With programming jobs available at WXPN, WNXP, The Colorado Sound, and KCMP/The Current, yet another prime content gig is available — this time at Baltimore’s WTMD.

Last year, the station was acquired by local NPR affiliate WYPR, bringing resources to tee up the Triple A NON-COMM for success. A very good, well-paying opportunity with high upside and low drama.

According to the posting, “The Program Director is responsible for the overall sound and quality of WTMD’s non-commercial Music Discovery service on radio and digital platforms. This includes supervision of on-air hosts and music programming staff, ensuring the format is successfully implemented and audience-focused, and collaborating with other departments to help achieve audience, revenue, and organizational goals.”

Necessary qualifications include:

  • A minimum of five years of experience as a leader in the Music Discovery format
  • On-air experience, strong interviewing skills and a track record of developing talent
  • Ability to create digital and social media content that engages audiences
  • Effective managerial and organizational skills, and the ability to think creatively and proactively solve problems
  • Ability to lead a team with diverse backgrounds and perspectives
  • Demonstrated commitment to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace
  • Knowledge of FCC guidelines and requirements
  • Demonstrated proficiency with technical and broadcast equipment
  • Ability to learn new systems and procedures quickly

The pay range is between $75,000 and $100,000, depending on experience.
