Description

WCLY 95.7FM “That Station” is a unique AAA/Americana radio station launched almost a year ago as an app based, local radio station, and we’ve taken off in a big way.  Our radio station breaks all the rules of “radio thinking.”  If you’re an “out of the box” thinker that’s a good start, but we are “way out of the box.”  There’s not another station like That Station and we are seeking a truly unique individual that can sell creative, innovative solutions to clients that solve their needs and fit the fabric of That Station.  We’re not talking spots and dots here, this position is not for radio traditionalists.
