2-for-1 Job Openings: Sports Host & Engineer

June 24, 2010 by

SYRACUSE -- Galaxy Communications has two openings at its Syracuse cluster.  First up, they're looking for a new co-host for ESPN Radio's locally-produced afternoon drive show Disturbing the Peace.  And they're also looking for a broadcast engineer who can also handle some IT-related duties.  Complete job postings appear inside the story.

Sports Talk Co-Host

As submitted by ESPN Radio (WTLA/WSGO/W249BC/W259AX) PD Chris McManus:

Immediate opening for ESPN Syracuse’s daily local sports talk show, “Disturbing the Peace.” Looking for an experienced radio personality who can co-host a drive time, call-in, sports talk show. Production and imaging skills are a bonus.

The applicant should have the following:

- Vast sports knowledge, particularly in Syracuse University athletics
- Strong interview skills
- Conversational on-air style

E-mail mp3 samples and resumes to Program Director Chris McManus at

Mail to:
235 Walton St

McManus tells that he's still part of the show; it's co-host Anthony Riccobono who has exited the station, barely more than a month after the show debuted.  But McManus says "we will maintain many of the regular segments, features and guests even though he has moved on."

Broadcast Engineer

As posted by Chief Engineer Tim Backer on earlier this week:

Immediate opening for detail oriented, results-driven, radio broadcast engineer. Work for a respected local broadcast company in Central New York instead of the corporate machine. Must have field experience in RF, studio, and IT systems. Send or email resume and references to Tim Backer, Chief Engineer:

  1. Sounds like a great job and a chance to get back close to home where i grew up. Being in a market covering a top 10 college basketball team along with a top lax team would be excellent.
