Working closely with the Music Department Coordinator, the Music Librarian and Music Volunteer Coordinator will work to promote local music and emerging artists both on-air and over the CKUT music blog, as well as assist with the development of CKUT’s digital music library.

The individual will also package and distribute New Shit as a podcast, which will ideally solidify a process that CKUT can use for all of its programs. The candidate will also provide support for two other in-house programs: The Montreal Sessions, which is a two hour weekly radio show that is programmed by a different local curator (such as musicians, artists, promoters, record labels, or festivals) and If You Got Ears, which follows the same monthly-curator structure, but is focused on more avant-garde and experimental aesthetics. Finally, the position involves developing a plan to improve the integration and training of new Music Department volunteers.
