What does the job entail? The Spoken Word Coordinator is responsible for the coordination, training, and administration of the Spoken Word volunteers and programming department.
Yeah great, but what does that mean? It sounds kind of boring. This role encompasses a lot of cool stuff. You would, among other things:
- Recruit and supervise a team of volunteers who will help decide what Hamilton and McMaster stories should get coverage for “Morningfile,” our daily news show.
- Serve as a member of the Programming Committee (i.e. help CFMU choose which new programs will go on air this year).
- Along with the Community Outreach Coordinator, develop relationships with key people in the MSU, Mcmaster clubs, McMaster University, and the Hamilton community.
- Participate in preparing interviews, conducting interviews, pitching story ideas, and hosting Morningfile in conjunction with/in support of the Community Outreach
- Help train volunteers.
Do you need experience in journalism or radio? Nope!
Do you need experience with our recording and broadcasting gear? N’uh uh.
Do you need to have an interest in people, community, communication, conversation, and investigation? Why yes, this is a must.
Do you need to have in interest in working with a reasonably cool team of people? Certainly!
