Disc jockeys are the voice of radio programs. They work in radio stations where they host specific radio programs with specific time slots. Disc jockeys are responsible for following the radio program format and plan which has been created by the program manager or director. They organize all the material and tapes before the program to ensure the smooth flow of the program and prevent dead air. Disc jockeys play music, read news and information on air, answer the phone to talk to callers and receive music requests. They may also conduct live interviews of guests or phone interviews.
