MORNING SHOW HOST – COURTENAY, BC


Live, work and play on Vancouver Island, British Columbia!

Work in the best place in the world - the Comox Valley, at the best station in the world, 98.9 Jet FM! We’re looking for our next dare-to-be-great Morning Show Host. The right candidate will be outgoing and ready to dig into the community. You are a morning person with LOADS of energy and creativity and you are passionate about making great, local radio! You get along with everyone and think that working in a team is paradise! You want to meet the public at station promotions and events and you are "Best In Class," when it comes to client remotes. Radio is your life and you are ready to bring it to the Island and you are prepared to be #1.

 

The Comox Valley is an oceanside community located midway along Vancouver Island’s eastern shore. The natural beauty and community amenities of the area offer an unparalleled lifestyle, including fishing, fine dining, community festivals and parks and trails for all ages and abilities. What does island life look like? Well, it could be skiing at Mt. Washington in the morning and golf in the afternoon, or maybe you’d prefer to go ocean kayaking and then have a lazy afternoon at the beach watching humpback whales and orcas swim past. It’s all right here.
