We're looking for radio talent & DJ's with potential whether they're from commercial, regional, community, student radio or within the music scene as well.

Even if you're completely new to the Radio Industry as well, we'll provide extensive training if you show a genuine interest & commitment towards this type of medium.

We're looking to fill more slots in our diverse programming schedule with diverse talent from all walks of life. This application period will stay open until October'21 so that it allows candidates plenty of time to decide if they wish to take this opportunity up. The schedule is flexible & open to do either specific genre shows or multi-genre ones.

Online radio is constantly evolving into more of a popular platform in terms of how audiences access music & offers the best place for a candidate's development in terms of getting a radio residency that they will thoroughly enjoy. So, if you're looking to challenge yourself with doing something new or to continue with what you've already been doing elsewhere, then you've come to the right radio brand which will give you every bit of creative freedom to be the kind of presenter you want to be & the show you want to do as well.

Considering the most appealing aspect about Online radio is that you have the chance to broadcast to a far wider audience base, whilst doing it from the comfort of your own home, personal studio, etc. Show's will require to be done live but exceptions will be given if this cannot be the case. We are a considerate radio brand & realise that life never stops with commitments changing or altering at any potential time in a candidate's life.

At this current moment in time, we're only looking to take on radio talent from the UK, but if we find ourselves with slots still open by the time we are about to end the application period, then it will be put to the international talent that can get involved to have a residency with us.

The sound & vibe of the station is a hybrid of BBC Radio 1Xtra & KISS FM. So if you're a radio talent, even just starting off, then you know what sort of presenting style will be preferably asked for if you're familiar with these two stations.

We believe in progress, so much so, we even have our own dedicated radio app along with a podcast brand, and last but not least, a YouTube channel which we've launched recently with using that platform to upload the hottest content from the best rising artists in the UK as well as station related promo. We're doing everything to keep pushing forward so that we become more of a legit radio brand each time.

To apply, you MUST send in details about yourself, what sort of show you do or would like to do if given the opportunity on our station & a link to a recent demo or if you've done any previous shows which have been uploaded to platforms similar to Mixcloud. (if you're doing this for the first time as a newcomer, then only up to 3 mins is required along with a short covering letter stating why you'd be the ideal candidate for our type of brand)


We will unfortunately reject any application that do not provide any or all of the above requirements. If you have questions before applying in regards to any aspect of our station or the residency opportunity in question, then please kindly message on either of our social pages on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram - @xlukradio

NOTE: This is a voluntary position with a required minimum residency of 9 months. Yes, this is a long-term type commitment but you get a worthwhile & enjoyable experience in return. When you fulfill that obligation, we will help with looking at your options before you apply & move onto potential higher-level opportunities. If any candidates wish to stay long-term with us beyond the 9 months requirement, then they'll be rewarded with various incentives that come with showing that level of commitment.
