Asia Pacific Forum Collective
WBAI 99.5 FM--Pacifica Network
Asia Pacific Forum (APF) is a progressive, weekly radio program with a global perspective on the news, politics and culture of Asia and the Asian diaspora. We broadcast every other Monday night from 9-10 p.m. on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City.
The APF Collective welcomes applications for member-producer positions. We are looking for people with journalism and/or activism experience to research, produce, and host our weekly live radio program. We interview leading activists, scholars, visual artists, playwrights, musicians, and others driving social and economic justice movements. Skills in audio recording and editing a plus, but not required.
Being an APF producer is a volunteer position that requires a minimum of 10 hours a month, including attendance at monthly collective meetings. APF members work in rotating pairs to produce and host one show per month. Other responsibilities include collectively coordinating program lineups, conducting interviews and editing pieces, publicizing our show via email, website, and social media, and producing and participating in quarterly WBAI station fundraisers. For an archive of past shows, please visit the APF website at www.asiapacificforum.org.To apply, please submit a resume and a cover letter (no longer than two pages) addressesing the following three points: - Tell us about yourself, considering the following questions: Why are you a good fit for Asia Pacific Forum?

Be sure to highlight any relevant broadcast or media skills and experience. - Tell us what you think of the show: Choose an APF segment to listen to, and write a brief critique of it. - Suggest a story that you think APF should cover, and tell us how you would cover it.
