PERSONNEL OF RADIO-WISH INTERNATIONAL
It’s important for musicians to be aware that radio stations aren’t quite the norm in terms of traditional business structure. Everyone knows what a receptionist, HR person, or manager does —but what about a Music Director, or a Production Director? What about a Maintenance Engineer? Radio stations are loaded with industry-specific positions, the details of which many musicians may not be familiar with off-hand (unless they’ve already done their homework, in which case, kudos). Just as you wouldn’t find a cinematographer at an accounting firm, you won’t find an on-air personality working at a grocery store. Radio stations are largely made up of employees who function in ways specific to the radio business. For the sake of professionalism, it’s critical for musicians to familiarize themselves with what those positions are, and what the people who fill them actually do. To that end, we’ve assembled this handy guide to radio station personnel.
