Freelance Technician

American Urban Radio Networks

Help Wanted

American Urban Radio Networks Logo

American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) is looking for an on-call freelance technician to help service and maintain their bureau/newsbooth at the White House. Their previous engineer, Al Peterson, has been with them since 2006 and participated in the wiring of the James Brady Press Briefing Room. He now finds himself too busy to continue in that position.

General matters usually consist of resetting levels between an analog mixer, a computer, landline, and field recording decks; eliminating hum and noises; and occasional computer and internet issues. There are periodic equipment upgrades and rewiring as well. The booth is quite tight, so flexibility and nimbleness are pluses.

White House security credentials are also a plus, but unnecessary; AURN will provide temporary clearances for the day of your arrival.

Send details of your hourly rate and availability to Adriane Gaines (againes@aurn.com) or John Campanario (johnc@awmcllc.com).
