WVCP-FM very much appreciates the community volunteers that donate their time to improve the operations of the station. While most volunteers do a weekly radio show, some are involved with training, sports, or behind the scenes work with computers and music.
WVCP is always accepting applications for community volunteers. If there are no current positions available, applications are kept on file. Volunteers must be reliable, punctual, and agree to follow station rules and formats.
Generally, volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years of age, with good references and reliable transportation.
Volunteers are used to fill schedule vacancies which are left after all students on the air for a grade have received their WVCP responsibilities. Students working on-air at WVCP for credit are enrolled in Communications Practicum 291P.
The course can be taken for one, two, or three hours of college credit. Practicum students must meet the admissions requirements of Volunteer State Community College.
Therefore, WVCP volunteers understand that there is a slight chance that their position could be “bumped” if needed for a student enrolled for college credit.
Volunteers will be trained by the WVCP staff and previous radio experience is not a requirement.
Anyone that would like to become a new WVCP volunteer can contact WVCP General Manager Howard Espravnik by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or can phone 615-452-8600 extension 3218.
