What kind of broadcaster are YOU? Do you LOVE informing people? Are you a SOCIAL MEDIA magnet? Do you ENJOY empowering your listeners with FUN, entertaining & INFORMATIVE topics that breed conversations? Then maybe you're the next member of our team!
610 KDAL is THE heritage AM information station in the Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota & Superior, Wisconsin. We're celebrating our 80th year on the airwaves this year! And we're looking for a new broadcaster to join our veteran team. If you're a rip & read, 40 hour a week DJ who regards the web as a 'nuisance'--this is NOT your next gig. Midwest Communications is on the forefront of super-serving our listeners with the complete experience. We cover stories our listeners care about, give them the resources to know the story inside and out by way of our website & social media, and then offer them a platform where they can learn more about issues and/or express their opinions!
The right candidate WILL have news room experience, including gathering stories, producing packages & newscasts, both for on-air and online. BUT more importantly, the right candidate will breed and foster news maker contacts and will want to be 'on the scene' so that they can draw their listeners into the story/experience! Whether its showing them the thick black smoke pouring from the burning home's blown-out windows, showing them the angst and conflict over an impending tax increase at a county board meeting, or bringing them on-board a hot air balloon as it soars over the skyline (maybe this happens every day where you live, but with the lake winds here... not so much)! We need a news hound who gets it. A valid driverís license and a good driving record are required for this position.
HOW TO APPLY:
If this is YOU--then we need to talk. Forward me conversational bits w/talent & listeners, on-air news work (MP3) & news writing samples, online examples of how you SUPER SERVED your listeners, along with your resume and anything you think is relevant to this position to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: 610 KDAL/On-Air Opening, c/o David Kuharski, 11 East Superior Street, Suite 380, Duluth, MN 55802. Midwest Communications, Inc. and AM 610 KDAL is an equal opportunity employer by choice. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
