The AFM News Team is seeking new volunteers!

Some of the roles on the news team are:

-Editing the script and writing headlines
-Reporting- conducting interviews, covering local events and meetings
-Producing- operating the sound board during the live show (this requires station training), editing pre-recorded segments

No experience is required, everything can be learned and it's okay to try one thing at a time.

If you're interested in having your own show on Asheville FM, the News Team is a great way to get some volunteer hours while learning how to use the station equipment.
