Please keep in mind that these are all volunteer positions.
Web Content Manager
- We need someone to manage the daily and weekly updated content on our website. This content will be things like special programs, events, and other news and events around Stop and Go Radio and the communities of Lisle and Naperville, IL. Technical skills in web site maintenance and programming are required.
- We are always in need of people to put up posters, handout newsletters, membership forms and get the word out about Stop and Go Radio. These members will also produce the Stop and Go Radio Newsletter.
- Helping to organize, label and listen to our growing music catalog. This position is also responsible for establishing the license category – Commercial, Creative Commons, and etc.
News Editors and News Content Gatherers
- As we build our local news section we will need news writers, reporters and editors. Writing experience is a plus. Requires about one – two hours a week.
- Many people seeking to join Stop and Go Radio would like to have their own show. We openly receive show proposals and will carefully review each and every one.
- We take our commitment to our community seriously; therefore, a strict set of procedures must be followed prior to the broadcast of any local programming.
The following shows will be given priority consideration:
- Local News and Events
- Shows covering local issues, local cinema, local literature, local poetry, local art and other local gatherings of note
- Dedicated to local and world music (genre specific or a generalized show)
- This provides management with a profile of the volunteer’s education, experience, skills and interests in order to identify assignments for that person—whether on-air or otherwise—that will most effectively serve the station’s mission.
Submit a Program Proposal
- This provides the Program Director with a detailed description of the proposed program as well as the volunteer’s qualifications to host such a program.
- Stop and Go Radio is committed to honest and fair feedback. The audition is an opportunity to determine whether an individual possesses the necessary on-air verbal and presentation skills. It is better to identify this in the beginning rather than after both parties have committed significant time and energy to training.
- This is meant to include the “classroom” learning, the in-studio/on-air apprenticeship, and the production of a successful on-air “demo” recording.
If your show proposal is approved and you successfully complete your audition, you will be scheduled for training. Training includes:
- “Classroom training”
- In-studio/on-air apprenticeship
- Production of a successful on-air “demo” recording
Updates to follow – this is a rough draft.
