. I would love to work in that type of environment though. Please help.
