Arizona's largest radio newsroom needs a part time editor for the assignment desk! KTAR-

FM editors coordinate reporter assignments, listen to the scanners, make beat calls, text

and tweet using the station's accounts, conduct phone interviews and much more. On air

write great copy and be the person in the newsroom who knows exactly what's going on at

any given moment. This part time position requires you to be available mornings or

foot in the door opportunity for an up-and-comer or a great job for someone who just

wants to keep their news chops fresh.

studio engineers.
