KJHK Fall/Spring Special Program Application

To apply of a special program on KJHK, applicants must have either a minimum of one year of experience hosting KJHK Rotation, Jazz, or Breakfast for Beatlovers, or must have approval from the KJHK General Manager (generalmanager@kjhk.org). There are several ongoing and classic KJHK Programs that all qualified applicants may apply to host; descriptions are below. Programs marked with an asterisk* may require the host to provide additional music to supplement the program's theme. KJHK special programs have designated weekly times that they air; your schedule availability may determine whether you are eligible to host a particular program. KJHK is always interested in piloting new special programs as well. If you wish to propose a new special program, you will be asked a series of questions to determine your program idea's feasibility, and your own schedule availability may also play into if the proposed program is accepted and scheduled. You may be asked to produce a pilot show for KJHK if your proposal is considered. Please be thorough - only complete applications will be accepted. Thanks for applying to KJHK!

  • List past KJHK program(s) you have hosted in the past one to three years.
  • All special programs applicants are required to record and complete a promo spot for their show in advance of their show being considered. Once this box is checked and your application is submitted, it is your responsibility to email programming@kjhk.org to schedule a time in the production studios. Assuming your program has a reasonable chance of making the schedule, you will be given a tentative airday/airtime to include in your spot along with relevant information about the program you're hoping to host (type of show, music played, etc.). IF YOUR SPECIAL PROGRAM PROMO SPOT IS NOT PRODUCED IN A TIMELY MANNER, YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE VOIDED AND YOUR SPECIAL PROGRAM WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR THE UPCOMING SEMESTER'S SCHEDULE. Previous special programs promo spots from earlier semesters may not be used.
    All successful applicants are required to attend a monthly all-staff meeting, as well as a weekly assigned staff meeting. Assuming best efforts on both your and KJHK's part, are you prepared to organize your schedule in order to attend KJHK meetings for the staff(s) you are selected for?
    To be a part of KJHK, no matter what staff you're on, you must know and abide by the rules and regulations KJHK sets forth. This is vital to the station's continued existence!
