Event Coordinator/Producer

Event Coordinator/Producer.   Star 94.7 is looking for a unique individual to create, coordinate and produce various events for Star 94.7.  Candidate must possess exceptional organizational and communication skills, a proactive outgoing personality, creativity, outstanding follow-up, the ability to organize thoughts and present in a professional written manner. You MUST be able to work well and communicate well with others.  This is a Free Lance, Independent Contractor position – you will not be employed by the radio station by means of a weekly salary or hourly rate.  You will be compensated by a negotiated flat fee for a particular event based upon its revenue potential plus cash incentives that may include a percentage of ticket sales and/or a percent override on advertising sponsorships sold by you or our sales staff. Please send cover letter and resume expressing your possible interest in this position to skip@ytownradio.com.  I am the owner of Star 94.7 and will be the only person making this decision.   Please do not contact the radio station directly and no phone calls. The cover letter and resume (or other creative means to present your skills and talents) will be the initial part of the selection process – I must be able to see that you possess the means to present a product (in this case, you), an idea, or a concept in a manner that would encourage an event prospect (or employer) to want to have a meeting with you.

 

Since this is a free-lance position you can work on these projects anytime at your discretion – as the end result, the successful completed event, will be the only measurement of accountability.  The bigger and more frequent the event(s) the bigger your earning/override potential.  Examples of possible events could include Urban Adult Contemporary Throwback, Old School, or Jazz concerts (where the radio station is the Promoter and we’re not simply airing commercials for a concert advertiser),  events such as a monthly Jazz Brunch (with Everett James as host) or a monthly Sunday Inspiration Brunch (hosted by Pat Rudolph),  Father/Daughter Dances, All White Parties, station Birthday Party, Father/Son events (like fishing tournaments), 3 on 3 basketball tournaments, Watch parties, Singles Parties, promotions with area nightclubs and so many more possibilities including advertiser initiated events.  In fact, I would eventually like to do another Family Reunion like we did when I was the manager of Jamz 101.9.

 

Please, only candidates who feel they possess the skills, talents, passion, drive and energy should apply for this position. This is not an entry type position where you come to us with a “clean slate” and a long learning curve – you must bring a basic foundation/skill set to do this position that includes a good sense of marketing, sales, and how and why business decisions are made.
