More than just a DJ: THE TOTAL PACKAGE SHOW

  • Hello, I’m John Horton. Looking for a show host to do more than just fill in the gaps? Let me help. I am looking for an on-air position. I am passionate about Radio, can bring ideas to the table, love working on imaging and production, and want to be a part of the team. Not be apart from the team.

     

        My philosophy is simple: “Actions speak louder than words + Do what I say I’m going to do = Kicking the butt of those in the way.” I have next to no ego, competitive, my imaging and my production skills are really good, I'm a quick learner, and I am HUNGRY FOR KNOWLEDGE. Looking and hoping to be syndicated again. If you need a voice guy, let’s talk.I am also the voice of two wresting organizations: S.A.W. & E.T.C.W. To top it off, I do have my own online radio station too. So it would be good to catch me while I am on my way up. My website is www.thebigjohnshow.com

     

        With all this said, I ask that you please look at my resume and listen to my air-check so that I may be considered for an on-air position that you may have now or in the near future. Please feel free to email me at bigjohn@thebigjohnshow.com    I hope to hear from you soon.

     

                                                                Sincerely,

     

                                                                      “Big John” Horton

     

     

     

     

    Objective 

    Proven On-Air Talent with experienced Commercial Production, Remote Broadcasting, and Station Imaging wants to work for you. Utilizes skills to achieve a common goal: To be the best! Looking and hoping to be syndicated again. Can work phones and feed off listener interaction both on and off the air. Do you need help with imaging? I want to help!
