KJHK-KAI Play-By-Play Announcer Application

KJHK Sports is in its fourth year of partnering with Kansas Athletics to provide student broadcasting opportunities and coverage of KU Olympic sports including soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball.

This partnership provides opportunities for current KJHK Sports staffers to specialize in covering one team for a semester, travel with that team, and provide live play‐by‐play of sporting events.

Play‐by‐play announcers will be asked to do more than just call games. We’re looking for dedication and creativity in team coverage and production of pre‐game and half‐time interview segments for broadcasts.

Successful candidates for KJHK/KAI announcer positions will be asked to provide comprehensive coverage of their assigned sport for distribution online at kuathletics.com/radio and KJHK.org , and possible airplay on 90.7 FM.

For more information about the spots available to KJHK Sports staffers for the fall 2017 semester, check out the application below. A full position description is linked on the application.
