(October 1, 2013) Tim Boulware’s extensive news experience is going to come in handy in his new job. An STAA client, Boulware has accepted a News Director and play-by-play position with the Western Kansas Broadcast Center’s eight-station cluster in Garden City, KS.
“I am very happy about the opportunity to continue sharpening my broadcasting skills in Garden City,” says Boulware. “The ownership makes a real commitment to local radio in both news and sports coverage. They offer a ton of play-by-play, take pride in their news coverage and have a real passion for radio. All of these factors, along with a great staff made this a very easy decision.”
A 13-year broadcasting veteran, Boulware moves south to Kansas from Wyoming, where he has spent most of the past five years working in management, news and sports. He has also worked at radio stations in Moberly, MO, Woodward, OK and Huntsville, AL, and for pro sports teams in Missoula, MT, Muskegon, MI and Boise, ID.
Boulware spotted the Garden City job on the STAA website. “That started the ball rolling,” he says. “I also received a strong recommendation from [Western Kansas Broadcast Center] Sports Director Mike Pilosof whom I knew from my days working in Oklahoma. Then everything just seem to go quickly in allowing me the opportunity to articulate what I would do and the ways I would build on their already solid news and sports coverage.”
Boulware has been an STAA client since the company’s inception.
“[My STAA Talent Page] makes things easier because everything is available at the click of a button. Western Kansas could click on what I did in both news and sports and they can hear the audio in a matter of seconds. The resume and experience are all right there and when sifting through a bunch of applications, having your own website makes a huge difference. STAA is also quick to jump on any audio updates that I ask them to post, so perspective employers can hear the latest materials.
“I am deeply indebted for all STAA does in making the objective of a finding the right job, so much easier.”
