KALW seeks producers for City Visions Radio

Hi folks. Our friend at KALW's City Visions Radio are looking for volunteers to produce one show/month. This note from the team:

In nearly all cases, after producing with City Visions, the producers we brought on the show were able to further their careers and find new work opportunities.  We feel strongly that producing for us provides a great opportunity to demonstrate and fine tune skills and deepen resumes.  

Good opportunity to learn from some talented and dedicated folks. Details below.

City Visions, a live call-in radio program, has aired weekly on KALW 91.7 FM San Francisco since 1991. (Monday, 7:00-8:00pm). We aim to educate, stimulate, and make positive contributions to discussions on Bay Area issues. Our production team – a talented group of multi-disciplined, public policy minded volunteers – brings a broad perspective to current issues. This is a fantastic opportunity for people interested in learning about radio production or who simply want to be part of a team of volunteers informing our community about important issues.


City Visions is looking for someone interested in producing one radio program per month. With support from the Senior Producer and others on the team, producers develop guest panels to discuss a variety of topics important to the San Francisco Bay Area. Production requires approximately 10-20 hours per show and consists of: researching a topic; developing a guest panel; providing background material, bios and potential questions for the host; writing copy; in-studio production on show nights from 6pm to 9pm one Monday per month. Attendance at weekend bi-monthly production meetings is also required. Show topics are flexible depending upon a producer’s interests and skills.

Please visit our website (cityvisionsradio.com) to check out previous shows and read the bios of current producers.


Qualified producers will be professionals looking to add radio production to their skill set. Excellent writing and communication skills are necessary though radio experience is not required. Applicants should be deadline-oriented, highly organized, willing to commit for at least one year and possess a strong interest in public policy and current affairs.
