About KKFI 90.1 FM

KKFI is an independent, non-commercial, non-profit, 501(c)3, volunteer-based, community radio station. Our vision is to provide a broadcast voice to the voiceless…to those in our community who are otherwise un-represented or under-represented by mainstream media. Our eclectic music programming includes blues, jazz, reggae, rock, hip hop, alternative, Hispanic and world music. Our local and national public affairs programming includes shows dealing with working class, environment, peace, justice, LGBT, and alternative health issues.

KKFI has been on-the-air since 1988 as the Kansas City area’s independent, noncommercial community radio station. The station operates a 100,000-watt transmitter, the most powerful allowed by FCC regulations, broadcasting to a 60-mile radius around Kansas City.

JOB OPENING

KKFI is looking for a self-starter to initiate and coordinate underwriting for the station.  The job would entail contacting potential underwriters for underwriting and sponsorships for events the station promotes.  The underwriter would also record and traffic the underwriting spots, and be responsible for the paperwork involved with keeping track of income.

The ideal applicant would be someone with sales experience who relates well to people.  Previous community radio experience is not necessary, but certainly preferred. This is not a salaried position but a contract position with earnings potential based on a generous percentage of the amount of money brought in.  They will work closely with our Development Director and Events Coordinator.

All necessary training will be provided by KKFI.  KKFI is an equal opportunity employer.  Contact Station Manager Barry Lee at [email protected] or 816.994.7866.  Applicants should send a resume and cover letter with references.
