Job Description:

WRVO Public Media has a unique opportunity for an individual with cross-platform media skills: we’re looking for someone who will be the local on-air host for our morning news magazine, and who will also contribute to our revenue growth by seeking out grants and underwriting contracts.  The Morning Edition Host/Grants and Underwriting Contributor is the local host for WRVO’s most important daypart, and writes, prepares and delivers news and continuity during local portions of Morning Edition.  When not hosting Morning Edition, he or she bolsters revenue for WRVO by identifying and pursuing potential grant and underwriting opportunities.  The Morning Edition Host/Grants and Underwriting Contributor works closely with both the WRVO Station Manager/Program Director and the Director of News and Public Affairs to assure timely, accurate delivery of local news content to WRVO listeners, adhering to the objectives and values set forth by WRVO Public Media and the State University of New York at Oswego.  While this position is located on the campus of SUNY Oswego, this is not a New York State Position.

WRVO Public Media is the leading public radio station in the Syracuse, New York market.  Our 13-station network reaches approximately 20 counties in upstate New York and Southern Ontario, and includes stations in Oswego, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown, Ithaca, Cortland, Hamilton, Norwich, Rome, Geneva and Clayton.  Our News Department is consistently honored by the Associated Press and other journalism organizations.  Our main studios are located on the Campus of SUNY Oswego, with satellite studios in downtown Syracuse.

Salary:  Commensurate with qualifications and experience.
