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!
