A day in the life.......
OK, there's not a typical day in the life of an ETR, however it could look something like...wake up and thank God for this day and the opportunities to change lives. You might need a cup of coffee for that, so go ahead, enjoy. Jump in your car and turn on K-LOVE! Now you’re ready to hit the ground running. Say "good morning" to your fellow co-worker, then check e-mails, submit giveaway orders, plan local social media strategy for the weeks ahead, and connect with community/church leaders, event directors, and promoters to discuss partnerships and on-site presence. Then take a 15-minute break and pray for our listeners who have sent in prayer requests. Take time to coordinate and check details for your next event, write copy for an on-air giveaway, meet with your lead to plan and brainstorm ideas. Lunch time already? Go re-fuel, cause you’re going to need it for your afternoon promotion downtown. Jump in the K-LOVE car and meet your volunteers to spread the word and the music. Fast forward a few hours, wow, that was amazing! It's late, you're physically tired, but there's an energy buzzing inside of you from all those incredible listener stories! You know you're making an impact. Today was a blessed day and on your way home you can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow.
