Sweet 98.5 (KQKQ), Power 106.9 (KOPW) and 101.9 The Keg (KOOO) are key brands in NRG Media's seven-station cluster in Omaha, Nebraska. We are searching for a Program Director that has the ability, knowledge and drive to be the best in all formats.
We are looking for someone who is competitive, innovative with fresh ideas to make a difference, and not content continuing to do things because that is the way they have been done.
You must be a Program Director who understands and relates to the brands and demos of Hot AC Sweet 98.5, Rhythmic CHR Power 106.9 and Adult Hits 101.9 The Keg. The attraction of the brand depends on the stations’ involvement within the community, the involvement of talent with the local community and how we promote our brands to the listeners, clients and the marketplace.
You must be willing to get involved in the local community to understand the listeners; how they live, work and play; and what interests them. Program Directors are expected to do an on-air shift, to talk to our listeners daily to get insight on what they want and how they believe we should be involved in the community. As one of the public faces of the stations, you will also represent them at frequent live remotes, client meetings and major station events.
We need someone who just does not sit behind a desk, but is heavily involved in all aspects of the radio stations and our brands.
NRG Media needs someone who has a deep passion for music as well as an ear for finding the next hit, keeping the stations tight and true to the formats. In addition, we are fully committed to our websites as well as all forms of social media. We need a Program Director who understands these are extensions of our on-air product, and they must work hand in hand. Social media and other digital smarts is a huge plus.
A must for the position is a Program Director who truly understands that great local radio is accomplished by working in conjunction with the sales department; and truly understands the promotions department at the radio station is the glue that holds programming and sales together. We need someone who really enjoys working with sellers and promotions to come up with ideas to help generate revenue for the stations, to brainstorm promotions, packages, sponsorships, endorsements and events that promote the station and add revenue. Someone who can bring a spirit of creativity and mutual respect to a team where these values matter.
Above all, we want someone who understands, lives, eats, breaths radio and the formats, and understands that great local radio only happens through hard work, smart decision making and teamwork of all the departments within the cluster.
What can you expect in exchange? A competitive salary and benefits, bonus and talent opportunities, and the opportunity to work for a company that values its employees and great local radio.
If you believe you are the right person … super competitive, strong leader, good coach, music genius, incredibly talented, fresh ideas, loves to work with the sales department, phenomenal work ethic, enthusiastic, plays well with others, and did I say … Loves to win! …please contact me! You will be joining a winning team in a great company, one of the few left in this industry, where individual managers have a high degree of freedom.
