Northern Community Radio seeks on-air host volunteers

Northern Community Radio is seeking volunteers to become on-air hosts for KAXE/KBXE’s On The River program and more.

We are part of The Trust Project.

BEMIDJI — Northern Community Radio is seeking volunteers to become on-air hosts for KAXE/KBXE’s On The River program and more.

The next volunteer orientation is set for 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29, via Zoom.

Hosts can volunteer at KBXE Bemidji and/or KAXE Grand Rapids. There are 13 openings every week for volunteer hosts with opportunities both day and night. Training involves this orientation and ongoing shadowing with experienced on-air hosts. No previous media experience is necessary, a release said.

"For more than 46 years, volunteers at Northern Community Radio have made up a large share of the programming on KAXE/KBXE," a release said. "On The River hosts a three-hour program of folk, rock, blues, jazz and world music that’s old and new, acoustic and electric and unlike the music on any other radio station."

For more information and to register, contact Brett Carter, volunteer coordinator, at (218) 333-9005 or bcarter@kbxe.org or text the word “volunteer” to (218) 326-1234.

Our newsroom sometimes reports stories under the byline "Pioneer Staff Report." This byline is used when reporters rewrite basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as an email or press release that requires little or no reporting.

Other times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

For questions about a staff report, call (218) 333-9796 or email news@bemidjipioneer.com.
