The Wichita Operations division of the Journal Broadcast Group is trying to do something about the unemployment rate by holding a live webcast to promote employment opportunities within the six member stations.
Careers in Radio, produced with support from Periscope Digital Media, will stream live, July 28 from 12:30 – 1 p.m. CDT, simultaneously from the websites of all six stations: KLIO(AM), KFDI(FM), KICT(FM), KYQQ(FM), KFXJ(FM) and KFTI(FM).
The show will be hosted by Journal Broadcast Group – Wichita Operations Vice President and General Manager Eric McCart and feature interviews with station staffers as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day operations.
According to McCart, the goal of Careers in Radio is to attract talent who wouldn’t otherwise seek a career in the radio industry. Finding just the right candidate for the availabilities at hand in promotions, advertising and programming.
