A couple of opportunities from our colleagues at KUOW – please let them know AIR sent you!

KUOW is hiring an editor who will report to Senior Editor Jim Gates:



KUOW is accepting radio project proposals for Round 22 of our Program Venture Fund (PVF). The PVF provides special support for staff and independent producers to develop new programming focused on the Puget Sound region in Washington state.

Programs funded by the PVF can be a series of features, a long form documentary or a variety of short audio pieces. There is no set format. Projects must have a connection to Washington’s Puget Sound region. In the past, PVF funds have been used as seed money to launch projects. The grant is meant to provide radio reporters and producers the time and money to dig into a subject, bring new voices to the air and share the history, culture and issues that impact the Puget Sound region.

Important: Before submitting a full application you need to send me a short description of your project, no longer than a page. Once the preliminary idea is approved then you can officially submit the full application. All instructions are at our website (see below).

The application deadline is Friday, October 5, 2012 at 5:00 pm (PT)
For application information go to www.kuow.org/pvf
Contact: Jim Gates – jgates@kuow.org

We look forward to hearing your radio ideas! Below are links to past PVF projects.
