Each semester, WERW, the student-run free-format college radio station at Syracuse University, processes 100+ applications for a select number of radio shows on the station. WERW runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with college DJs having hour-long to two hour-long shows between 8am-12am each day. (Music played during all other hours come from the station’s rotation playlist.) If selected, DJs commit to their show times once a week each week. Radio shows on WERW are a semester-long commitment. Should they select to return, they must fill out another application for the following semester. No experience is necessary to have a show on WERW; we will train you and ensure that you are able to produce your own show before you can start. Attending training is a mandatory requirement for WERW.
Each show on WERW can have a maximum of three co-hosts. IMPORTANT: Each co-host must fill out a separate DJ application (whichever application is appropriate) in order for all co-hosts to be considered for one show. Failure to submit individual applications will result in no consideration.
From time to time, WERW will have openings on staff. If you are interested in joining WERW’s staff, having at least one semester as a station DJ is a requirement in order to be considered. If you are interested, please indicate this on the appropriate application that you fill out.
NEW DJ APPLICATION VS. RETURNING DJ APPLICATION
WERW accepts two types of DJ applications: the Returning DJ Application and the New DJ Application. In order to be considered for a show on WERW, you must fill out the correct application. Failure to complete the right DJ application will result in no consideration for a show. Each application has specific instructions with the next step of the application process. We will accept responses until 5pm on Sunday, September 8, 2013. After this time, applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
