ENTERCOM Active Rock KISW/SEATTLE afternoon star RICKER exits after seven years in the gig. RICKER posted on the KISW website "I consider my time here to be the greatest accomplishment of my career, I've fulfilled the longing that existed inside of me -- to enter an environment that had achieved greatness long before I became a part of it and then become accepted as one of its own,"
ENTERCOM OM RYAN CASTLE says “After seven very successful years at KISW, RICKER is off to a new challenge. He leaves in his wake a distorted version of the English language that most of us at KISW and our listeners have adopted as our own. He will be missed.”
CASTLE then added, “The search is on now for a person twisted enough to fill those shoes. This person should posses the ability to host a rock-based/lifestyle/personality show. Must present credibility with rock music and contemporary culture. Digital skills are very important, including ability to maintain website, blog, social networking, video and other platforms. Must be a dynamic on-site, online and on-air entertainer.” If the shoe fits, send your digital demo and resume’ to Hrjobs@entercom.com with “Host 99” in the subject line or mail to: KISW 1100 OLIVE WAY, Ste 1650, SEATTLE, WA 98101 Attn: Seattle HR, EOE. No phone calls, please.
