SYRACUSE -- Almost four months after Gary Nolan left the only locally-hosted weekday timeslot at 105.9 The Big Talker (WXTL), the Citadel station is putting out the call for a replacement. "We're searching for someone who knows how to immerse him-or-herself in local issues and converse with local newsmakers and callers," Ops Manager Tom Mitchell says.
He continues, "taking a position is one thing, but we’re not looking for someone to preach a particular political ideology; instead communicate even-handedly in a compelling way."
Here's the official job description Mitchell provided to CNYRadio.com:
Local Talk personality, live Monday-Friday. Personal appearances, client meetings, and production. Experience with digital automation and audio editing programs a plus. Citadel Broadcasting is an equal opportunity employer. Send aircheck and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When Nolan revealed that he would be leaving -- at the beginning of his last day on WXTL -- he said that he would be returning to Missouri, where he worked prior to Syracuse, to launch a syndicated talk show. Although Nolan does host a local weekday talk show at that same Missouri station, we haven't seen or heard a single word on that syndication deal.
