  • Engaging personality and excellent speaking skills
  • Must reside in Phoenix, Arizona

This is a part-time position and you must be available to work on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Arizona time, as that is when the show tapes at our broadcast center in central Phoenix. On occasion, the show will be recorded earlier in the week, so you must be flexible to work on that day instead.
