Qualified applicants will have experience producing and posting articles, slideshows and videos (live and on-demand) to digital platforms such as desktop and mobile. On a given shift, the producer we choose may do anything from producing a story in the field to line producing a newscast.
We’re seeking a multi-screen-minded wizard with a diverse skill set and a comfort working in a fast-paced newsroom environment.
*A strong candidate is one who’s mindful of live and on-demand video opportunities for all platforms,
especially our increasingly important OTT product on ROKU, Amazon Fire and soon-to-launch Apple TV.
*Enthusiastic producers with a four-year college degree, strong news judgment and the ability to juggle
multiple tasks at once without much supervision are encouraged to apply.
*The ideal multi-platform producer is one with prior newsroom experience who can thrive in a breaking
news environment in which priorities and assignments change frequently. Process and technology
evolve frequently as well, so being a quick learner helps, too.
Our shop is big on training and helping young producers develop their skill sets and keeping them on a growth track. In that this is a television newsroom, flexibility with scheduling is a must.
We’re currently building out our news team of the future; candidates interested in helping maintain a positive work environment are the only ones we hire. Is that you?
* Produce newscasts and digital content as assigned
* Work with director to time and execute newscasts from control room in a fast paced, breaking news environment
* Collaborate with reporters to manage and develop stories from concept to air
