Attention all prod geeks: The next great opportunity is coming waist-high and over the plate – you ready to take a swing? Cumulus Media of Fayetteville, NC is looking for a Director of Production that sees commercials, not as necessary evils, but rather as a part of successfully programming all 60 minutes of every hour.

Fayetteville is the state’s 4th largest and fastest growing city, home of the largest military base in the free world, and proud to reside on the front lines of the U.S. relationship with the rest of the world. We don’t have slow periods.
So, are you the person that can help us "program" stopsets as creatively as our Program Directors program the balance of the hour? Are you cool with the idea that in the 21st century, we’re not just competing with other stations, but life in general? Is the need to reach out and touch a part of your DNA?
     We use
Adobe Audition, V-Creative and Microsoft Word and, yes, the spoken word. We like accuracy and timeliness and customer service. We strive to solve problems and constantly improve. We work hard and have fun. Our team is a dedicated group of professionals who like to win. We’d like you to join us.
