Jefferson Public Radio currently has multiple opportunities for talented community members to join the volunteer programming staff. We’re interested in people dedicated to helping JPR maintain its long-standing programming excellence. If you have extensive knowledge and love for one or more of the many types of music JPR broadcasts, or you have past experience in radio and would like to be considered as a substitute host for any of JPR's programs, we'd love to start that conversation.
Our current opportunities include:
Open Air Host (Weekdays)
JPR's signature music show is in need of a few new amazing substitute hosts! We're looking for people with solid music chops, endless curiosity about artists and musical styles, an artistic sensibility, and the energy to share music with others. We'll need you to be available during daytime hours both for training and for the real deal - either in the morning from 8:30am to Noon, or from 11:30am to 3pm. If you've ever dreamt of doing the 'dream job' - playing music on the radio, we'd love to have you. Plus, you'll be able to explore our 25,000 album music library and be among the first to use our brand new studios!
Classical Music Host (Weekdays)
We're currently on the lookout for one or two people interested and able to share their passion for classical music with the JPR audience on an occasional substitute basis. You must have a deep knowledge of classical music, an engaging persona, solid pronunciation skills and a fair bit of computer proficiency to be successful, plus have time in your schedule to be available weekdays between 7am and 4pm. We'll provide all of the training to have you sounding like a pro in no time.
If you are interested, please send an introductory email to Eric Teel (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating why you are interested, and why you think you'd be a great fit with the other excellent community volunteers who keep JPR running smoothly. No phone calls, please.
