Producer Station Sound
Planet Rock and Kerrang! Radio are looking for a first class Producer Station Sound.
As our Producer Station Sound you will oversee scripting and production of all station branded content for Planet Rock and Kerrang! Radio, including station imaging, show trailers, sponsorship and promotions, artist led promotions and other commercial programming including Network competitions.
We need a Pro Tools wizard.
We also need you to be a writer who can avoid clichés like “Pro Tools wizard,” while scripting interesting, relatable, personable content which is unique to each brand.
Creative mind? Good! Because we need your ideas beyond just audio production. You will shape the tone of voice for the brand, so we need your ideas for programming, commercial and online teams too. And that creative mind needs to be an organised mind too, able to prioritise.
We’re a small team at Planet Rock and Kerrang! Radio and every person plays a big role in the team. You’ll be an excellent team player who’s happy working alone and as part of the wider team to create the moments that make what we do special.
You will be our go-to audio guru. If we’ve got a big name interview in a hotel room, or backstage at a festival, you can setup the gear and record to the highest possible standard. With increasing remote access to talent you will be able to set up interviews on Zoom (and similar) and record and edit audio and visuals to the highest quality. You will be calm and reliable in situations where there are no second takes.
The opportunity to work on 2 iconic radio stations does not arise often. Can you take on the challenge of shaping and directing these 2 well-loved brands with creative audio imaging and production which will make other radio stations jealous?
If our imaging is the extra presenter on our stations, then you need to keep the presenter in line, and awake, 24 hours a day.
You will also have great editorial judgement to help deliver first class content when producing shows and working across major events. You will have a good instinct on how we can use content to maximum effect across all of our social channels.
You will have a strong knowledge and passion for rock music and know the difference between a Kerrang! artist, a Planet Rock artist and an artist who crosses over both.
We need you to recognise and reflect the sonic differences between each brand. Produce audio which is empathetic to the sound and era of the music. You will know the difference between a compressor and a gate.
