Studio Audio Producer

Radio of Hope has, for more than eight years, advanced eternal ideas that matter and sparked conversation on the most important issues of our time. We aim to bring clarity and Biblical thinking to questions of consequence, on topics ranging from Ultimate Truth to Authentic Spirituality, Sanctified Christian Music, Economics, Environmental Concerns, Technology, Science, Morality and Culture.

As a leading Values-based radio voice in America, we find ourselves at a remarkable moment: one of both continuation and expansion, of upholding our legacy while continuously growing ourselves into the future.

We're looking for an experienced radio audio producer to join our team. This role will be focused on regular duties developing long and short-form programming with an eye towards Biblical and SOP standards. Movement into Management positions is also possible. The person we have in mind has creative ideas for Public-Service and other routine audio production and cares deeply about producing work that combines great storytelling with Biblical concepts and practical real-world thinking.

Our ideal candidate is a pro at all the basics: producing an engaging and well-timed production for both short-form spots (PSA, Weather, General Announcement) and should also have experience processing raw long-form programs into polished teaching sessions.

Key responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with Program Director, Music Director and General Manager to select and shape concepts that work well for broadcast.
  • Structure engaging stories, from the raw-information process through the finished editing process.
  • Work on all aspects of audio production as necessary, including recording, multi-track assembly and final publication/scheduling.
  • Ensure that Social Media technologies are fully utilized for the Radio of Hope mission.
  • Be prepared to routinely visit area and regional SDA churches and (during the Spring/Summer season) staff the Radio of Hope RV (re-worked motorhome) for various public appearances. Standard driver's license with clean record necessary. 
  • Be prepared to serve in additional, operational positions, as needed, when regular or unscheduled staff absences require.

Qualifications for you to have:

  • 5+ years producing radio or podcasts.
  • Experience with script-writing, editing, and shaping narrative stories.
  • An understanding of how to express ideas through character, emotion, and story.
  • Be familiar with radio-automation scheduling and playout-system concepts and procedures.
  • Be comfortable working with Audacity, SoundForge, Simian, Photoshop, Word, Excel and FileZilla. WordPress expertise a real plus. Any engineering experience also a plus.

Across Olympic Media, generally, the firm looks for several "pillar gifts" in each team member. In each of us, they are central in our intentions:

  • A truly “Born-again” experience with Jesus Christ combined with Seventh-day Adventist Church membership-in-good-standing and regular attendance history.
  • A first-level appreciation of Holy Scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy resulting in a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested in dedicated work performance and success in a professional environment.
  • A Spirit of Generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
  • A willingness to serve this ministry as though it were located in an overseas location and not in the continental United States. As a Faith-based ministry Radio of Hope operates with funding available as God's people contribute each month. Ministry bills are always paid first AND, most months, salaries are paid as well. However, there have been salary delays and temporary reductions until catch-up was possible. Debt-laden or fiscally-marginal individuals may not be a good fit. 

Does this sound like you? If so, we want to hear from you. All applications must include a resume with cover letter and three letters of recommendation (Pastoral, Personal & Business/Related-Industry) to be considered. The more information provided the better. At this time we are unable to offer pay or medical coverage beyond Washington State minimum wage and mandated sick and vacation-time requirements. This is very much a Missions mind-set institution, functioning on a daily basis as God provides, currently in our 9th year of operation.

The Radio of Hope format is the Everlasting Gospel/Present Truth with a 60%-40% mix of Spoken programming and Principled/Traditional Christian music. For additional details on this topic we recommend that you visit www.saferadio.org.
