KTOO News is looking for some volunteer sound editors who can help us prepare recorded audio for broadcast. Some voicework will be involved. Familiarity with computers, a good ear for production is needed, but we’ll train you on everything else. If you’re interested, send us a note and we’ll get back to you. Please put “Volunteering” in the subject line. Thanks!
