News Director

Location: 
Saskatoon
Station(s): 
News Talk 650 CKOM
Position Title: 
News Director
Job Description: 

This is a rare opportunity to lead an award-winning newsroom in one of Canada’s most dynamic, growing markets.

You find something magical about how radio works. You get excited about covering the big story.

You are a champion of great (and tight) writing and exceptional on-air delivery. You are a student of radio news and know what “great” News Talk stations sound like. Your anchoring and editorial skills mean you’re able to lead by example.

You are digitally inclined. You understand that we no longer exist only on the airwaves – but in the digital space, too.

You are a leader. Your experience will help you determine which stories we should cover and how. Your knowledge and background means you can motivate anchors and reporters to give it all they have – and then some – each day and when the big stories strike. You are excited at the idea of growing young, impressionable, eager journalists and working with veteran professionals.

The News Director is a crucial part of the management team at 650 CKOM, working closely with the Program Director to execute our vision for the station.
Rawlco Radio is an equal opportunity employer.
