Mountain FM looking for new Smokies Play by Play Broadcaster

With my departure to Swift Current on the 17th, Mountain FM is looking for a replacement. The job as it is (and it may change) is Sports Director at both Mountain FM in Castlegar/Trail/Grand Forks and The Bridge in Nelson. I'm responsible for providing the sports content for the newscasts throughout the day as well as producing a nightly sports show called "Overtime" on both radio stations.

I also help out in the news room creating stories, attending council meetings and reading newscasts. Having a knowledge of news and an understanding of covering local news on the radio is a major asset for anyone interested in the job. If you're interested in spoken word radio our news director here is a pleasure to work for and has a wealth of experience for you to learn from.

Of course the other major component of the work is play by play for the Trail Smoke Eaters. It is an amazing place to work and the people here are second to none. I can't tell you how much I've learned since moving here in 2007. This is a job for an aspiring play by play broadcaster who is ready and willing to wear many hats and work hard. Mountain FM has given me a tremendous opportunity to learn so many aspects of the radio business. The Smoke Eaters, their staff and their fans couldn't have been better partners in that process. It's been a life changing experience here for me and I am sure the person who takes over will feel the same way.

Send your audio and CV to our news director Glenn Hicks at ghicks@mountainfm.net and good luck.
