WBUR to answer daily local shows at WGBH with one of its own
The battle for ratings between our two bigfoot public-radio stations is stepping up a notch: 'BUR is turning Radio Boston, which now airs only on Fridays, into a daily show.
The former seeks somebody to:
Oversee a new, local daily program (five days a week) which will cover a full range of topics, from public affairs and politics, to the arts and economy, from cutting edge culture to the highs and lows of daily life that matter to the WBUR audience. Responsible for the editorial content of the program and its web-site and manage a six-person broadcast team.
The latter advertises:
[A] brand new daily program that will mix news and culture and which will be fast paced with multiple subjects and a myriad of voices including listener calls.

Ed. note: Yes, 'BUR already has two daily, locally produced shows on its schedule, but neither "On Point" nor "Here and Now" focus primarily on Boston issues.
