"High Plains Focus" is a public affairs program dedicated to the High Plains region. The show features daily interviews with politicians, community and non-profit leaders, and local feel-good stories. You would be the producer for this show responsible for booking guests and then serving as the co-host with an existing member of our staff.

"Go Hard or Go Home" is our local sports talk program. You would be teamed with our operations manager Ben Catley and Sports Director Ethan Denton. This is a locally driven sports show talking about Colorado professional and college sports, local Junior College, and high school teams.

Your responsibilities:
-Operate the studio for two talk shows and sports events
-Contact and schedule guests for each show.
-Serve as a co-host and interviewer for both shows.

To apply, send resume, cover letter, and talk show or broadcast air check to Ben Catley, 25-7 Media Lamar Operations Manager, at ben@25-7media.com. In your cover letter, please outline your ability to fulfill the skills listed in this description.

25-7 Media, Inc. is an equal opportunity employer. We are incredibly family-friendly. We want your family to come first and work second, so we want our employees to be at their children's ball games, school plays, etc without taking time or having to explain why. Your hours would be as follows:
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. These hours could be modified if extra producing and board work is needed at additional times.
