Even though it is only part-time, I can now say I have a paying radio job. I was officially hired at KMOX this afternoon, and my first day is Tuesday.
It’s a board operator job with some added responsibility, like screening calls and other associate producer-type duties. The hours should be pretty good for part-time, and I’ll have my schedule 3 – 4 weeks in advance. The only downer will be the occasional overnight shift on Saturdays (into early Sunday morning), but I know I can handle that. And it’s not like I didn’t expect it. I am on the bottom, after all. But, on the bright side, I do hear some of the most interesting callers are on late at night.
Now I need to figure out where to park. When I was there for my interview, I parked in a lot that cost me $9. Hopefully I can find something at least a little cheaper, or else I’ll be taking the Metrolink and walking a few blocks to KMOX.
