When you volunteer for KJZZ/K-BACH, you’ll meet interesting people, have new experiences and support the quality programming you enjoy every day. Here’s examples of what you might do to further the mission of public radio:

  • answer phones during our major member drives
  • be an Ambassador or read for Sun Sounds of Arizona
  • provide support for the Soundbite mobile production studio at community events
  • be a Sun Sounds Ambassador
  • give station tours

Not a volunteer? The first step to become a volunteer is submitting our online application. We are currently in need of Sun Sounds of Arizona readers to assist in reading AZ Republic live in the morning and Spanish Speakers to assist with other programs.  



All volunteer applicants must attend an orientation. Next scheduled orientation is November 13, 2018, from 6 to 7pm at the Conference Center @ Rio Salado College (2323 West 14th Street, Tempe, AZ 85281).

We have openings for the AZ Republic live in the morning and a few Spanish reader programs.

For more information contact Carol Maffuccio at (480) 774-8305 or cmaffuccio@rioradio.org.

Note: Interested readers for Sun Sounds must schedule and pass a reading audition
