From November 24, 2014 to December 15, 2014 we will be accepting applications for the Winter 2015 semester. If you were not in the WAYN Radio organization for the Fall 2014 semester you must turn in a resume and a show proposal for your application.
If you are registered for the WAYN Radio class, COM 4680 for the Winter 2015 semester you may not submit an application for the student organization .
What is a show proposal?
The show proposal does not have a set format but needs to be detailed enough so we can fully understand your desired program. Include what type of format(sports, talk, music) , target audience, promotion methods and a layout of what topics, questions or guests you could possibly cover on your show. The length of the proposal needs to be longer than a paragraph and should also include an example script.
Do I need a cover letter?
Though the cover letter is not mandatory, a cover letter can give more insight on your experience and add a personal touch to your application. If you have never written a cover letter this is also a good opportunity to practice. Here at WAYN Radio we receive dozens of applications and including a cover letter provides more information about you and helps students stand out.
Look at our program schedule and review what we already offer. Think of a unique program that you don’t see on our schedule and incorporate your interests.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for students that have a unique taste in music and media consumption. For the Winter 2015 semester we are looking to have more genre specific shows and topic specific programs. But as mentioned above, if you turn in a proposal similar to our current programming we will not accept it.
After the deadline we will review all of the applications and contact selected applicants for an in studio interview. If the interview goes well we will contact you about your acceptance into the organization and will email you with further information.
