The question I'm asked more than any other is, "How did you get to be so handsome?"
That's the question I wish I were asked more than any other.
The question I'm asked more than any other is, "How did you get to be on the radio?" followed by, "How can I get to be on the radio?"
The answer, start with a gig like the one I'm about to tell you about.
One of our sister stations needs board operators. It's as entry level as entry level gigs get. It's a part time gig. The hours are mostly nights and weekends. The pay is in the Mediterranean/Baltic Ave. neighborhood on the great Monopoly board of life.
Note how far away you are from both Boardwalk and 200 dollars salary.
However, the experience you'll gain is invaluable to what could be the start of a new career.
About 12 years ago, I started as a board op for sporting events, syndicated shows and other less than exciting radio features. I stuck with it. Worked the worst hours for low pay EVERY WEEKEND FOR 2 STRAIGHT YEARS and today, I'm hosting my own radio show(s) and making a decent living.
You can too.
No experience is necessary, but a rock solid work ethic is MANDATORY! If you're not going to show up because you'd rather party with your friends than run the board for ANOTHER high school football game, don't bother wasting our time. We want people who WANT this opportunity.
