Job Board, June Edition

Long time OMW readers know that we eagerly accept employment related posts…both from job seekers, and those with actual employment opportunities..and post them free of charge.

Here’s a good one for the right, up and coming radio engineer.

Radio One’s Cleveland cluster is looking for an assistant chief engineer. The cluster’s chief engineer, Gary Zocolo, tells us:

I have a great position for an aspiring engineer who has the fundamental knowledge accumulated. It would probably be one of the best jobs they ever held in their lives.

Gary says pay is “quite respectable” and appropriate for the position, and knows this is the perfect job for someone out there…perhaps you, OMW reader.

Now, we’ll put up the official Radio One job posting in a bit, but why are we getting so detailed on this?

Gary Zocolo is a long-time Friend of OMW…dating back decades, long before the Mighty Blog of Fun(tm) was even a twinkle in your Primary Editorial Voice’s eye.

In fact, he is the OMW reader we’ve known the longest, and that even includes long-time personal and professional friend Scott Fybush of NorthEast Radio Watch. (We’ve had more hot dogs with Scott, though. Heh.)

We know Gary. He’s a good guy, a talented engineer (along with his brother, both well-established veterans in the broadcast engineering game), and we’d like to help him fill this opening.

Here’s the official Radio One job opening…you can apply through the company’s careers website (search on Cleveland), and we can put you in touch with Gary. Just drop us a note, and we’ll send it along.

Good luck!
