Volunteer Information

Welcome!

This is a special space we’ve created for our new and future volunteers. Here you will find all the printed information you need to join the WXMR family.

The four files contained here are:

New Show Application. Print this out and tell us about yourself! What is your show idea? Do you have any co-hosts? When do you want to be on the air? Fill it out and turn it in so our Internal Committee can look it over and get back to you with any questions they may have.

Volunteer Agreement. For the safety and security of both the station and all our volunteers, as well as to maintain our reputation in the community, we ask all our volunteers to sign this agreement. If you have any questions about it, contact the Internal Committee or any member of the board.

The WXMR Radio Production Manual. This covers all of the ins & outs of the studio and how the equipment works. Look it over, but you don’t have to memorize it or anything. You will learn all you need to know about the equipment through hands-on training & observation.

The Manual Appendix. You do have to memorize this one. As both an FCC-licensed radio station and a 501c3 nonprofit organization, we have a lot of governmental rules & regs that we must follow. There are serious consequences for breaking any of their rules, so knowing what those rules are, is critical to our continuing to serve the people of Southwestern McHenry County as their #1 community radio station.

We look forward to having you join us!
