Get Involved With Student Radio!
KURE is always looking for new people to join our team. All positions are on a volunteer basis. ISU students, faculty, and alumni are eligible work at KURE, though you must be a student to serve on the board of directors.
The quickest and easiest way to become a member of the KURE team is applying to become a DJ. It is a two part application; you must first fill out the online form, and then send a sample 2 hour playlist to the Programming Director. Instructions regarding the playlist are included on the last page of the online application.
DJ Responsibilities: As a DJ, your prime responsibility is to play music on the air. First time DJ’s will start with a one hour long show, aired weekly. You and the Programming Director will work together on developing a cohesive format for your show, regarding both your on air presence and your music selections.
The Marketing side of this committee helps spread the word of the station through creative means, and the Underwriting Committee works with businesses regarding underwriting and grants.
Meetings are held in the KURE office on Tuesdays at 6:30PM.
Those interested should email the Marketing Director.
The Music Committee listens to and reviews a slew of albums, helps determine the musical direction of KURE, and helps decide what albums are important enough to add to the studio and which ones aren’t. The responsibility of a Music Committee Member is to simply listen to and review several albums each week, and submit them to the Music Director for insertion into the KURE music library.
Meetings are held in the KURE office on Sundays at 6PM.
