WFNU-LP Station Coordinator

Please note that this is a part-time position (20 hours/week) with opportunities for growth as the station grows

The WFNU station coordinator is responsible for organizing, managing, and coordinating the volunteer base at WFNU-LP  94.1 FM Frogtown Community Radio. The station coordinator serves as one of the primary points of contact for the station in the community and is responsible for connecting organizations and interested community members to the station and its resources. WFNU-LP’s license is held by Frogtown Neighborhood Association (FNA), so the station coordinator must work closely with FNA to ensure that the station serves, in part, as a media extension of FNA and that the station operates in accordance to FNA’s mission. WFNU-LP is still very much in its start-up phase, and the station coordinator will be responsible for growing the station’s volunteer base and programming, securing sustainable funding for WFNU, and building the station’s current capacity.

 

The mission of WFNU-LP is to amplify the voices of our diverse communities in Frogtown and surrounding communities. WFNU-LP is, at its core, a community-based radio station.
