Zimmer Radio, Inc.


Are you a news-talk talent hoping to find a solid, successful company?

Zimmer Marketing in Joplin, MO, has a RARE opening for a Morning Show Host and News position on NewsTalk KZRG. KZRG has facilities typically found only in Top 30 markets, a strong culture staff, serving the Four States from Joplin. KZRG is one of America’s most respected News-Talk brands, honored for its nationally acclaimed coverage and human outreach during the devastating 2011 Joplin Tornado, and credited for saving “thousands of lives.” Today’s KZRG rivals fellow spoken word formats from Kansas City to Tulsa.

Zimmer Marketing would like to meet you since this rare morning opening means an opportunity. To fit the profile: experience in or around Talk Radio; News writing and delivery helpful; most of all, a “team player” who will complement KZRG’s morning cast.

Zimmer Marketing is a family-owned and operated media company that lives and breathes, creating a fun, compelling on-air experience. Audio is our business, and we know how to win, and we know how to have fun! We are in a unique position as a debt-free company; we do not face the burden of the large national broadcast companies with downsizing and a contracting bottom line.

Joplin's friendly neighbors and low cost of living make this opportunity hard to pass up.
