Big thanks to summer KTNA volunteers Tom Himsworth for his weekly show Radio Atlas, and intern and volunteer Enoch Snider, for filling in on several music shows. We hope to hear you both on the radio again next summer. KTNA welcomes new volunteer Steff Browne as our Tuesday evening news host.

Do you like to read aloud, and are you detail-oriented?  KTNA is looking for two regular local news hosts, one person for midday news, and one person for evening  news. After you complete the training, it’s a volunteer time commitment of about 45 minutes a week.

Or maybe you’d like to share your favorite genre of music with KTNA listeners?  Your community radio station has weekly evening music shows open for volunteers.  No radio experience necessary, we’ll train you.  Some of our listeners really miss Crossroads of the Blues. If you’re a blues fan who would like to host a weekly one or two hour blues show, or  if you’d like to host a blues show on a rotating basis, please contact the station. Thanks to Trisha Costello for returning as a rotating host on All My Jazz.

For more information on any of these volunteer opportunities, please call Deb at 733-1700, or email info [at] ktna [dot] org.
