ARRL Audio News Wants You!

ARRL Audio News returns to the League website Friday, September 20, and producer and newscaster Sean Kutzko, KX9X, has invited ARRL members to become a part of the weekly news report by submitting "station identifications" in MP3 format. "They need to follow this script exactly: 'I'm ARRL Member "your name and call sign" of "your location", and you're listening to ARRL Audio News.'" Audio should be as clear and distinct as possible. "IDs that are clear and well-recorded will be considered for use in ARRL Audio News," he adds.

Kutzko, who is ARRL Public and Media Relations Manager, holds a bachelor's degree in communications from the University of Illinois at Springfield, where he focused on mass media. He worked at several National Public Radio affiliates in the Midwest for nearly 15 years as an on-air host, production manager and operations manager. Kutzko has been a radio amateur since age 14 and remains active as an HF and VHF contester and DXer. Most recently he's embraced backpack QRP operating while hiking and camping. He's been on the ARRL Headquarters staff since October 2007, serving initially as Contest Branch manager.

Kutzko says the webcast will be available by 5 PM ET every Friday.
