Mr. Craig Autry,
Hiring Manager
XYZ Radio-TV

Foster City, USA 87650

Dear Mr. Autry:

I was pleased to see your posting on JobBankUSA.com for a news announcer for your radio station. The purpose of my cover letter is to apply for that position as I have knowledge and experience in this field, having worked for two local stations when I lived in Newbury Park, California. I have done free-lance announcing, as well, covering for various employees when they are out sick or on vacation. See my enclosed resume for specifics.

If you'd like to talk over the job and what you are looking for in the announcers you like to work with, please call me at 678-456-3465 to set a time, and I'll be there. Thank you for considering me for this job. I look forward to hearing from you.
