Dayton Radio News Opening

As part of our ongoing service to Ohio’s broadcast community, OMW runs – free of charge – both Help Wanted and Situations Wanted advertisements as part of the regular run of this blog. Here’s one of the former… a full-time news opening at Dayton’s news/talker, Cox’s WHIO. Thanks to Nick Roberts for passing this along!


Cox Radio AM1290 and 95.7FM – News Talk Radio – WHIO in Dayton has an opening for afternoon news anchor.

If you are one of the great talents that have been recently displaced in the Dayton, Cincinnati, or Columbus areas – this might be the dream job.

We have recently added a 50,000 watt FM simulcast to our already highly successful AM signal. It’s a big station in the market and we take our talent seriously.

The hours are excellent, 10:45AM to 6:30PM Monday – Friday. No weekends except in rare situations. If you love being in the middle of the fast paced world of breaking news – this will be a fun situation.

The salary is great and the Cox benefits are incredible, the best in the industry. Cox Radio is a destination.

Duties include:

– Anchoring fast paced upbeat half hour newscasts with lots of sound and voices
– Voicetracking weekend shifts for our Country sister station WHKO

What am I looking for?

– News experience not necessary.
– Someone who has a passion for current events.
– A talent who likes being in the middle of a high energy fast paced environment.
– Someone with a contemporary style and delivery, but command of a microphone.
– If you’re already a Fox News junkie – and have history in a music format, you might be right for this job.

I am looking for a very short sample of your voice. Please email this to [email protected]. Please keep files as small as possible. I am not accepting calls or emails at my normal address for this position.

Old fashioned T&R to:

Nick Roberts
Operations Manager
Cox Radio Dayton
1414 Wilmington Ave
Dayton, OH 45420
