Sports/Play-by-Play, Kansas -- POSITION FILLED

#1 Post by Jon Chelesnik » Wed Jun 23, 2021 10:08 am

Dierking Communications has Sports/Utility player positions available at our northeast, north central, and northwest Kansas operations.

Play-by-play, coaches interviews and sports responsibilities combined with sales and perhaps other assignments.

Small staff gives you a chance to make a big difference!

Experience preferred, but willing to work with the right individual.

Fun, fast paced environment in rural markets where radio is still important to the community.

Reach out if you, or someone you know is interested. Resume and a brief outline why you’re the right fit for us please.

Please indicate in your cover letter you learned of this opportunity through Sportscasters Talent Agency of America. Send demo and resume to:

Bruce Dierking

Congratulations to K-State alumnus Paxton Gordon, the newest member of the team at KNDY.

A few suggestions the station shared with us based upon some of the applications they received:

* Too many demos with an application. One football play-by-play demo is better than three.

* Poor resumes. Keep them to one page and dress them up a bit so they stand out.

* State in your cover letter why you want the position. The folks at KNDY received too many form letters that were not tailored to the position.

* When position description cites duties other than sports, acknowledge in your cover letter your eagerness to do the "other stuff."

Hopefully these suggestions will be helpful in your future applications!
