Some of the best radio and TV talents in Seattle work for Metro Networks. Just a FEW of them: Adam Gerhke. Shane Cobane. Anna D. John Nelson. Eric Kirchner. Greg Adams. Mary Whitish. Jeff French. Sprince Arbogast. Travis Bailey. Nate Connors. Bill Odgen. Jenni Hogan. Harmon Shay. Heather Stark. Woj. Janet Wilson. Scott Burns still fills for us at times. There are a dozen more, all talented and all a pleasure to work with.
Am I biased? Sure. I'm Director of Operations. Does Metro pay well? Compared to what? Nobody here makes what they deserve. But that's true for 95% of people working in radio. Minimum AFTRA rate for a Metro part-timer is $14.64.
We're open for business 24/7. Thank heaven people have trouble recovering from the radio bug (you know who you are), or staffing would be tough. Right now, though, we've got a full crew. But sometimes there's an opening, and sometimes I need just the right fit for a particular station. I only hire people who can go on the air, are willing to work odd hours at least part of the time, who can get along in a small, noisy room, and can write reasonably well.
Experience helps, but it all starts with the sound. Email me a short demo, if you care to. My work day sometimes runs from 5a to 5p, so be patient if I'm slow getting back to you.
Just be aware: I don't hire hacks. The old idea that "there's always Metro" is out of date.
