Cumulus SF Looking For Sales People

 CUMULUS-SF: We need sales people to promote our vast array of legendary radio stations like KGO, KSFO, KNBR and KFOG --most of them we have entirely fucked up with our brilliant direction and planning---are you aggressive? Do you know how to take direction? Do you crave at the idea of management royally screwing you in the ass and stealing part of your commissions? Come work with us.

  3. Rich, although you claim that KGO, KSFO, KNBR and KFOG have been "entirely fucked up" by Cumulus, everyone realizes that you would be thrilled to broadcast for any of those stations.

    Am I wrong?

  5. I have a buddy working in Radio Sales in Oklahoma City. I just called him about this...and he is definitely applying.

    I ragged on him about "You know, you're just enabling Cumulus by going for a job that used to be held by someone making good money--and now they're out the door due to a corporate takeover."

    His response? "Well, boo-FRIKKIN'-HOO! I wanna get out of this hell-hole (OKC)."

    I reminded him about the horror shop known as Cumulus--he doesn't care. He's divorced...no kids...he just want to live & work in SF.

    1. Great.

      And its those people they love to hire: willing to get degraded and working on the cheap. I'm sure he'd be a great hire....until he leaves or they force him out.

    2. your buddy certainly won't be able to afford living in SF working for Tricky Dickey.

    3. 2:46
      Talked to him again this afternoon. He's spending the weekend and a few days in SF...partly to interview w/Cumulus.

      He could live here. He would basically live in a studio. All he has is a King-size bed, a drawer, a sectional sofa, small dinette--and his pride and joy--a 65" plasma/LED TV. He doesn't cook (eats at McDonalds or cheap chinese joints)...and other than work, spends his free time cycling and playing golf.

      He could live here.

    4. Well at least he has the king size bed. Maybe the station will let him work a tradeout deal with Sleep Train for a mattress in lieu of cash compensation.

  10. Cumulus stations run through sales folks the way people run through potato chips. Fresh young faces, eager for a chance, but they come and go with alarming regularity. Sales is tough enough...but in today's digital world where few young people listen to the radio anymore and every potential sponsor wants the 'young demographic,' it's not a pleasant or long lasting job.

  11. Can anyone provide proof that on the day cumulus fired 4-5 traffic/news people last week they also posted an internal ad looking for traffic/news people in San Francisco?

    1. I can confirm this. A friend of mine at Cumulus sent me the job posting via email knowing I am in the market for part-time work. I received it the same day I read here people I know were fired. My only reaction was they're probably just looking to pay someone new (and young), less. I can't afford that at this point of my life. Yet part of me thinks I can't afford not to apply. - M.S.

  12. They will continue to get takers for the horrible sales positions because it's San Francisco and people are still needing jobs. These sales people are dispensable to KGO or they would be keeping them longer.
