Job Description:

Talkeetna Community Radio, Inc. (KTNA) is seeking a General Manager to lead a team of staff and volunteers to achieve KTNA’s mission to enrich and connect the communities of the upper Susitna Valley. For people who call the Susitna Valley home, even for a weekend, KTNA is the only media organization that provides local voice and perspective because our staff and volunteers live in and care about the communities we serve. Join this hardworking, mission-driven team and work in a collaborative atmosphere to connect with people on-air, online, and face-to-face.

KTNA is community-supported public radio. KTNA presents a wide variety of programming twenty-four hours every day, drawing from National Public Radio, Alaska Public Radio Network, and other national and independent program distributors. Beyond national news and cultural programs, KTNA offers local news, educational and informative programming, music with local DJs, and emergency broadcast services. We have a dedicated corps of volunteers who produce music shows and anchor three newscasts each weekday. KTNA’s reach is both local through our broadcast and events, and worldwide with multiple online platforms.

The station is located in downtown Talkeetna near restaurants and shopping. Residents of the Susitna Valley enjoy a rural lifestyle with all the basic services yet more than 70 miles from the nearest traffic jam. Local all-season trails, an arts council, and a history museum contribute to a high quality of life. For more information about the area, visit www.TalkeetnaChamber.org/relocating.
A full position profile is available at ktna.org/GeneralManager. This is a full-time, exempt position. Salary $45,000 to $55,000 based on experience. Benefits include a generous paid leave package, professional development, a moving stipend, initial memberships in local arts and recreation organizations, and values-driven work. At KTNA, you hear your contribution daily!
