8KTR relies on its fantastic volunteers to make the station what it is. There are many positions for volunteers, as well as on-air presentation and pre-production, there are many other useful roles. Most only involve a few hours a week. If you can help regularly and can work at your own pace without much supervision, we would be very happy to get you started. 8KTR is committed to providing a good work environment and supporting and recognizing everyone's efforts. Here are some of the tasks we do:

  • Answer phone, manage emails, greet visitors
  • publicise 8KTR & our events
  • keep subscriber records up to date
  • put out our monthly Newsletter
  • source prizes for contests
  • write announcements for presenters
  • produce recorded promos for community groups
  • load music into 8KTR's audio server computer
  • present local community news
  • assist with Outside Broadcasts
  • and much, much more...

Whatever you are good at; chances are we need you at 8KTR
