Do you have a passion for broadcasting, marketing and account services? Do you like to work on a national scope? This is an exciting opportunity to be an integral part of a national radio, television and podcast network.
In this position, you will work closely with current radio affiliate stations and prospective radio affiliate stations as well as television syndication. You will be a very important link between our programs and the stations. You will work to understand a station's needs and objectives and liaise closely with them from contract to broadcast and finally, always ensuring their satisfaction with our programming.

The Kim Komando Show is broadcast nationally to over 400 top radio stations with 6.5 million weekly listeners originating at the 24,000 sq ft Komando Broadcast Center in central Phoenix. Kim was the first national female talk host to discuss consumer electronics since 1995. As a consequence of her show’s success, Kim has continuously given back.
For many years, Kim has provided devices to better people’s lives in a segment that she calls “random acts of kindness.” Last year, to highlight just a few beneficiaries, Kim sent a smart TV to a disabled veteran who was unable to leave his home, a laptop to a non-profit aiming to stop the opioid crisis, and taught a young man dealing with progressive muscular dystrophy how to build a computer with the parts Kim provided.
Kim's weekly column appears nationally in USA Today, FoxNews, and in more than 100 daily newspapers. We send more than 12 million newsletters each week. We also produce books, consumer buying guides, podcasts and videos.
We are seeking a self-starter who is very comfortable building and managing relationships to oversee our affiliates. In addition to extensive client-relationship management experience, the right candidate will also have a strong sales and marketing orientation to expand our affiliate base and find new programming opportunities for the company.

You'll network with decision makers at stations and networks to clear our syndicated programming in markets through barter agreements, develop effective marketing and sales materials, and provide the best customer service in the business to current and future affiliate stations.
