    Sports & Sales Opportunity
    We have a unique opportunity for you to turn your passion for sports and radio into a game winning combination.

    We are in one of the most sought after communities in Iowa. Close to Des Moines, small town atmosphere, local college, Lake Red Rock, Knoxville Raceway, and many other attractions in the Pella, Iowa area.

    We’re looking for the “triple threat” - Sports Announcer - Sales Person - Relationship Builder.

    Sales Person: This is an existing territory. It will be your responsibility to service, sell, and grow existing accounts and build new accounts.

    Relationship Builder: If you haven’t figured out by now that your sports and sales duties are built 100% on the foundation of relationships, you’re probably not a good fit for this position.

    We are leaders in the community. We do local news and information (this includes sports) with a 1st class effort. We have proven sales systems and many successful advertisers. We have years of history with both our listeners and our advertisers. We have the formula for success. We have a great opportunity for you to earn more money in a business you’re passionate about.

You know the importance of relationships in sports and sales. You are organized and motivated. You have the ball in your court...

    I will say, when I lived in Iowa, Pella was one of my favorite towns to visit. Especially in spring when the tulips are up, it's a beautiful little town.
