Be the new host of Current’s ‘The Pub’

Are you passionate about public media?

Do you geek out about innovation and digging deep into the challenges facing public TV and radio?

Are you informed, inquisitive and inclusive? A good listener, writer, independent thinker and engaging conversationalist?

Are you now or have you ever been a host or a producer of public media content?

If so, maybe you should be the next host and producer of The Pub. Current seeks a bold, dynamic talent to be the new voice and shaper of this biweekly podcast as our longtime host steps down. The Pub is a great platform for meaningful exploration of the past, present and future of public media, and an excellent opportunity to connect with people — from millennials to senior executives — throughout the system.

This is a part-time, contract position. We are looking to continue producing biweekly episodes of at least 20 minutes in length. The host/producer will be paid per episode.

Are you ready? Send us:

  • A kick-ass letter in which you tell us what you’d do as host of The Pub
  • Your resume
  • Three examples of your audio work for broadcast and/or podcast. Please provide a sample of your interviewing skills if you have worked in that role. Otherwise, we’ll accept samples of reporting and other audio work as well.
