Yesterday I got back from an amazing trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks (for a friend’s wedding, I swear!). While I spent most of the time outside, I also spent a lot of time in the car driving from place to place or looking for wildlife (of course, we ran into the Grizzly bear while I was out of the car hiking). With all of the driving, we were lucky that the rental car was equipped with a SirusXM radio so Amy and I could reminisce by listening to 90s on 9. With the lack of billboards in the park and the satellite radio, I figured that I was out of the grip of Clear Channel Communications for at least a little bit. I was wrong. They even have stations on SiriusXM–Clear Channel, which is based in San Antonio, TX, is a media behemoth. If you’re in a car, and you’re not being reached by them, then you’re an exception. The company owns 850 radio stations and nearly 1 million outdoor advertising displays (think billboards). Unless your favorite radio station is NPR, there’s a very good chance that Clear Channel owns it.
Clear Channel Communications got its start when Lowry Mays and Red McCombs (great names) formed the “San Antonio Broadcasting Company to acquire KEEZ-FM for $125,000.” The purchase worked out, and the company kept growing from there. You can read up on the whole history of Clear Channel here. Ownership has changed a few times, but the general idea of reaching people on the move has stayed the same. You may think that radio and outdoor advertising are outdated businesses, but Clear Channel is doing everything that it can to keep up including digital outdoor advertising and a serve called IHeartRadio that lets you listen to your favorite radio stations over the Internet. While Clear Channel is a massive company, they’re a bit more approachable because all of their stations kind of feel like independent businesses. Luckily, Clear Channel Communications lists all of its job opportunities across stations and business units on its Careers page. You can either search their jobs or not select any search criteria to view all of their jobs. There are more than 200 positions all across the country, so I’m not going to list them out, but they’re in areas like Account Management, Production, Marketing, Programming, Promotions/Events, Editorial, and lots more. There really is something for nearly everyone.
