Who Are You?

You are a passionate and innovative fundraiser who loves your community!  You like knowing that your work has a direct impact in making your community a better place for everyone. You take pleasure in helping your team members succeed.  You love a challenge and enjoy working with a team to take them on!

Who Are We?

Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting is a team full of passionate and fun people dedicated to our crafts as well as our communities. Our organization plays a vital role in building connections across southwestern Pennsylvania and strengthening our communities through exceptional journalism and cultural exploration and education… and we have a powerful broadcast network to help!

We operate two local public radio stations and a local newsroom that serves the community across radio, digital and event platforms. 90.5 WESA is Pittsburgh’s NPR News Station and WESA News is an award winning, dynamic and ambitious newsroom serving southwestern Pennsylvania over-the-air, online and through our daily newsletter, Inbox Edition. 91.3 WYEP is one of the most highly regarded non-commercial Triple-A music stations in the country and has been a cultural institution in Pittsburgh for almost 50 years.  With a combined weekly listenership of more than 153,000 people and more than 60,000 social media followers, this is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced fundraiser to help PCBC continue to grow.

What’s it like working at PCBC?

The salary range for this position is $47,000 - $61,000. As a full-time exempt employee, you get access to PCBC’s benefits package, including our retirement plan (with a match of up to 6%!), medical, dental and vision, three weeks of vacation, sick time, 10 company holidays and 8 weeks of paid new parent leave.  We also offer paid parking, which is helpful when we can all get back into the office. PCBC invests in our professional growth and encourages continuing education and participation in conferences and seminars.

We place a high priority on employee safety and well-being; given the current COVID-19 pandemic, some employees continue to work primarily at the Community Broadcast Center — our headquarters in the heart of Pittsburgh’s historic South Side — and others have maintained a hybrid approach with much of the work being done remotely. PCBC is working on a plan for the future of how we work together in a post pandemic world.

PCBC is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse environment and is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
