A man buying time on CBS RADIO Talk KXNT-A/LAS VEGAS to find a job is drawing attention to himself and the radio station.
NBC affiliate KVBC-TV/LAS VEGAS reports that DAVE WILSON, whose career has been spent in the building materials business, is buying "situations wanted" ads on KXNT, telling the TV station's HETTY CHANG, "In order to stand out from everyone else that's looking for a job, I need to do something different. I'm selling my ability to hopefully get a job." WILSON paid a "couple hundred dollars" for the ads, and said, "I'm pretty confident I'm going to get some phone calls, and we'll see how it goes. But I feel pretty confident."
KXNT PD JACK LANDRETH said, "When I got the call from DAVE a few weeks ago, I go, 'Why didn't anyone think of that?' DAVE is the first."
