We are currently looking for a programming rock star to help us be THEE local source for information, news, and music.


This role will report to the General Manager and includes, but is not limited to, the following duties:

• This individual would be responsible for all current and new spoken word programming. This would include 60 second Community Minutes to full 1-hour talk shows. Also, under this umbrella would be seeking local musical talent that we can feature on The River as well.
