HOT 1079 (WJFX) is looking for someone to take over night-time radio in Fort Wayne. HOT is on top in the ratings and we are known for being the content leaders in the city.

You should be creative and passionate. You should be able to fully relate to an active, millennial audience. The radio market is good here. Our hosts are professionals who know what great radio sounds like and you should as well.
Can you work the phones (calls/texts), work social media and represent HOT 1079 at appearances and remotes?
What else can you bring to the table? Graphics? Basic video chops? Imaging/Production?
