Podcaster and Segment Support

Arts & Culture Regular - more than 6 months Melbourne VIC

About this opportunity

Know your way around audio editing software? Want your voice broadcast to 1000’s of listeners?

JOY is one of the world’s only full-time LGBTIQA+ media outlets which includes its dedicated 24/7 radio station JOY 94.9. JOY’s Up Early with Annie and Ando is seeking a podcaster with a twist. JOY’s flagship early morning weekday program was created in June 2020 and has become a regular feature for listeners between 6-7am across Australia and live streamed across the world.

What’s the twist? The role also includes regular weekly input where you host on-air segments such as “Cameo Cash” and “Ask Annie and Ando Anything”. These can be pre-recorded and involve you doing a little research. We want a creative thinker that can share ideas and challenge our thinking.

Podcasting requires each weekday show to be edited to exclude music and posted within 48 hours. At times there are special guest interviews which require stand-alone pods and may require fast turn-around to support on-air promotion. Each Friday/weekend you will be required to build a “weekly wrap” of the best bits from the past week to air on Monday at the top of the show. This includes your voiceover (samples can be provided).

There’s no expectation for you to be attend studio each morning. We meet weekly via Zoom to plan the week ahead and use socials to connect in-between. Pre-recorded segments can be managed via remote access (in other words you can be anywhere in the world). Our priority is the podcasting, and to be on air, you will need to have completed JOY’s radio training or podcast course (you can still complete this online or if you have prior community radio training that helps too).

Qualities that we rate:

  • Teamwork
  • Curiosity and challenge
  • Accuracy
  • Fun

Experience we seek:

  • Skilled in audio editing using Audacity or Adobe Audition
  • Natural and confident on-air sound
  • Creative thinker with demonstrated results
  • Bonus if you have video editing and social media skills


  • 5 x daily podcasts per week (can be completed a few times in a one-week block)
  • 1 x Weekly Wrap segment (pre-record of the best bits of the week)
  • 2-3 on-air segments hosted by you!
