ARE YOU THE NEXT BRANDON CONTES?
If you’ve read this website, then you’re aware of the great work Brandon Contes has done over the past 4 years. He started with us without much experience, learned the ropes, worked his tail off writing good content, expanded his relationships, and that hard work paid off this week when he landed an excellent FT opportunity in the industry.
With Brandon departing, we now have a hole to fill. What happened for Brandon can happen for you too, but not without a passion for sports radio and television, a relentless work ethic, high character, good spelling and research skills, and an ability to produce daily news stories and monthly features and meet deadlines consistently.
We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes the sports media business the same way we do. You must be able to let the facts of a news story do the talking rather than trying to influence how people should feel about it. Just as important is being able to talk to hosts, producers, programmers, executives, agents, and anyone else connected to the industry, and understand the various aspects related to their line of work. Stories exist everywhere in our business so a natural interest and curiosity is vital in producing exceptional content.
Last but not least, we’re an independent platform, not a corporately owned company. That allows us to offer more creative freedom and personal involvement in helping people advance their careers, but it also comes with a different economic structure. If money is your sole motivation then this isn’t going to be the landing spot for you.
If you’ve made it this far and are interested in the opportunity, send your resume and references by email to JBarrett@sportsradiopd.com.
WANT TO WRITE ABOUT THE NEWS MEDIA INDUSTRY?
Are you passionate about news media, active on multiple social media platforms, reliable, trustworthy, and enthusiastic about writing? If so, this could be a great starter gig for you.
We’re looking for a smart, creative, and hard working individual to write news media stories for our website. You should have strong knowledge of the news radio industry including personalities and brands who perform on the local and national circuit. This job involves creating original stories, and it demands a strong appetite for listening, watching, and reading news media content.
You must work fast and accurate, be able to take direction, and be a good teammate. This is a freelance position without a set schedule. If money is your sole motivation this isn’t the job for you. If building your name, being creative, developing relationships, and writing about the industry you love excites you, then we should talk. Please send resumes and references to Jason@BarrettNewsMedia.com.
BSM NEEDS A DYNAMIC SELLER TO HELP US GROW OUR ADVERTISING BUSINESS
BSM is looking for a highly driven, well connected, self starter to help us grow our advertising business.

The right individual will be creative, able to take direction, a regular follower of spoken word brands and talent, and a person of high character.
If selected, you will be tasked with pursuing and creating leads, having conversations on behalf of BSM and BNM, and working with Jason Barrett and Demetri Ravanos on developing new ideas to excite fans and advertisers. This is strictly a commission based position. If interested, send your resume and references by email to JBarrett@sportsradiopd.com.
