XL 103 Program Director

Behind every great radio station is a great Program Director. XL 103 is that great radio station. Are you the next great PD to lead it?


While Edmontonians might disagree, Forbes named Calgary the 3rd best city in the world to live in. Banff and Lake Louise are in your backyard, and the city’s year-round recreation facilities are the envy of almost every other city. Alberta’s low taxes and reasonable cost-of-living help make Calgary a fantastic place to call home and raise a family.


As the Program Director of XL 103, you will guide this heritage brand to new heights, playing the most enduring music ever made. You will have the support of a strong and experienced team to help you guide XL 103’s on-air product, marketing, research, and audience growth.
