Radio Host (Part-time)
Click here to apply


We are seeking radio hosts for both live and pre-recorded shifts. The candidate should be an engaging speaker, knowledgeable about classical music, passionate about bringing new audiences to classical, and curious about the world outside of music. We are currently looking for substitute hosts, which means that while you won’t have a regularly scheduled shift, we will contact you to sub for live shifts and voice-tracked (pre-recorded) shifts as needed throughout the week. This role is great for freelancers, graduate students, retirees, and anyone else with a flexible schedule. These jobs are on-site only (remote work is not an option).


  • The Radio Announcer must be an appealing on-air presenter of classical music with a friendly, conversational, welcoming delivery.
  • Familiarity with classical music is required.
  • Must be able to learn and use broadcast software.

We're seeking all ranges of experience, from the newcomer to the seasoned professional. Our training process is robust; we will work with you to get you ready to flourish on air.
Tell us in your cover letter why you'd be a good fit for this role and what excites you about radio (applications without a cover letter will not be considered). If we're interested, we will request an audition.


This position is on site at One Guest Street.
