A New Year, Some New Jobs Open!

I hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday season.  I just got back from a week-long visit to the in-laws in in Boulder, Colorado.  My out-of-shape ski legs toughed it out through a day at Winter Park, and my wife and I found out (thanks to some blue balloons put in a box by my sister-in-law) that our first baby, due in May, is a boy!  Very exciting times.  I promise I’ll do my best not to gush about the baby when it comes, lest this turn into a baby blog.

As we look toward a new year, there are several job openings in the world of classical music broadcasting.  WHQR in Wilmington, North Carolina, has an opening for a full-time classical music host.  Arizona Public Media, based at the University of Arizona in Tucson, has an opening for a part-time classical music host (19 hours per week maximum – not ideal for some folks, but potentially perfect for others).

Maybe the most unique position I’ve seen posted comes from a couple of hours down the road from me in Louisville, Kentucky.  WUOL is hiring a full time Classical Host / Education Programs Manager.  This sounds like a job with a lot of potential for community outreach in addition to its on-air component.  And you’d get to work with Daniel Gilliam, who I’ve met a few times at PRPD conferences and seems like a great guy (and he’s a composer, too!).

Best wishes to everyone for the new year!
