Use this step by step explanation to craft a good employee performance feedback review for a board operator. Find the right words with quality phrases.

A Board Operator is responsible for operating sound boards and transmitting equipment.

The duties of this position vary depending on the size of the radio station. The primary ones include setting up and troubleshooting mixing boards, microphones, electronics and mechanical components used, creating computer software used for editing and broadcasting audio, equalizing the volume of the microphone channels to provide a level of consistent audio broadcast, adding effects to the sound like reverb making the voice sound bigger and airier.
