Seeking Production Interns
KPFT Needs Assistants for Open Journal
In November, KPFT relaunched its morning program, Open Journal, with a new format. Now we are looking for some helpful folks with a little spare time to be part of our team.
We are seeking volunteer production assistants to help make our 8 a.m. weekday program even better. The best part of all is you can help from home or wherever you are.
Aspiring production assistants should be able to help at least two hours a week, and ideally have a Google account, as we collaborate on our calendar and scripts this way. Some of the tasks we need help with each week include:
Compiling our local events calendar for each day.
Finding local releases to feature in our Song of the Day
Researching guests, composing questions and writing intros
General help with scripting and flow
If you have ever been curious about radio, thought 'hey that would be fun' but just did not want to try it on your own, love to make it sound good but don't need to be the host (or even like to try one day), being a production assistant is a great way to learn, to work with veteran talent and contribute to something fun.
to get involved, email email@example.com with the subject line "Production Assistant."

Music Lovers Wanted
KPFT seeking new volunteers
KPFT is seeking prospective volunteers to help out in our Music Library.
Our Music Library is a massive resource for our DJs and listeners. Volunteers will be assigned a number of different tasks. Initially, you'll help with refiling CDs and miscellaneous tasks. As you progress, you may be assigned to screen music for language or fit to the station, and rip music for inclusion into the upgrade of our Music Library, focused on digital. We're also looking for people who can spot up-and-coming bands to feature on our HD3 music stream.
Successful volunteers will be team players who work well with others, have the ability to alphabetize and can manage multiple tasks. Shifts happen weekdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. This is an unpaid volunteer gig, but is one of the most fun times ever for anyone into music, music discovery and turning others on to outstanding music.
Interested? Drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Music Volunteer." We'll take it from there!
Current Volunteer Opportunities at KPFT
Get On The Air With Open Journal
Airing weekdays at 8 a.m., Open Journal is one of KPFT's longest running programs. It has welcomed a eclectic range of subject matter and visitors. From musicians to scholars, activists to iconoclasts, Open Journal's roster has featured the memorable, the invigorating and the informed.
Open Journal is one of KPFT's most interactive programs, as everything from its guests to calendar events to the Song of the Day is shaped by listeners. We welcome people in the community making a difference, local musicians and many others to share their passions with listeners.
Have an idea for a local guest? Tweet us @KPFT, send a Facebook message (we're KPFT Houston) or email email@example.com with your suggestions. No phone guests, please. We're looking for people willing to come to our studios at 8 a.m., ready for a lively conversation.
Openings on HD3/ Web Schedule
KPFT has immediate openings for programming on its HD3/web streaming grid on Mondays (1-5 p.m.), Tuesdays (11 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Fridays (1-3 p.m.).
Our HD3/web streaming channel is KPFT's pioneering schedule offered to online listeners and owners of HD Radios. As the only Pacifica radio station broadcasting in HD, KPFT features for HD Radio owners our regular FM stream with fuller sound on HD1, Rice Radio on HD2 and local programming on HD3. Don't own an HD Radio? No problem. KPFT's web player gives listeners access to programming on HD3.
Throughout the day we air short announcements that help our listeners find out about events, community resources, or issues affecting the health and safety of the public. Typically 60 seconds, these PSAs must be non-commercial in nature and consistent with the overall mission of KPFT and the Pacifica Foundation.
Houston's diverse communities represent more than the cardboard capitalist consumer the system would have us become. We simply refuse to give up fighting on issues important to us and our future. If you're not involved, the first step towards change is showing up and adding your efforts. Let's all come together and make waves!
