Due to the retirement of our General Manager in the Spring of 2020, WCNP is seeking to hire a part-time Broadcast Engineer.

This decision, of course, is contingent upon a successful Vision 2020 campaign.

The ideal candidate will embrace the WCNP vision for “Classically Christian” programming and be chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Maintain weekly station logs for transmitter and the EAS system.
  • Be on call for emergency repairs.
