KPCC refines job posting for new co-host

mbrand-crop.jpgThe posting for a new co-host to work with Madeleine Brand has reached Journalism Jobs, and it's a little more svelte than the original detailed posting we told you about last month. The terminology for the target audience has become "the new American mainstream," with a focus still on "Latino and other multi-ethnic audiences." Here's how KPCC frames the job now:

We have an exciting opportunity for the right on-air personality. The Co-Host will serve with Madeleine Brand as a defining personality for a daily two-hour news magazine that will build on the successes of SCPR's existing The Madeleine Brand Show. This new program will reflect the new American mainstream with an inclusive sound and user experience that serves existing public radio audiences while simultaneously serving Latino and other multi-ethnic audiences. The Co-Host will help develop the sound of the program as it expands and changes. (S)he will serve as regular on-air host; initiate and develop story ideas; write and produce stories for the program; and serve as a public personality, ambassador and representative for SCPR.

BA degree or equivalent; professional, confident and conversational on-air delivery a must. Five years of experience as on air-talent on radio or television. Fluency in Spanish preferred, with an additional preference for fluency in a third language (Mandarin, Korean, Farsi, Japanese or other).
