Are you worried about the state of independent, nonprofit news? Do you want to tell stories that matter, learn how to make radio, and hang out with some of the best people ever?

Thankfully, community radio is for everybody, including YOU.

WRFI Community Radio is holding a news team recruitment night at the Tompkins County Public Library! From 7-8 p.m. meet the folks who make the news happen at WRFI and learn how you can get involved.

Who knows? You may soon have the skills to make the next great podcast. At the minimum, it’s a lot cheaper to learn how to do radio here than go back to school. And we love teaching people how to make radio!

WRFI Community Radio News is run almost entirely on the great work and smooth voices of local volunteers. And we’d love to have new friends join us! And, there’ll be snacks.

As a volunteer radio journalist, you can … 
–Research and write
–Interview and host on-air
–Produce original features (podcast nerds, this is your moment)
–Operate the board (It’s like DJing, but for news junkies)

No experience necessary (we love to teach and learn, here) and all backgrounds, identities, ages, and interests are welcome! Whatever your interests are, you are warmly invited to come.

Looking forward to seeing you there! Until then, catch us on 88.1 in Ithaca, 91.9 Watkins Glen, or streaming online at wrfi.org every weekday at 6pm.

Can’t make it but want to learn more about being a radio volunteer for the news team? Contact our news team director, Laura Rosbrow-Telem, at newsdirector@ithacaradio.org.
