Is this the dream radio job or what?

If you’re in broadcasting and love the business – or loved the way it USED to be – and are looking for an opportunity to put your experience and enthusiasm into a career with a growing company, then we might have that opportunity for you. But it’ll mean moving. Moving to Sitka to become the GM of Sitka Radio Center – KIFW AM/FM and KSBZ FM, Sitka’s only commercial radio stations.

Let me tell you a bit about Sitka. Depending on where you are in the State, Sitka will probably offer more sunshine, less snow and milder winters than you’re used to. With a population of just under 10,000, it’s a chance to live in a place where you get to know a lot of people (without being in a fishbowl), and create local radio that matters and connects with the community.

Sitka Radio Center falls under the umbrella of Frontier Media, LLC. Headquartered in Juneau, it’s owned by two Australians who believe strongly in the importance of radio in any market. Creating live (where possible) content, that reflects the market, that serves the market, is what we’re about.


Responsibilities: Day to day management of radio stations and handling a local direct client list to achieve station revenue and profit goals. The GM of Sitka Radio Center enjoys a large degree of autonomy – no micromanaging and endless reports to Corporate. You should be a team player and be comfortable hiring, leading and directing a small team, handle local sales, think creatively, act independently and get involved in the community.


Requirements/Qualifications: You’ll need to have at least 5 years experience in media, sales experience is not essential but a plus. If you have all-round radio experience so much the better.
