Job Description

The purpose of this position is to ensure WHFC's full compliance with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and regulations and to carry out the mission statement of WHFC by supporting the Coordinator for the Radio Station; being knowledgeable of FCC rules and regulations with regard to public radio; supporting WHFC's mission statement; participating in the development of emergency continuous operations plans; and collaborating with the full-time Mass Communications faculty member to recruit, train and mentor both student volunteers, interns, and community volunteers for on-air/online performance, production, fundraising, community events and related activities.

The WHFC Programmer creates the on-air/online content and sound of WHFC in conjunction with the WHFC Community Outreach Specialist, students, external community/listeners and college data.
