  1. Experience as a promotion director is important but not necessary.
  2. You need a creative mind, but one that focuses on important details to ensure both dependable yet exciting promotions.
  3. We ask that you be proactive and go find opportunities, not just handle tasks assigned to you.
  4. You must understand branding and how to maintain high standards.
  5. You will be involved in taking a seed of an idea and turning it into a plant that benefits the station, its listeners and our advertisers.
  6. You will oversee a part-time staff and ensure they understand and execute your vision.
  7. The general manager for this market splits his time between two locations, so working independent is crucial.
  8. Radio is still fun; it is your job to keep it that way!
