You are curious by nature.

You are also committed to sharing the results of that curiosity with our
radio network listeners. You will source out news and information of
interest to our listeners and deliver it effectively and efficiently
with a professional and respectful style.

You will prepare and deliver hourly news features between the hours of

various website properties and via social media. You will also prepare a
weekend wrap-up of the news and information from the previous week.

You are comfortable conducting raw interviews on location and in studio
and producing those interviews into concise features to be broadcast via
our radio network as well as via social media. You are able to travel
to diverse events throughout the province but mostly in the Edmonton
area in order to share news and information with our listeners. You will
even conduct call ins and do live cut-ins during live events.

You will develop a robust list of news and community contacts made up of
public and private sector organizations and news-makers throughout the
province.

The ideal candidate (you) will have a degree or diploma in journalism or
communications. Radio broadcasting and production experience is also
required. A valid driver's license and clean driver's abstract plus a
willingness to travel to events with Alberta.
