This fall Raven Radio will be remodeling its Morning Edition schedule, and retooling its sound. We’re hoping to add some new voices to our roster of morning news hosts — maybe yours! If you think you have the chops for news, consider taking this short survey. Morning Edition is one of the most listened-to programs in Sitka. It is Raven Radio’s only paid air shift, and our signature news product. The morning news host sets the tone for the broadcast day — not just for Raven Radio, but for an entire listening community in Southeast. Whether you’re looking for a new direction in your career, or a larger role in civic life, or just some extra cash, becoming a Raven morning news host might be your opportunity.
