KYRS Seeks Hosts for Locally Produced Radio Programs
KYRS Thin Air Community Radio is looking for talented, forward-thinking hosts to produce weekly current affairs radio programs. These individuals would gather and share information about the news, issues, music, lifestyle and culture that is important to the community in our area live on the radio.
Ideally the programs would be 1 to 2 hours in length and could require 2 to 4 hours weekly to research content and contact potential guests to interview. Prior broadcast experience is not required and KYRS will provide all the necessary training as well as on-going support to help the host be successful.
Programming on KYRS reaches, educates and helps thousands of people in the Pacific Northwest and this is your opportunity to be part of a conscious community that is making a positive impact on people and the planet.
We are currently in need of shows to discuss current affairs and areas of interest and concerns of:
- Native American Community
- Black Community
- Latino Community
- Given the current political climate, the Refugee Community is in real need of sources of information and dialogue as well.
For more information on this exciting opportunity contact:
Dana Matthews, KYRS Program Director
