Broadcast Producer Manager
Come work for one of the top classical music stations in the country!
KBACH (KBAQ) in the Phoenix metro area has a rare opening for a full-time on-air host and producer. You’ll host a major daypart for the station, while also producing creative content for on air and online, and since KBACH is one of the few stations that is almost exclusively programmed locally, with more than 160 hours produced right here in Arizona, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to demonstrate your passion for classical music.
Why Phoenix? It’s the fifth-most populous city in the U.S., in the 11th-largest metropolitan area, with everything you’d want in a big city — including great arts organizations, such as the Phoenix Symphony, Arizona Opera, and Ballet Arizona. Yeah, it’s hot in the summer, but there are plenty of nearby escapes, and there is a reason everyone wants to spend winters here. Fun fact: Phoenix receives the most sunshine annually of any major city on Earth. So much vitamin D!
