The person in this position usually is first when it comes to who the public initially reaches
when they contact the station. A receptionist greets visitors in person and on the phone,
distributes tickets and prizes to listeners while maintaining inventory at the stations that
stage such promotions, and assists with other clerical functions as well, maintaining
fluency in some key word processing and other software programs. Quite often the
receptionist is officially assigned another job as well, with the front-desk position rotated
among certain front-office staffers.
A motivated receptionist could always move up, depending on how “value
added” they become to the managers they serve.
