Overview

Audacy Houston has a rare midday show opening at SportsRadio 610. We are searching for an interactive, innovative, local midday show host to pair with John Lopez on Houston’s legacy sports brand to drive the show, develop engaging content and connect with the Houston sports audience. Strong communication skills, an understanding of digital and social media platforms, and a full, honest investment in Houston sports are vital for this position. This is a live and local position that requires the personality to be based in the Houston area. Previous on-air experience in a medium to large market is ideal, but not necessary --- most importantly, this position will require a talent with a proven ability to draw in and relate to a passionate and diverse audience. 

 

Audacy offers full time employees with a comprehensive benefits package to include:  health care coordinator, medical, dental, vision, telemedicine, flexible spending accounts, health savings account, disability, life insurance, critical illness, hospital indemnity, accident insurance, paid time off (sick, vacation, personal, parental, volunteer), 401(k) retirement plan, discounted employee stock purchase, student loan payment assistance program, legal assistance, life assistance program, identity theft protection, discounted home and auto insurance, and pet insurance.

 

This position will also include, but not require or guarantee, additional opportunities and considerations for corporate podcasts, paid sales endorsements, and promotional appearances.

  • Other duties as required by management

Qualifications

Required & Preferred:

  • A coachable attitude… this position requires someone who is willing to work at their craft in order to be a valuable part of a winning team
