Description

C.R.E.E.P. is in the process of revising its current broadcast schedule to offer more informative, wholesome and ethnically diverse programming. Broadcast schedule revisions will begin with the addition of daily geographical themes spotlighting Asian, African, European, North and South American cultures. These theme additions have warranted the addition of ethnically diverse radio personalities, disc jockeys and news stories to ensure that a fresh listening experience is achieved.
Whether a radio personality, disc jockey, engineer, screenwriter, blogger, or news anchor each role is vital to the company’s success and mission accomplishment. Each position requires culturally relevant material to be acquired and subsequently broadcast. Material must be entertaining, empowering and of a superior quality. Examples include culinary tips, language lessons and other methods of cultural education, community issues and news.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or partnering with our team, we would love the opportunity to further discuss all available opportunities with you. Please contact me at vhaynes@thecreep.net

Vivian Haynes
