Sample Broadcast Screener Cover Letter

Notice how the applicant in this broadcast screener cover letter focuses on her ability to handle myriad phone calls that come into a daily talk show. She can field questions and concerns and 'screen' those people who are inappropriate, rude, or misguided about the content of the show. All broadcast screener cover letters need to include this kind of essential information in order to attract a hiring manager.

Hiring Manager

Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Bogart:

I am in the market for a job as a broadcast screener so when I saw your listing for this position on JobBankUSA.com, I knew I wanted to contact you right away. I worked in radio behind the scenes during my college years (see my resume for details). I have excellent people skills, can communicate clearly and handle difficult callers. I was a screener for local celebrity, Misty Jackson, during her year on the air as a talk show host and she was pleased with my work.

Can we meet in person to discuss this possibility? Please call me at 678-567-0909 to set up an appointment. I would love to speak with you at your office and find out more about what you want from the broadcast screeners you hire at ABCW Radio. Thank you for reading this cover letter and considering me for the position. I hope to hear from you soon.
