FOX21 News is looking for a producer that possesses strong writing skills, thinks like a viewer and is not complacent with formula style producing.
The News Producer produces daily newscast items, decides the order in which stories will be told, writes teases and other content, times news programs, edits video, and posts video to the website.
Change is good and attracting today’s viewers is a challenge you need to step up to. This position coordinates efforts of Anchors, Reporters, Editors and other staff toward crafting a compelling newscast. You will be responsible for developing the day-to-day on-air look of the newscast to attract viewers. A college degree in broadcasting or related major is preferred and producing experience would obviously be a plus. Familiarity with I-News, ADOBE editing system and the Ross animated system puts you way ahead of the game. If you’re not a team player, this isn’t the newsroom for you.
