Radio Apprentice Stage I


Radio Apprentice is similar to “The Apprentice” TV show in that it pits men and women teams, and diverse mixed teams together in competition with each other in a process of elimination until one winner emerges from a particular group at the end of the contest period. The length of the contest will run from April 1st until November 30th. All assignments will be given on a need-to-know basis. Assignments will be chosen from the various active elements and phases that constitute a successful radio station’s live broadcasts.

Stage one begins with a phone interview on the People’s Business radio show aired live on KDWN AM720 every Sunday Morning at 10AM. This process will yield twenty-four contestants. By April 1, 2012, twelve of our starting twenty-four contestants will have been eliminated. This will happen soon after Radio Apprentice’s first meet-and-greet mixer. The remaining contestants will consist of six men and six women.

Stage two will officially launch the competition. Much of it will be videotaped and all of the contestants will get their first shot at demonstrating their talents on live radio, reaching eleven states and a portion of Canada. They include Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, British Columbia, and Mexico. Many assignment challenges will be difficult, but at the end of each series of assignments, The Radio Apprentice competition will award (some cash) prizes to top teams and top individuals.

The last item on our competition agenda that I want you to know about is that “Radio Apprentice” is divided into 4 two-month competition periods. Low-scoring contestants will be eliminated after each period by a vote from fellow teammates, our staff of judges, and also as a result of low test scores awarded after the completion of each competition . Contestants will be briefed on these details once we have chosen the twelve who will participate in stage two (competition launch).

I would like to congratulate those of you who have received these instructions as you have been elected to continue with Stage I. You will receive an email invitation in the coming weeks that will disclose the date, time and place where we will hold our final interview/mixer. In addition, each of you will be given an easy assignment to accomplish on the day of the mixer.

Once you receive these instructions you will have approximately 3 days to notify us by email ( of your interest to continue this process. If we do not hear from you, your slot will be filled by contestants-in-wait. In your confirmation correspondence, please include which Thursdays in March you will be able to join us for the conclusion of the first stage.

Thank you for your interest in participating in our new “Radio Apprentice Contest” which offers one winner a regular segment or sub-show on “The People’s Business” radio show along with a weekly stipend.
