Start practicing that soothing yet knowledgable NPR tone because National Public Radio is looking to hire someone to record all of those announcements that let the people know that they are listening to NPR and not, say, religious programming (we can’t be the only ones who have made that mistake, right?).
“Heard by millions of people each week, you’ll get to say, ‘This is NPR” each day,'” reads the job listing.
“You should bring a voice that’s clear, confident, and welcoming; a working style that makes the complex look simple; and be a bit tingly at the thought that your voice will be part of public radio’s daily connective tissue all across the country.”
A bit tingly, huh?
But it’s more than just a voice gig. NPR wants someone with “serious production chops” who “thrives on deadlines.” But mostly, someone with a good NPR voice.
