Are you looking for a position at the heart of a community where you can connect with people and enrich their lives?

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. We are seeking an organized person with experience managing a team and a budget. A background working with non-profits, grants, and fundraising, either as staff or volunteer, is also good experience for this position. Radio experience is not required but a passion for community radio is essential. 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 for the Upper Susitna Valley in south-central Alaska. 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 active 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 $50,000 to 60,000 based on experience. Benefits include a generous paid leave package, professional development, initial memberships in local arts and recreation organizations, and values-driven work. At KTNA, you hear your contribution daily!
