JOB DESCRIPTION:

Brand Manager – FROGGY 99.9 KVOX-FM and 104.7 DUKE FM – KMJO-FM

Let’s pretend that all you know about Fargo is a 1996 movie and our cold winters.  As someone who moved here knowing no one in 2013 I’d like you to know a few things about the city I have come to call home.  First off, a lot has changed since 1996!

The Fargo-Moorhead metro area is a massive, growing metropolis that has been surging since 2010.  To the west North Dakota is booming with oil production, 30 miles to the east in Minnesota we are blessed with some of the most beautiful lakes and cozy cabins in the world.  This is a community that supports each other, an area that believes in one another and now features one of the most up-and-coming downtowns in the region.

Want to live downtown in an urban setting?  Check!

Love local restaurants with outstanding dishes mixed with that Upper Midwest feel?  Check!

Our Hector International Airport offers direct flights to Las Vegas, Dallas, Phoenix – Mesa, Denver, Chicago and Minneapolis + a short flight to Minneapolis connects you to almost any destination in the world! 

This isn’t your parents 1996 VHS tape town anymore. Fargo-Moorhead has been named one of the happiest places to live in the United States, our economy is booming, healthcare is readily available with 2 major hospitals in expansion mode and our communities charitable giving is second to none for our size!

So, I ask you: “Is your next step just another place in another town to get somewhere else or are you looking to find a place to learn, grow, set roots and compete?” 

Fargo-Moorhead isn’t just any other place.  It’s the place I now call home.  Want to join us?
