Candidate must be a team player with a great attitude and bring professionalism, personality, energy, confidence, and team spirit to our newscasts and our multi-platform newsroom. Successful candidate must be a strong writer, deeply knowledgeable in story selection, and have quick and thoughtful news judgment. Must be capable of creating content from sources beyond wires and feed (ex. Social Media, Court Records, reliable online publications) and be eager to add live pictures to coverage. Producers are communicators at heart and must be comfortable over-communicating plans and changes with managers, anchors, reporters, and production team to ensure your vision is executed on the air. Producer will have strong working relationship with director.
Candidate will become proficient in ENPS, LUCI, Edius, Oasis/Bitcentral, VOD, Livelink, LiveU, Crowdtangle, Outlook, Police Scanners, Tagboard, and Facebook Insights. Finally, we prefer a candidate who knows when to break the rules! We have guidelines about the way we want our newscasts produced, but we want producers who are thinkers and willing to challenge assumptions in order to do a story justice.
