A station's traffic manager collects data from other departments in order to prepare a minute-by-minute schedule for the broadcast day. The traffic person is the daily link between the sales department and programming department, keeping up-to-date commercial time availability. In addition the Master Control Operators ensure the smooth execution of those logs and maintains quality control.
REQUIREMENTS: Many stations are willing to train their entry-level traffic/programming staff. Nonetheless, candidates should have completed high school, have broadcast experience and be very well-organized.
